Vinnie Moore

Vinnie Moore is one of the most influencial and important guitarists to emerge out of the virtuoso boom in the mid to late eighties. Boasting six studio albums as of 2001, he is one of the most recognizable artists on the Shrapnel record label.



Beginning his career at the tender age of 12, Moore played clubs and bars until Shrapnel big wig Mike Varney discovered him through a magazine article. His connection with Varney led to a Pepsi commercial in 1985, which gave him enough recognition to record his first solo album, Minds Eye. His debut led to several awards from guitar magazines and sold over 100,000 copies, bringing him directly into the spotlight of the guitar world.



The virtuoso craze of the late eighties led to more well received releases on Shrapnel, and soon he began to perform with other bands in the hard rock scene. He joined Alice Cooper's band for a tour and the Hey Stoopid album, and released two very popular instructional videos on playing guitar.



He secured a tour with Rush for his solo material, then turned around and had a guitar clinic tour that spanned several continents. His dedication to teaching his craft has brought him much praise in musician's circles. Although the nineties saw a decline in the popularity of solo guitar music, Moore survived the downward trend due to his popular guitar clinics and quality guitar playing.



Standing tall with fellow guitar heroes Al DiMeola and Joe Satriani, Vinnie Moore has enjoyed a successful working relationship with Shrapnel records that has continued past the nineties into the next century. Despite never cracking the mainstream, Moore still has enjoyed a long and creatively satisfying career in the world of instrumental guitar. ~ Bradley Torreano, Rovi

Now lead guitarist for English hard rock band UFO, slip that in your bio Pandora
Doni you forgot Angel Vivaldi.
He's in UFO now I thought.
ANOTHER OVERLOOKED TALENTED ARTIST LIKE HIS INFLUENCE KANSAS. HE IS A GIFTED CONCISE GUITAREST AND GREAT COMPOSER WITH VERSATILITY IN GENRES.
One of the best!
I saw Vinnie in Fresno, CA. . He actually ran back and fourth on stage while playing these lightening 32nd scales. Never missed a chop.
Vinnie Moore is the man. He and Joe S, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Michael Batio, Yngwie Malmsteen... . . . a l l at the top of their game and the best in the world at what they do. Vinnie Moore I listen to at least every other day. Constantly looking for new material from him.
A sirenical shredder who is sharp and extremely unique....
Don't forget out of nowhere my favorite album by far I have been a fan since the eighties I'm 51and still jamming out to vinnie and many others check out Greg Howe another great Andy Timmons to
Vinnie Moore is the man!!! Macalpine, Satriani, Vai, Malmsteen... . I cannot put one above the other as they are all stupendous shredders. Try Vinnie Moore's The Maze.
great player....so m e h o w eerie bio like from some ..fan lol
Gotta love Vinnie Moore.
I found Vinnie Moore about a month ago and have downloaded everything I can find that was done by this ridiculously talented shredder. He is fast, a great song writer, precise and prolific to boot!!!! Tony MacAlpine, Matthew Mills, Vitalij Kuprij, Yngwie Malmsteen, Andy Moore and, of course, Joe Satriani are all of the same ilk. All so, so talented and one cannot reach the pinnacle of virtuosity by just practicing.. . . t h i s is some sort of divine intervention at aplay!!!!

Defying Gravity is by far one of the best displays of his techniques. Saw him in Puerto Rico's Hard Rock Cafe in his prime. A cool guy overall and tremendously skilled. Check out his cover of While my Guitar Gently Weeps (a George Harrison classic) and Air on the G String (J.S. Bach)

Love Vinnie Moore! Guy has serious chops but also composes great music! Wish I could pick as cleanly as this guy!
Vinnie Moore has kicked serious A** for several years...one of my all time favorites... J A M UP!!

Vinnie has a 2009 disc - "To the Core" which is the first I've purchased and is great. Agree with many other comments that his style is more that he doesn't have one particular style. Love Satch, Vai, et al but they do tend to have a "sound" that they seem to center around. I've found Vinnie is all over the map - and in a good way. As for recommended discs? So far I'd say start with the first one you find, then keep buying from there!
This guy is really good. He reminds me of a less European Malmsteen, only I think he goes more for music that sounds good instead of just throwing his virtuosity in your face. Don't get me wrong, Malmsteen has some good sounding stuff, too, but Vinnie Moore just has a lot of really interesting, cool music.

Freakin EPIC!!!!!!!!
eginchereau
another great unknown...
Vinnie Moore is the s**t.....
I don't know what to say. i didn't think one human could be this awesome. This is nothing short of epic beast. Makes me want to pick up a guitar right now!
If you like Vinnie check out Steve Vai if you haven't already.
dpeletis
He shreds, and is a totally down to earth guy. I seen him on Time Oddessey tour, and again the past tour with UFO - which afterwards I got to talk with him for a few minutes. Great guy and the master of his craft!
