UFO

Vocalist Phil Mogg, guitarist Mick Bolton, bassist Pete Way, and drummer Andy Parker formed the British space metal outfit UFO in 1969. Originally known as Hocus Pocus, the group, which took the name UFO in honor of a London club, debuted in 1971 with UFO 1. Both the album and its follow-up, the same year's Flying, found great success in Japan, France, and Germany, but went barely noticed in the band's native country; as a result, their third effort, 1972's Live, was released only in Japan.

In 1974, Bolton left the group; after brief trial runs with ex-Pink Fairies guitarist Larry Wallis and future Whitesnake member Bernie Marsden, former Scorpion Michael Schenker stepped in as a permanent replacement in time to record 1974's Phenomenon, which sported a harder-edged guitar sound. After 1975's Force It and 1976's No Heavy Petting brought UFO increased visibility with American audiences, keyboardist Paul Raymond joined for 1977's Lights Out. However, after 1978's Obsession, Schenker left the group, first to rejoin the Scorpions and later to form his own band. Despite the addition of guitarist Paul Chapman, the next UFO LP, No Place to Run, failed to match the success of its predecessors.

In 1982, the band released Mechanix, notching a minor U.S. hit with "Back into My Life"; later that year, Way exited to form Waysted and was replaced by ex-Eddie & the Hot Rods bassist Paul Gray. After 1983's Making Contact, UFO dissolved, only to re-form two years later for Misdemeanor; however, the album was met with little response, and they again called it quits. In 1993, the group's most popular lineup -- Mogg, Schenker, Way, Raymond, and Parker -- reunited and recorded the 1995 album Walk on Water; after a tour, the members yet again went their separate ways. Mogg and Way continued to work as Mogg/Way and released the albums Edge of the World (1997) and Chocolate Box (1999).

Schenker rejoined in 2000 along with veteran drummer Aynsley Dunbar for the two-CD Covenant, which featured one disc of new studio recordings along with one disc of live recordings. Sharks came out in 2002; then Schenker and Dunbar departed and were replaced by Vinnie Moore and Jason Bonham, respectively. This new band welcomed returning keyboardist Paul Raymond for 2004's You Are Here and 2005's live album Showtime. Bonham was the next to leave and was replaced by the band's original drummer, Andy Parker, for 2006's The Monkey Puzzle. The Visitor -- an album recorded without the participation of Pete Way due to the bassist's health problems -- followed in 2009. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

UFO had 8 album covers designed by Hipgnosis. Phenomenon, Force It,No Heavy Petting, Lights Out,Obsessio n , Strangers In The Night,No Place To Run, The Wild The Willing And The Innocent.
Pull up Hipgnosis on Wikipedia. Amazing the work they did. They gave albums real character with their artwork.
UFO Force It.Still one of the best album covers ever!
Mother Mary (Strangers) just came on. When you talk about underrated just listen to the drumming. No 4/4 here - what a beat. It almost makes me cry when I hear Def Leppard on the radio. Such crap compared to what UFO did. Just shows you what marketing can do.

UNDERRATED big time !!!
You could say I have an Obsession with this band!
UFO4LIFE!!!!
Greatest rock band of all time!!
Blasting A Self Made Man from Walk On Water. The return of Michael Schenker. This track is so good!
The only way to roll best of rock to my bro David live for it

I always feel compelled to comment whenever a UFO song comes on. I love the way the music takes me back. I realize that's somewhat of a cliché and may sound juvenile but it's true. All the good stuff that occurred when I was a kid comes back.
UFO abducted me many years ago and has never returned me. I enjoy it here. The music is so damn good I will never leave.
Why want they play phenomenom songs
Unfortunatel y UFO never got a lot of radio airplay in America, but this song too hot to handle luckily did and it got me hooked
UFO was given as an example of Music Choice's classic rock station on their Wikipedia page. I'd never heard of them until then, and I'm 29.
Wanna fall in love with UFO get strangers in the night the live album one of the best live albums ever recorded
milosdad
I've always considered Phil Mogg to be my favorite singer in rock. Very soulful,l great tone. Today, Eddie Vedder is one of my favorites and may possess better tonal qualities but I'll always choose Phil.
Saw them multiple times in 70's. Warmed up for Rush in Memphis in support of Phenomenon and absolutely blew Rush off the stage.
milosdad
Rush, Styx and UFO 1976! Phenomenal.
Saw em many x... probably best at the Mabuhay Gardens on Broadway in SF with Dokken... hard rock hotties rule!!
You have to admit it Force it was a great album cover
Faucet (Force It) That British humor!
1982..Amazin g gig at alpine valley..UFO and rainbow....
Got 2 c them in Jacksonville Florida with sticks and Ram Jam got to meet Michael Shanker un f****** real could not never remember the name of the other 2 bands Ram Jam and sticks did not exist th at night
Vinnie. Moore has done a fantastic job on guitar. It's impossible to replace Schenker but he's done very well.
kinroc
One of my favorite bands to see live. saw them in the 70's opening for Sammy Hagar!
I've got ever album this band ever recorded. Love 'em all but anybody new to them you need to own the following Phenomenon/F o r c e It/No Heavy Petting/Ligh t s Out and Obsession to experience the greatness of UFO.
LIKE THEM MUCH MORE WITH SCHENKER ON THE 6

UFO4LIFE!!!

randyweyant6
Saw um @ house of blues 1 yr ago and Phil sounded like back in the day - great !
F**KIN GREAT BAND!!!!TRAD G I C A L L Y UNDERRATED!! ! ! !
Most Under Rated Band Ever! They Absolutely Rock!
Love UFO
Get some vocal talent!
They don't have Mechanix. Shame, since The Writer is UFO's most successful hit.
The album The Visitor rocks. These guys are in their 60 s and sound better than this junk out today.
UFO is without a doubt a brilliant band. People really need to rediscover these guys and enjoy what I have been enjoying for over 30 years.
UFO; so under rated, under promoted and under appreciated in the US. AWESOME songs and guitar playing..... n o matter who it was!!!!
This song kicks azs
Love to Love is UFO s masterpiece. This song is everything they are.
Walk on Water is a great album some 20 years after their heyday. True talent never dies. UFO forever.
