Larry Wallis - This from Andy

 

---

 

20th September 2019

Sad news that UFO's second guitarist Larry Wallis has passed

Larry officially joined UFO in January 1972, after mick Bolton announced to the band that
he would be leaving. Larry was talking to UFO late 1971 (see interview below).
Previously Larry was with Shagrat, a band that Steve Pererin Took

formed after leaving Tyrannosaurus Rex.

After UFO, Larry joined the 'Pink Fairies' and later formed Motorhead with Lemmy
.
He was in the band until they recruited their second guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke.

1972 photo: Larry with Phil, Andy and Pete - ©photo - unknown - fair use

Larry Wallis interview by Tony Rettman (June 2002)

After Bloodwyn Pig, you answered an ad in the Melody Maker that read 'Gigantic Rock Band, No Names, Needs A Guitarist. You've Got To Look Great.' Am I correct?

LW: It was all very secretive for some reason. Eventually I found out it was U.F.O. It was the winter of 1971. I toddled off to the audition. When I got there, Andy Parker (drummer for UFO) and Pete Way (bassist) were there, along with a video camera. No Phil Mogg (singer). He probably had a plumbing job that day. Now, at the time I had the full set up... the long hair... the cool hippy garb. When I came in, Pete said 'He looks like a star.' We plugged me in and the day before I heard Hendrix on the John Peel radio show and he'd whacked out something called "Drivin' South," so I just started playing my version of that. And that was that. I had never heard of UFO, but I didn't tell them that. Mark Hannau was our manager. He had just parted ways with the successful Curved Air. We thought the Curved Air pedigree was great until we figured out they must have fired him for a reason. He signed us a publishing deal for 8000 pounds, which was a respectful amount in those days. We were about to go off on a tour of Germany, so naturally we spent the money on a sound system bigger than anyone else's and a second hand Bentley. The tour ended when the German gangsters running one of the shows nicked the Bentley. Apparently Mark Hannau made them believe we were going to stay in Germany and tour for them. It was then we figured out Mark wouldn't be giving Peter Grant (Zeppelin manager) any sleepless nights.
When we got back, Chrysalis got involved and gave us a chap named Wilf Wright to look after us. They kept us busy touring Italy and these were great times. One night, I got drunk and told Phil Mogg what I really thought of him and he kicked me out. Pete and Andy were real upset, but whatcha gonna do? The roadies hated me leaving so much they dropped my amps off at my parents' house. This caused Wilf to have a meeting with me where he said the amps weren't mine and I would have to give them back. I said 'No' and Wilf pointed out it would be a great shame if the police were told anonymously that dope was kept and smoked at my parents' house. I called him a string of names that I felt suited his behavior and made an exit...

Our thoughts and prayers go with Larry's family at this difficult time.

13th April 2019

Paul Martin Raymond

(16 November 1945 – 13 April 2019)

 

 

It’s been a difficult and terribly sad weekend for everyone who has been touched by Paul through his music. My heartfelt condolences go out to all his fans, friends, band members and family. Special thoughts are with Sandra and Paul’s family at this difficult time.


Paul will be remembered primarily for his body of work with UFO of which he was very proud. Spanning an amazing 42 years over 4 stints (1976-1980, 1984-1986, 1993-1998, 2003-2019), Paul often spoke with pride about being part of the UFO family. Along the way, Paul also played and recorded with ex-UFO musicians/bands - The Michael Schenker Group, Waysted and Mogg/Way. An amazing music career spanning 55 years, starting with his own band, Plastic Penny. Paul then went on to join Chicken Shack then Savoy Brown before joining UFO. Paul’s solo work was with his own band, PRP - Paul Raymond Project, releasing his ‘HIGH DEFINITION’ album just a few months ago.


I feel blessed to have known Paul for the past 26 years, not only on a personal level but for the past 42 years as a fan of his beloved band, UFO. I’ll remember this period with great fondness and will continue to listen to the music that was so dear to Paul's heart. Sleep well my friend. x

 

Paul composed and performed live with UFO's lead guitar players over the past 42 years

Two London SHOW REVIEWS, O2 Kentish Town Forum
and Shepherd's Bush O2 Empire

Both nights reviews, feature photography from our friend, Steve Ritchie

Review and Photos from London's


UFO @ O2 Forum Kentish Town, London

Words: Geir Amundsen - Photos: Steve Ritchie

Translated from Norwegian: ...The classics came as pearls on a string - "Lights Out" naturally got massive response from the London audience, "Only You Can Rock Me" and "Too Hot To Handle" are crown examples of classic British hard 70s rock, and the actual crown jewel is According to the undersigned, the evocative epic "Love To Love" - ​​the goose skin stiffened its arms already under the unmistakable piano tree...

