    I've never understood the fascination and acclaim that UFO seems to invoke as of late. Some decent players, One well above average guitar player, and not one song I would call great, and only a handful I would even call good, and most I would not go out of my way to even listen to and even more than that, that I would change the channel on. I am very familiar with UFO. Started Covering their stuff in bars as early as 1980. Even back then, I considered them an ok band at best and never understood the fascination that some of my bandmates and musician friends seemed to have with them. Yes, it always seemed to me that musicians were the ONLY people I have ever known, then or now, that even knew who they were, much less liked them.

    PLEASE don't take offense to this post, I mean no disrespect.

    I've never seen them as anything more than average as a band as a while, and wonder what others see as being so great with them?
    I really am curious to know?

    I do think they have a cool name though.




    Non taken. Its all good. I like "The Sweet" too and alot of people hate them. I personaly think Guns N Roses are overrated and that would be blasphemy to many. But I do like a few of their tunes. I think for me its UFO's overal sound I like and I do like the musicianship. They are a "guys" band. You would see mostly guys at a UFO concert in the days. Sort of like Rush or Blue Oyster Cult. I just like UFO's style of playing.
    I like Z Cars
    and Guitars

      Yep...musicians and the people who are REALLY in to music - like many great acts, that demographic is where they get their appreciation. Excellent band with a fantastic guitar player.

      I could name ten fantastic acts like that off the top of my head.

          It might sound 'generic' if you are 17-23...and if you know SFA.

          Strangers In The Night as well.


          They look pretty cool live...but...meh. Lots of bands are exciting live.

            listen to Mechanix and the albums they made with Paul CHapman.
            That dude is as good as Schenker in my book.

                    Although he is not as well known as Schenker, a lot of folks (me included) really like the Paul Chapman era.

                      **************** no!

                      MS was my inspiration to start playing the guitar. All the 70s Schenker is great. Scorpions Lonesome Crow is AWESOME!
                      How dare you mention Chapman in the same thread as MS?

                            If you look at the pic and look at MS he looks like a ****************ing alien.

                              Schenker was amazing.
                              Strangers in the Night is by far my fave.

                              I like Chapman too. Saw him with UFO at the Long Beach Arena. Great show.
