UFO

Vocalist Phil Mogg, guitarist Mick Bolton, bassist Pete Way, and drummer Andy Parker formed the British space metal outfit UFO in 1969. Originally known as Hocus Pocus, the group, which took the name UFO in honor of a London club, debuted in 1971 with UFO 1. Both the album and its follow-up, the same year's Flying, found great success in Japan, France, and Germany, but went barely noticed in the band's native country; as a result, their third effort, 1972's Live, was released only in Japan.

In 1974, Bolton left the group; after brief trial runs with ex-Pink Fairies guitarist Larry Wallis and future Whitesnake member Bernie Marsden, former Scorpion Michael Schenker stepped in as a permanent replacement in time to record 1974's Phenomenon, which sported a harder-edged guitar sound. After 1975's Force It and 1976's No Heavy Petting brought UFO increased visibility with American audiences, keyboardist Paul Raymond joined for 1977's Lights Out. However, after 1978's Obsession, Schenker left the group, first to rejoin the Scorpions and later to form his own band. Despite the addition of guitarist Paul Chapman, the next UFO LP, No Place to Run, failed to match the success of its predecessors.

In 1982, the band released Mechanix, notching a minor U.S. hit with "Back into My Life"; later that year, Way exited to form Waysted and was replaced by ex-Eddie & the Hot Rods bassist Paul Gray. After 1983's Making Contact, UFO dissolved, only to re-form two years later for Misdemeanor; however, the album was met with little response, and they again called it quits. In 1993, the group's most popular lineup -- Mogg, Schenker, Way, Raymond, and Parker -- reunited and recorded the 1995 album Walk on Water; after a tour, the members yet again went their separate ways. Mogg and Way continued to work as Mogg/Way and released the albums Edge of the World (1997) and Chocolate Box (1999).

Schenker rejoined in 2000 along with veteran drummer Aynsley Dunbar for the two-CD Covenant, which featured one disc of new studio recordings along with one disc of live recordings. Sharks came out in 2002; then Schenker and Dunbar departed and were replaced by Vinnie Moore and Jason Bonham, respectively. This new band welcomed returning keyboardist Paul Raymond for 2004's You Are Here and 2005's live album Showtime. Bonham was the next to leave and was replaced by the band's original drummer, Andy Parker, for 2006's The Monkey Puzzle. The Visitor -- an album recorded without the participation of Pete Way due to the bassist's health problems -- followed in 2009. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Got 2 c them in Jacksonville Florida with sticks and Ram Jam got to meet Michael Shanker un f****** real could not never remember the name of the other 2 bands Ram Jam and sticks did not exist th at night
Vinnie. Moore has done a fantastic job on guitar. It's impossible to replace Schenker but he's done very well.

One of my favorite bands to see live. saw them in the 70's opening for Sammy Hagar!
I've got ever album this band ever recorded. Love 'em all but anybody new to them you need to own the following Phenomenon/F o r c e It/No Heavy Petting/Ligh t s Out and Obsession to experience the greatness of UFO.
LIKE THEM MUCH MORE WITH SCHENKER ON THE 6

Saw um @ house of blues 1 yr ago and Phil sounded like back in the day - great !
F**KIN GREAT BAND!!!!TRAD G I C A L L Y UNDERRATED!! ! ! !
Most Under Rated Band Ever! They Absolutely Rock!
Love UFO
Get some vocal talent!
They don't have Mechanix. Shame, since The Writer is UFO's most successful hit.
The album The Visitor rocks. These guys are in their 60 s and sound better than this junk out today.
UFO is without a doubt a brilliant band. People really need to rediscover these guys and enjoy what I have been enjoying for over 30 years.
UFO; so under rated, under promoted and under appreciated in the US. AWESOME songs and guitar playing..... n o matter who it was!!!!
This song kicks azs
Love to Love is UFO s masterpiece. This song is everything they are.
Walk on Water is a great album some 20 years after their heyday. True talent never dies. UFO forever.
Legendary!!!
One of the best concerts ever. UFO an d Rush Santa Monica Civic 77. Then I got to open for them on the You Are Here tour in SF in 2005. Jason Bonham on drums. Got to hang with Phil Mogg backstage for a minute.AMAZI N G !

The guitar solo on Dance Your Life Away blows me away.

TRUE STORY. Stanley Theater Pittsburgh 1978. Old venue with chandeliers and balconies. Halfway through the first set, a piece of plaster the size of the hood on a Buick Electra falls from the ceiling and shatters in a million pieces on the stage three feet from Schenker. The band never missed a beat.
stranger in the night is one of the best live albums ever!
All the metal genres you'll need right here.
Saw UFO a couple of years ago in a small club in San Diego. They blew the roof off the place!
Nice remix.
Very cool, I love it<3
absolutely beautiful
Favorite hard rock band ever
Black ninja google puma punku.
Heard of this band for years but had never heard them until listening to siriusxm on ozzys station... wow, i dont know where i was in the 70s n 80's but i really missed out on them....oh, well, i got to discover them and enjoy just as a youngster again...

1st memory of this raw fabulous band is stopping my bicycle on a hot summer afternoon in Joliet, IL. while listening to a blaring speaker set up in an open, second floor bed room window ; screaming out Lights Out in London, sounds simply but I will never forget it! Great era, great band!!!
hadn't listened to them for years. popped ufo on the search page and wow. back in the groove again. as said before, i'd love to hear that early stuff that no one has heard. even they're great stuff is barely popular, so let's hear it!
Never heard of them until recently.
