Vinnie Moore

Vinnie Moore is indeed a guitarist from the United States who is a member of the UFO hard rock band from the United Kingdom. Moore is regarded as among the most influential and significant guitarists to emerge from the virtuoso craze of the mid-to-late 1980s.

Moore was born just a few miles away from fellow musician George Thorogood in New Castle, Delaware (and The Delaware Destroyers). After obtaining a guitar as a Christmas present at the age of 12, he began his professional career. “I received my first guitar for Christmas when I was like 12, essentially simply because I saw a picture of such a guitar in a brochure, a JCPenney’s catalogue,” Moore said in a 2018 interview.

‘Hey, it looks really cool,’ I thought. ‘I’d like that.’ That was my motive at the time, and I received it for Christmas and didn’t do anything with it. Then I began taking classes for the next year. Then I became really infatuated with it.”   Moore was asked who his first teachers were over the same interview, and he said, “Mary Biddle was my first teacher, as well as I studied alongside her for a year, simply taking some basic lessons there at a local music store. I had progressed after about a year, and she recommended another man named Nick Bucci, who had been a terrific player in my neighbourhood.

He was studying jazz guitar alongside Pat Martino and also was a rock guitarist, and he basically learned a great deal of stuff: theory, exercises, as well as all kinds of things to help me improve as a player and musician.” Moore played clubs and bars until Shrapnel producer Mike Varney spotted him through a sample and biography Moore sent to Guitar Player’s Spotlight feature.

In 1985, his relationship with Varney landed him a role inside a Pepsi commercial. Moore then recorded Mind’s Eye (1986), his debut solo album, which was published on Shrapnel Records and included Tony MacAlpine on keyboards.
