I'll bet he had stories to tell....

Mario Maglieri, ‘King of the Sunset Strip,’ Dies

Mario Maglieri, who owned three famous clubs on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip, the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Roxy Theatre and the Whisky a Go Go, has died. He was 93.

The Whisky posted the news on its Facebook page, with a picture of the club’s marquee announcing his death and writing, “It’s a sad day for Rock n’ Roll… Rest in peace Mario Maglieri! You will always be the King of the Sunset Strip!!!”

In case you're unfamiliar with Adrenaline Mob - this is from back when Portnoy was drumming for them.

Damn....I'm tempted....if this was during Spring Training I'd do a 2 for 1.

$130 for 10-12 bands is pretty reasonable.

Goose, I just got my ticket for the show at Freedom Hill. Unbelievable how fucking expensive it was, but no way I could miss Slayer's last tour. Thinking about it now, the last time I saw Slayer and Lamb of God they were touring together. 2006 I believe.

That'll be a great show.

I see now that Skynyrd is calling it a day too. Rossington is the original member left and he's been sick the last couple years so the time is probably right.

Nashville, Tenn. – Southern rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd will kick off their final tour May 4 in West Palm Beach, Florida, more than 40 years after the band’s debut album was released.

The Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Famers announced Thursday that the farewell tour will also feature Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Bad Company, the Marshall Tucker Band and 38 Special.

Heck, I can't believe Skynyrd made it as long as they did. Got to see them once, but besides Rossington, Billy Powell was the only other original member.

Individual L.P. Most would say Lights Out

But album is easily Strangers in the Night. Often makes Top 100 lists for live albums and now and then a top 10. Slash, Mike McCready, Kirk Hammett and many more reference that disc as one of their big influences. The Schenker solo on Rock Bottom is worth the price of admission. That album was recorded on the Lights Out tour.

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/ufo-albums-ranked/ is pretty close although I like Walk on Water more than they do.

Reviews of SITN Here:

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/ufo/strangers-in-the-night/

The English Hard rock band UFO was at the top in 1978. The band was always on the road for almost 10 years now and they transformed from an opening act into an arena filling headliner. Their last five studio LPs “Lights Out”, “Phenomenon”, “No Heavy Petting”, “Force It” and “Obsession” are all considered as classic LPs of the Melodic Hard Rock Genre. It was about time to record a live album. It wasn’t their first album but the 1972 release “Live” was recorded during the Space Rock, Pre-Schenker era of the band.
“Strangers in the Night” was recoded in Chicago during different performances and released in January of 1979.
Fans and critics loved the album and the album is nowadays mentioned in the same breath as other classic live albums like Iron Maidens “Live After Death”, “Live and Dangerous” by Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple’s “Made in Japan” or “All the World’s a Stage” by the Canadian Prog Trio Rush.
It doesn’t matter if you ask Slash, Def Leppard, Metallica or Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris; All of them consider “Strangers in the Night” as a fantastic live recording and a major influence.

Back in 1978 UFO consisted of the guitar god Michael Schenker, bassist Pete Way, singer Phil Mogg, drummer Andy Parker and keyboarded Paul Raymond; without a doubt the ultimate UFO line up.
The iconic double LP features 13 songs from the 5 previous studio LPs, which I mentioned earlier. The picked songs and the performance are great and also the live feeling is captured really well.

The highlight of this live album is the 11-minute epic “Rock Bottom”, which features a fantastic guitar performance by the young Michael Schenker. Other highlights are the hymns “Doctor Doctor, “Only You Can Rock Me”, “Lights Out”, “Too Hot to handle” or “Let It Roll”. Also the slower melancholic songs like the 7-minute epic “Love to Love” or “I’m a Loser” are highlights and a nice contrast to all the hard rocking songs. But all of the 13 songs are great.
The album hit the top 10 in the UK album charts and also charted in the States, which made “Strangers in the Night” one of the best selling UFO albums of all time.

This iconic release was unfortunately also the end of this fantastic UFO line-up. Michael Schenker was not satisfied with his own performance on “Rock Bottom” and wanted to add overdubs in the studio but the producer and the rest of the band didn’t like the idea of changing songs in the studio. Schenker left the band before the album even was released and so the golden era of UFO ended.
Schenker’s reaction is of course questionable since his performance on the whole album and especially on “Rock Bottom” couldn’t be any better, at least in my opinion.

Thanks Rock Bottom is the tune that caught my attention. Can’t believe I never heard that song before. Tried to listen to a few clips on YouTube to dive a little deeper into their work and I didn’t find anything else I liked as much. I’m going to give those albums a listen today.

Try Strangers, my UFO playlist is Strangers in it's entirety +
Venus/SelfMadeMan/DarkerDays off Walk on Water
Fighting Man off Sharks
Try Me off Lights Out - a ballad - review below.
One more for the Rodeo off Obsession
We Belong to the Night off Mechanix
Blinded by a Lie off Making Contact
Running up the Highway off High Stakes and Dangerous Men.

As good as he is on guitar none of the Vinnie Moore albums have really struck me. I probably listen to Strangers way too much but along with a few other live albums it's sort of the sound track of my life.

Phil's mournful love ballad......


I love this review of Try Me....

