sorry francis but if you do subscribe to classic rock magazine then you cannot be reading in thoroughly.ufo are mentioned more or less every month.there is always a mention of mad mikey or pete ways drinking or some quote or other from the mogg man .
as for your 40 odd year old colleagues where have they had their heads/ears for the last 30/40 odd years ?
my god we worsnhipped at the alter of ufo in the mid late 70,s here in leeds.when ever they came to play at st georges hall in bradford-which was our nearest "big"venue we were always at the front of the ticket queue on a saturday morning-way before the web-then you had to actually queue !
saw them so many times,in particular the tour for this album.we were all set to see mad mikey again and then heard on the local radio-pennine radio ,that he had left the band !!!!
wtf-who was going to play the guitar tonight ?
well it was paul chapman ex lone star(bells of berlin anyone ?),it was a very good gig,but somewhat subdued by the loss of schenker-why oh why did he leave-i know its all about the mix of rock bottom and his fall out with ron nevison and the constant jibes by mogg et al.rather odd/hard being a wayward 20 year old guitar prodigy in the mid 70,s esp. german with a bunch of absolute drunkards as band mates,who could be very cutting with their "weird" english humour.
best album-this one -no-try no heavy petting for true schenker madness.the riffs are amazing and the sound of his flying v is truly unique.my fave hard rock album ever.
