Showtime
Review by Greg Olma
This is a difficult CD to review. When a band comes up with an album that defines their career, no matter how good the subsequent releases are, they are always compared to that album.

The Salentino Cuts
Review by Gary Hill

The whole "do an album of covers" thing is cool, but perhaps a bit overdone. Here UFO gets into the trend.

Walk On Water
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a very strong reunion for the quintessential lineup of this classic hard rock/metal band who have always taken that genre in a more art rock directions. This album is really one of the stronger albums this band has ever done, and if there is any justice in the world, will take them to new heights.

Review by Gary Hill

Memories abound here for this reviewer!  In 1980 I had seen a couple outdoor concerts, but never an indoor one. UFO was the first indoor show I saw.

Review by Greg Olma
This DVD is the visual counterpart to the Showtime CD with the main concert containing the same songs in the same running order. That being said, it is a great concert to view.

UFO - The Story Of – Too Hot To Handle DVD
Review by Greg Olma
Let me start by saying that I really like this DVD.  I had this back in the day when it was available on VHS,  but it is always better to have the crystal clear picture of a DVD.

UFO - Live in Chicago, July 2005
Review by Greg Olma
There was a UFO that landed in Chicago on a hot July evening. No, not the kind that transport little green men but the English rock institution.

UFO - Live in San Antonio, Texas, October 2019
Review by Greg Olma

It had to happen someday but it’s still sad.  UFO is making the last round of touring before Phil Mogg hangs up his mic stand for good.

This CD started off as a Phil Mogg solo album but for whatever reason, he decided to make it a band effort. Joining Phil on this release is Jeff Kollman, who played guitar on the last Mogg/Way album Chocolate Box.

Michael Schenker - Fest: Live Tokyo International Forum Hall A DVD
Review by G. W. Hill
One could say that there are enough Michael Schenker live videos out there, why do we need another? Well, this one is really a chronicle of a special event, meaning that if some are extraneous, this is not.

Michael Schenker - Group - Live in Rosemont, Illinois August 2010
Review by Greg Olma

It’s been a quite a while since Michael Schenker and his band of metal merchants played a support slot here in the Chicago-land area but I guess filling in the “special guest” slot on the Scorpions farewell tour was too good to pass up.

Scorpions - Love Drive
Review by Gary Hill

I know that for many people the post Uli Jon Roth era of Scorpions is the best. Personally, I've always preferred the earlier stuff.

Michael Schenker - Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock - On a Mission: Live in Madrid DVD
Review by Greg Olma

It is no great secret that I am a Michael Schenker super fan but I can be critical of his output when I feel that he is not playing up to his potential.

Red Zone Rider - Red Zone Rider
Review by G. W. Hill

I suppose these guys are pretty much guaranteed to have a fan base, even before anyone heard them. That’s because the lineup is legendary. The band is made up of Vinnie Moore (guitar) (UFO), Kelly Keeling (vocals and bass) (Michael Schenker Group, King Kobra) and Scot Coogan (drums and vocals) (Lita Ford, Ace Frehley). The question is, how is the music? Honestly, this is a great album. It’s nothing Earth shattering in terms of originality, but the hard rocking, classic sound is done extremely well. If you like 1970s styled hard rock, you should love this.
