Vincent "Vinnie" Moore is an American guitarist and a member of the English hard rock band UFO. Vinnie Moore is one of the most influential and important guitarists to emerge from the virtuoso boom in the mid to late eighties.
Once Vinnie Moore picked up his first guitar (a Kay) at the age of 12, he became, as he describes it, a “guitar freak.” His earliest influences included - among others - Jeff Beck, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Queen.
As well as songwriting and playing, Vinnie is dedicated to teaching. He’s conducted guitar clinics around the world, and has released two instructional videos on the HotLicks® label. Vinnie joins his fans at clinics worldwide for Engl Amplification and Dean Guitars.
