Esteemed author Neil Daniels has made a living from tracing the histories and chronologies of some of rock's most important bands. This time around he directs his estimable journalist skills at unraveling the enigmatic knot of talent that was UFO. This English band--vocalist Phil Mogg, bassist Pete Way, drummer Andy Parker, and variously guitarists Mick Bolton, Michael Schenker and recently Vinnie Moore--left a heavy footprint on everyone from Metallica to Pearl Jam. In this tremendously well-researched narrative, Daniels explains why.

UFO was best known for the hits like "Doctor Doctor," "Love to Love" and "Lights Out," but Daniels' terrific history uncovers so much more, including the virtuoso abilities of members like Schenker and Moore and the deeper cuts on the albums that were far more than simply blues-based riffs. The author has dug deep--one of the hallmarks of his inventive canon of books--to translate UFO's mythology and has done so by an extensive collection of firsthand interviews with band members, associates, fans and hired help.

UFO has never received the critical and mainstream plaudits bands like Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Queen have garnered. If you've ever wondered why, simply buy this book and you'll understand everything you need to know.