... Yet completely majestic - you don't know the song, so check it out immediately. They finished the set in the usual way, with a 10-minute version of "Rock Bottom" from the debut album, where Vinnie Moore got the chance to take off - and he did so to those degrees. This man takes a full guy when he's in the battle, and he was in London.. FULL REVIEW CAN BE READ HERE

Andy Parker was interviewd by NORWAY ROCK MAGAZINE and will feature in the June issue of the magazine. Will be looking out for this sometime in May.

Review and Photos from London's

IT'S LIGHTS OUT IN LONDON FOR THE LAST TIME FOR UFO

UFO: O2 Kentish Town Forum, London

Words: Andy Rawll - Pictures: Steve Ritchie

... Like all great champion fighters, Phil has timed his retirement perfectly. Prowling the stage with his customary insouciant menace, his wiry frame lean and mean, and his powerful voice still packing a punch that exudes charm and venom from the opening ironic couplet from the beloved 'Mother Mary': "Try to make some changes, really on the line". ...

...Whatever the future holds for the remaining band members and the UFO name, the legacy of the band, so well represented by tonight's set will live on in metal hearts and cowboy-booted souls for many years...

Very lucky to witness UFO last night.

When you see as many bands as we do especially bands at the end of their career, you don't always get a perfect experience. You think back to earlier years and when they sounded better with more original members and so forth.
Last night however broke the mould. UFO were phenomenal and played a set that was not only comparable to the glory years but infintely better... READ FULL REVIEW - photography by ©2019 Si Clark

Concert review and Photos - Newcastle

UFO at the O2 Academy Newcastle

Veteran rockers UFO call ‘Last Orders’ on Tyneside as part a farewell tour for lead vocalist Phil Mogg.

With a career dating back to 1969, this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the British hard rock legends. However, of equal significance is the fact that frontman Phil Mogg recently announced his intention to retire from the group following the conclusion of the band’s forthcoming touring activities.

Therefore tonight’s show in the North East of England is somewhat of a final swan song for the band’s legendary lead vocalist. Subsequently, a packed out crowd is in attendance at the O2 Academy Newcastle to participate in this celebration of 50 years of UFO. This being the band’s first appearance in the region since 2015.

A large brass bell positioned on a stack of amps at the rear of the stage rings in an almost ceremonial manner as it ushers in the start of the show. The five-piece takes to the stage to a warm Geordie welcome as they kick off the proceedings with “Mother Mary”, “We Belong To The Night” and “Run Boy Run”, which in turn forms somewhat of an impressive opening to the show.

This evening’s setlist perfectly represents the group’s vast discography and is packed to the rafters with crowd-pleasing classics. Phil Mogg intends to go out with a bang, and the band are most certainly on fire this evening and raring for the occasion.

In Vinnie Moore UFO have got a bonafide guitar shredder who lights up the stage all night long with his blistering fretwork and emotive playing. Multi-talented guitarist/keyboard player Paul Raymond is the perfect foil for Moore – the pair play off each other and harmonise with one other frequently during the course of the show. Likewise, the band’s formidable rhythm section of long-serving drummer Andy Parker and bass player Rob De Luca underpin UFO’s thunderous groove all night long...

...t’s fair to say that this evening’s UFO show was most certainly otherworldly. Tonight may well mark ‘Lights Out’ for Phil Mogg’s tenure with the group, but it goes without saying that the impact and the musical legacy that he has left behind will undoubtedly live on forever.

SHOW REVIEW from Rock City

...Let’s be honest here, I’ve seen a far few (shall we say) more heritage bands lately, and come away sometimes a little disappointed. Tonight, I’m left with the feeling that if UFO have ever sounded better, I’d have absolutely loved to have been there. The band are as tight as you like, and Mogg’s vocals are spot on. Age does not seem to have taken any toll on them at al... READ FULL REVIEW

PREVIOUS SHOW REVIEW from Leeds

UFO’s “Last Orders” tour hit Leeds. If this really is it for the band and their final tour they went out here with the proverbial bang and a fine, finer performance indeed.

A sad night for many – your reviewer included. I first saw UFO way back in 1978 and have been with them through thick, thin, drama, highs and (occasional) lows ever since. How many times have I seen them in concert over those four decades – too many to remember.

My thanks to Mr Mogg and cohorts for so much listening and watching pleasure.

Anyhoo – to the show...

SHOW REVIEW from The Waterfront Norwich

...And as the last orders bell rings out calling the band to the stage and the opening chords of Mother Mary greet the throng of faithful fans, one is reminded that they never quite hit the big time.

It certainly wasn’t for lack of killer songs, or indeed killer talent, having boasted the likes of Michael Schenker, future Whitesnake axeman Bernie Marsden, AC/DC tubthumper Simon Wright and Jason ‘son of John’ Bonham on their books.

