Vinnie Moore

Hi Vinnie… I’m grateful I have the chance to interview you. Apart from being a big UFO fan, I do believe that you are one of the top rock guitarists of our time…
V: Thank you very much for the kind words and also for your interest in talking to me. It means a lot.
So, what’s the story behind your eighth solo album, Aerial Visions? Why did it take you 6 years to come up with a new solo album?

Vinnie Moore - Aerial Visions

Vinnie Moore hasn’t come up with a solo album for about six years now. There are many Vinnie’s followers that have been anticipating for a new solo work and finally their prayers are answered! Vinnie started working on his new solo release almost two years ago. Two of those instrumental tracks, “Now’s the Time” & “Faith”, finally made it into a UFO album with vocals. I guess when there’s a good idea/theme it’s hard to keep it for yourself only! The album also features a very tasteful (instrumental) cover on ZZ Top’s “La Grange”


Hi Ron… it’s really great to have you on Grande Rock! You new album, “Little Brother is Watching” is captivating indeed… well-done!
R: Thank you so much!
I guess due to your many music collaborations and to Guns n Roses you pushed your own releases a bit back… Is this why there’s that 7-year hiatus between the new album and “Abnormal” or not?

Bumblefoot - Little Brother is Watching

After a 6-year hiatus and being a member on Gun n’ Roses, the guitar virtuoso Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal returns with his tenth album as Bumblefoot. This is his second release after he joined GnR, as his previous album “Abnormal” was released in the same year with “Chinese Democracy”. The eccentric, talented and creative musician, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ron throws in the idea that apart from the “big brother”, the “little brother” is also watching us all no matter where we are… it’s like a race for “who is watching whom”! The lyrics that have a humorous approach deal with life in the digital age and beyond.
