When UFO released their first live album, the poetically named ‘Strangers in the Night,’ in January 1979, they surely couldn’t have guessed it would stand the test of time as one of history’s greatest concert documents — let alone mark the apex of their entire career.
Over 40 years on, UFO remain one of hard rock's most treasured, and yet most under appreciated bands ever. Though the band has seen its share of personnel changes over the years, founding drummer Andy Parker and original singer Phil Mogg are clearly in it for the long haul. Thursday night at the Tangier in Akron, Ohio, neither one showed any real signs of wear and tear.
British hard rock legends UFO are getting ready to issue their 21st album, but they seem to be having some debate over its title. The band previously had announced that the long-awaited disc would be called 'Last of the Boneriders,' but now the new release shall be known as 'Seven Deadly.' Whatever deep meaning either title has, we aren't quite sure, but it does seem 'Seven Deadly' has more of a rock 'n' roll edge to it.
Guitar heroes Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker and Leslie West will combine forces in a tour titled, appropriately enough, 3 Guitar Heroes. All three guitarists will play sets, and the concerts will end with them jamming together.