But ever the survivalists, the group defied their self-destructive personality to continue carving out the kind of classic rock numbers we’ve all come to know and love.

Moore wrings the neck of every last guitar solo, Mogg stalks the stage like a Dickensian villain eyeballing the crowd, and on the likes of Lights Out a visibly shattered Parker pounds the skins so hard you wonder if he or the drums will explode at any moment...

PREVIOUS SHOW REVIEW / PHOTOS from Manchester

This review from RAMzine, Rock and Metalzine

Tonight at this sold out show we are blessed to see UFO on their last ever tour after fifty years in the making (1969- 2019). It’s just crazy, but all good things must come to an end. What UFO have shown tonight is that no matter what your age is, as long as you love rock then tonight we’re in paradise!...

...UFO are out of this world, honestly! Tonight’s show has been phenomenal...

...They can still give a performance as if they were in their teens. I cannot fault this show in any way whatsoever, they were on point not missing a beat, the vocals were perfect, the guitar solos were incredible and the whole atmosphere was like we stood back in time. What I think makes this more unique is that there are three long term original members Phil, Andy Parker (drums) and Paul Raymond (keyboardist, rhythm guitar). Despite Vinnie moore (lead guitarist) being in the band no more than sixteen years I must say his guitar playing is simply magical, the crowd were mesmerised by it!...

...Picture this, the crowd must have an average in the mid 50 – 60’s and they’re reacting like a bunch of teens. It was majestic as hell and just shows that rock will never die. Fifty years UFO have been going on and tonight we’re are honored to witness this show. I guess now it will be watching their live shows on the internet from here, a shame its come to an end, but their spirit will live on so long as we let it.

SHOW REVIEW - excerpt

...With “Ain’t No Baby”, “Lights Out”, and “Baby Blue” they proved to everyone there that UFO, beyond any shadow of a doubt, were as fresh a rock band now as they were 50 years ago. Tight, pounding tracks, and a perfect light hearted performance as if they had their best friends round to have a blast of a party. Phil’s vocals sounded as clear and crisp as an 18 year old (he is about to turn 71), the guitar work of Vinnie was stratospheric, Rob de Luca’s bass work was mesmerising, incredibly compelling, Paul Raymond’s rhythm guitar and keyboards were on point and, of course, Andy Parker’s drumming was so energised it could have been plugged into Ballylumford Power station to top up Belfast’s electricity needs for a week.

...The night was going to be special. That was in no doubt. UFO were going to be the best version of your favourite cake. However, there was a perfect cherry on top with the addition of Tara Lynch. This was an incredibly special night, even if it wasn’t the last time UFO would be playing in Belfast. It’s a show you could see again and again without ever getting bored. Both bands were on top of their game, delivering better than solid performances, energising the crowd beyond what you would normally expect.

If you can get to see UFO and Tara Lynch, then go. No second thoughts. You have to see them. It is, without going overboard, a fantastic experience that will have you going home fully satisfied and talking about it for days.

Assembly Concert review in Leamington Spa by Reg Richardson

A couple of days ago, I posted a series of RSR photo's taken by Reg Richardson
at The Assembly in Leamington Spa. Along with his photo's,
Reg has published a Concert Review on FRaME

Short extract:

The Last Orders Tour gets under way as Phil Mogg calls time on his position as frontman with UFO after a shade over 50 years. The band were formed in London in 1968 and 23 studio albums later bring this era to an end with Mogg’s farewell tour...

...Mother Mary, We Belong to the Night, Run Boy Run and Ain’t No Baby came and went to increasing audience vocalisation before the band got going with Only You Can Rock Me, just one of the bands anthems that were due to be played. Next came Baby Blue, Messiah of Love and Cherry before the band moved on to a series of iconic songs that flowed one after the other….

O2 Academy Concert review in Leeds by Graham Geldard

Like Reg, Graham also posted out some stunning LIVE photographs of UFO and has also
written a show review

UFO: Vinnie Moore - Phil Mogg - Rob De Luca - ©2019 IconPhoto / Graham Geldard

Who would have thought that after changing their name from Hocus Pocus to UFO in 1969 and releasing their space-rock debut, UFO 1 the year after, UFO would tread the boards for 50 years. The band have come a long way and achieved notoriety and success in equal measures since their debut release...

...Tonight’s show kicks off with “Mother Mary” in blistering style, Mogg’s vocals belying his 70 years. Most singers are seeing their vocal powers dwindling by this ripe age. Not Mogg. Phil’s voice is the centre piece of all things UFO and it never let’s him down through the 90 minute set. As good as he’s ever been. Mother Mary is swiftly followed by “We Belong To The Night” from 1982’s “Mechanix” album.