Death by Power Ballad: UFO, “Try Me” MAY 26, 2009

One of the great eccentrics (and notorious drinkers) in rock, Michael Schenker also served in one of the great hard rock bands of the mid- and late 70s. The Schenker/Phil Mogg/Pete Way/Andy Parker nexus that powered UFO in this period produced a handful of classic albums, including the scorching, varied Lights Out (1977). Mogg is an oft-overlooked voice in this period who, at his best, could match Paul Rodgers and Lou Gramm in strength, sleaze, and swagger.

Don’t believe me? Check out Click to listen“Too Hot to Handle,” the lead cut from Lights Out. To these ears, that chorus is easily the equal of “Baby I’m a bad man” or “I’m hot blooded / Check it and see” in sheer potency and sexual bluster. And that shit was important in 1977, dawg. I remember how the girls went nuts when little Eddie Blevins sang “Cat Scratch Fever” during second grade recess. Never forgot it.

Back to Michael Schenker. He was a Scorpion at 15 (older, mustachioed bro Rudolph is still at it) and hooked up with Mogg, Way, and Parker at 18 for a four-year run of arena tours, smokin’ records, and hard partying. While Schenker developed the latter into a debilitating affliction, for a while there he was a monster riffmaster and soloist extraordinaire. Except for this one little track …

While UFO incorporated power balladry into their records before and after 1977, the sheer grandiosity of Click to listen“Try Me” sets it apart from the others. Imagine your basic hard rock fan dropping the needle on Lights Out for the first time. Side one begins with “Too Hot to Handle” and segues into a pleasant little ditty called “Just Another Suicide.” Then, the third song begins — with a lone grand piano playing an ostentatious, semi-classical passage, cut from a similar cord as Barry Manilow’s hits of the period. The listener shudders, drops his bong, thinks he’s Fred Sanford having “the big one.”

And then he hears Phil Mogg’s voice cutting in front of a repeated piano arpeggio, and he relaxes a bit. Mogg’s got woman troubles, and the listener can relate to that (who can’t?). “Tell me why we’re never more than strangers,” Mogg pleads. “Tell me why you never let it show.” What she’s not showing isn’t clear—skin, affection, whatever—but it is clear from the vocal that Mogg is saddened by her withholding. His sadness is underscored by what sounds like a cello, which is not rockin’ under normal circumstances, but it’s UF-friggin’-O—it’s gotta be rockin’, right?

Then the chorus hits and a full string ensemble flutters in—we’re back in Manilowland. Except for that voice—the grand orchestral thing is matched in power by Mogg’s plea:

Try me, take me for a little while
Before it’s over and you leave me with just a smile

Oh, okay—he’s bangin’ the chick and she’s gonna split right afterward. We are in a UFO song, after all. The listener feels relief.

The song slides back into another brief verse and string-laden chorus, and the listener realizes, “Hey, I haven’t heard any guitar yet. Where the hell is Schenker?” The answer is, of course, after the second chorus. It’s a subdued solo—no distortion, almost completely clean sound, no bent notes or fast fingerwork, just a slow variation of the melody, with cello and string accompaniment. Then the guitar is doubled, the violins flourish behind it, and the listener says to himself, “Hey, I still haven’t heard any guitar yet. Where the hell is Schenker?”

At 3:43, Schenker remembers he has a distortion pedal, the drums kick in, and — well, not much happens for the first few seconds, just more of the sleepy, single-note figure that’s lulled the listener for the previous few seconds. Then, out of nowhere, at 4:00 Dr. Schenkerstein lets the monster loose, ripping into a series of bluesy licks and high-neck runs, and the little neon “Guitar God Present” sign above his head suddenly flickers on. It lasts approximately 40 seconds before the song ends.

Schenker would get better at this—“Looking Out for No. 1” from UFO’s next record, Obsession, is primo, and he actually had a hit with the McAuley Schenker Group’s “Anytime” (more about that next time). Even with the restrained soloing, for pure over-the-top splendor, “Try Me” certainly makes a strong case for itself in the power ballad pantheon.

I've never considered AC/DC "metal" - I've always put them into the "hard rock" category. However, yesterday was the anniversary of Bon Scott's death.

also, today is the anniversary of the nightclub fire that killed 100 people during the Great White show. I've been in some jam-packed rock clubs where people are basically stuck together from their shared sweat.. that must've been horrifying.

SITN is definitely a step in the right direction, I was looking for more guitar driven and this is it. I could do without the piano, I think these guys are at their best when it is guitar driven.

Individual L.P. Most would say Lights Out

But album is easily Strangers in the Night.  Often makes Top 100 lists for live albums and now and then a top 10.  Slash, Mike McCready, Kirk Hammett and many more reference that disc as one of their big influences.  The Schenker solo on Rock  Bottom is worth the price of admission.  That album was recorded on the Lights Out tour.

Given time you should explore some of his MSG work.   He's touring right now with all of his former singers (3) so 4 singers total doing a show spanning his entire career.  He also wrote a couple of familiar Scorpions songs from his time in that band.

I'll give you an idea of how respected this rather obscure guitarist is.....Mike McCready from Pearl Jam has a UFO tribute band that he does shows with so he can play Schenker material.   Kirk Hammett from Metallica paid his own way to NYC to be on That Metal Show because Eddie Trunk promised him a jam session with Schenker.
