UFO, the legendary band which have been gracing the world's stages for the last 50 years, have given us more than their fair share of superb quality hard rock songs including 'Doctor, Doctor', 'Rock Bottom', 'Shoot Shoot', 'Too Hot To Handle', and 'Only You Can Rock Me'. And that was just during the Seventies!Albums such as 'Force It', 'Obsession', 'The Wild, The Willing, And The Innocent', 'Walk On Water' and 'You Are Here' are acknowledged as classics of the melodic hard rock genre, and their live masterpiece 'Strangers In The Night' regularly features at or near the top of rock music polls. UFO's history can be delineated by the guitarists who have passed through their ranks.
From the early 'Space Rock' stumblings, their astonishing development with the brilliant, mercurial Michael Schenker, the consolidation and first downfall during Paul Chapman's tenure, subsequent re-launches and crash-landings, a troubled reformation of the Schenker line-up, and the final mostly settled version with Vinnie Moore, this book explores each of the band's 23 studio albums, and, of course, 'Strangers'. Every song is analysed in detail and opinions are numerous in this passionate critique of one of Britain's best loved and most influential rock institutions
