About 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. In 1987, Shrapnel released Vinnie's breakout album, Mind's Eye. Vinnie was quickly heralded "best new talent" in Guitar Player, Guitar, and Guitar World magazines, and Mind's Eye sold more than 100,000 copies. In 1988, Squawk/Polygram released Vinnie's second effort (and major label debut) Time Odyssey. His third release was Meltdown, in 1991 (on Relativity/Epic Records); the song Meltdown received national radio airplay on both album-oriented rock (AOR) and hard rock formats. In 1996, Mayhem Records released Out of Nowhere, with Brian Tichy (Billy Idol) on drums and Dorian Heartsong (Powerman 5000) on bass. On The Maze (in 1999), Vinnie was joined by former MSG drummer Shane Gaalaas, bassist Dave LaRue (The Dregs and The Steve Morse Band) and renowned master musician Tony MacAlpine on keyboards. Other albums followed: Live (in 2000), with Shane Gaalaas (drums), Barry Sparks on bass, and Wayne Findlay on keyboards, and Defying Gravity in 2001 with Dave LaRue (bass), Steve Smithon drums, and David Rosenthal on Keyboards. As a performer, Vinnie Moore's resume is impressive. A member of Alice Cooper's band, he toured the U.S. on the Operation Rock'N'Roll tour, and also performed on Alice's album Hey Stoopid. Vinnie also toured Japan as a member of the T.M. Stevens' band, which included Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic) on keyboards, Wil Calhoun (Living Color) on drums, and Al Pitrelli (Megadeth) on guitar. In 2003, Vinnie joined the legendary group UFO (Phil Mogg, vocals; Pete Way, bass; Jason Bonham, drums; Paul Raymond, keyboards). Vinnie's latest release Soul Shifter (2019) features Rudy Sarzo, Jordan Rudess, Richie Monica, Randy McStine, Michael Bean, John Cassidy, and John Pessoni. "AmpliTube 5 has been a valuable tool in my studio for writing and recording new music. So many great amp and F/X tones quickly accessible right under your fingertips. I love the interface and how simple it is to choose presets or the ability to create your own. I really loved making mine and hope they inspire someone to create their own on some new music." -Vinnie Moore
