According to band manager Nigel Hart, 2011 saw the beginning of a great new classic rock band formed from the remains of a host of other great bands.
That band is X-UFO. You can listen to them live in the link below.
These guys have played with some of the biggest names in rock history and are now working together to bring to life some true classic tracks with a playing pedigree that most can only dream of.
The band features card-carrying UFO members Laurence Archer, Danny Peyronel and Clive Edwards, with Rocky Newton, from UFO spin-off MSG.
Laurence (Guitar & Vocals), also played with Phil Lynott’s Grandslam, Stampede and Tarzen;
Danny (Lead Vocals), the original UFO keyboardsman/vocalist, with the Heavy Metal Kids and Tarzen;
Clive (drums), with Wild Horses, Pat Travers, Uli Jon Roth andLionheart and
Rocky (Bass & Vocals), with the Michael Schenker Group, Royal Blood (w/Alex Masi) and Lionheart.
Between them, these boys’ track records range from writing hits for UFO, Thin Lizzy, MSG, Meatloaf and even David Gilmour, to singing vocal harmonies on Def Leppard’s mega-classics “Pyromania” and “Hysteria”. The bands’ pedigree is in no doubt and as for the show you can expect some great classics based around the UFO album “Lights Out In Tokyo” and “No Heavy Petting” and spanning the ultra-classic UFO years.
The band are fired up and ready to go, so prepare yourselves for a cracker of a show with X-UFO!
X-UFO recently played sets at both the Aero Rock Festival in Bulgaria and at the Hard Rock Hell Festival inIbiza as well as a sold out show in Milano a few weekends ago and are just about to release a new Live CD, recorded in Hannover, Germany with legendary producer, Steve Mann, which will be available very soon. This includes blistering new recordings of UFO classics Lights Out, Only You Can Rock Me, Rock Bottom, Doctor Doctor and more!