A full throttle, rocking “Lights Out” really get’s the party started. Make no mistake, this is a real celebration of 50 years of one of UK Rock’s great institutions.

“Baby Blue” showcases both the delicate side of Mogg’s delivery and the effortless power his voice holds. If anyone wasn’t feeling emotional, they were now.

This isn’t just the Phil Mogg show though. UFO are most definitely a band, with all parts contributing to this wonderful set and ensuring the legacy has lived on this long. It’s hard to believe that Vinnie Moore and Rob De Luca have now been with the band 15 years and 11 years respectively. It shows, and they’ve most definitely made those places their own. Vinnie is true to the originals but puts his own twist to them. Rob has grown massively into his role since I first saw him, maybe 10 years ago. Only You Can Rock Me showcases the band to it’s full, with founding member Andy Parker bludgeoning his kit and Paul Raymond adding the extra layers he always has.

It’s great to hear “Burn Your House Down” and “Messiah Of Love” from 2012 and 2015 respectively, reinforcing that UFO have been producing great albums to the end and these more recent gems fully deserve their place in the set. UFO are bowing out on top, this isn’t just a nostalgia ride. Phil Mogg has called it quits on UFO because he just can’t be bothered with the travelling and hotels any more. Such a shame as he clearly loves the stage as much as he ever did. As always, he could have been playing as a stand-up comedian tonight. Checking how everyone is at either side of the venue, he quips that he saw Tony Bennett do that once. Maybe he’s invested in a rocking chair for his retirement to do some Val Doonican style crooning.

Crowd favourites “Love To Love” and “Too Hot To Handle” pave the way to Rock Bottom, when Mogg once again turns comedian, joking that he could go on holiday and get himself a suntan by the time Vinnie Moore finishes the solo. A great solo it is too , once again taking Schenker’s blueprint but making it his own, with consummate ease. “Doctor Doctor” starts running down the set. There’s no bigger compliment than Iron Maiden using one of your songs for their stage entrance – the crowd’s response shows exactly why.

What better way to close the show than with “Shoot Shoot”, the first UFO record I bought. Fitting that the cowbell intro chimes last orders on the last song that UFO will ever play in Leeds.

The band leave the stage to rapturous applause and adulation. There is genuine love for these guys and many in the crowd were emotional leaving the venue, not quite believing this will be the last time they see them live after following them for so many years. UFO may be calling time on their illustrious career but this is absolutely going out in style, with band and crowd loving every minute. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket, grab one quick because most venues are either sold out or on the verge of selling out – UK to April, Europe to August, U.S.A. to November. UFO – forever in our hearts and out of our speakers.

A View From The Back Of The Room: UFO (Live Review By Paul H)

UFO - Last Orders Tour, O2 Academy, Bristol & The Tramshed, Cardiff

...Full marks as well to Mogg for his “lights out in Cardiff” line, causing much appreciation from the packed Welsh crowd. Love To Love from Lights Out, Only You Can Rock Me and a massive Too Hot To Handle caused grown men to lose it at both venues before Rock Bottom, complete with Moore’s masterful solo which drew sharp intakes of breath at the sheer sublime quality brought the main set to an end. With the band a little sharper and into their stride after a few dates, the Cardiff date just edged it in terms of atmosphere and performance but there wasn’t much to separate each evening. The inevitable Doctor Doctor and Shoot Shoot brought two fantastic evenings to an end. Getting what is likely to be my final fill of one of my all-time favourite bands was an absolute joy, a band whose name should be treasured in the halls of Great British classic hard rock for all time.

third and final review for today, this from Cardiff

UFO / TARA LYNCH | LIVE REVIEW

Tramshed, Cardiff, Tue 12 Mar

Veteran hard rock outfit UFO seamlessly beckoned the attention of a loyal fanbase on a weatherbeaten Tuesday night. As part of their 50th anniversary tour – possibly their final one – this sold-out show promised to deliver the influential live wire antics for which the band are revered... 

...Paul Raymond, a revolving fixture of the band throughout their history, exhibited his versatility as a musician, adroitly flitting between keys and rhythm section with a finesse that betrayed his mainstay status during the course of the last four decades. Vinnie Moore lent renewed vitality to the 1977 classic Love To Love, replete with richly-rendered solos, showcasing equally thunderous guitar dexterity on Too Hot To Handle. Chants of the band’s name reverberated throughout the room, anticipating an encore that took the form of signature tracks Doctor Doctor and Shoot Shoot. The latter of which saw Moore, donning a black hat and earning Santana jibes from Mogg, proceeding to tear through with eviscerating technical precision. A two-hour set that emphasised the five-piece’s proto-metal legacy and undimmed durability.
