Danny Peyronel (Keyboards / Vocals), perhaps has the greatest claim in X-UFO, as he featured alongside Phil Mogg, Michael Schenker, Andy Parker and Pete Way on the 'No Heavy Petting' and live 'On With The Action' album releases.
Anyone that has followed guitarist Laurence Archer (Stampede, Grand Slam) though, will know that the man has been a Michael Schenker inspired player for many years and he played on the 'High Stakes and Dangerous Men,' 'Lights Out In Tokyo' and 'Live TNT (Which was 'Live in Texas '79' and 'Lights Out In Tokyo' albums reissued in a double album set.), which also featured, drummer Clive Edwards (Wild Horses, Uli Roth, Pat Travers).
The X-UFO band is rounded off by the very able Rocky 'Shades' Newton (Lionheart, M.S.G.) an extremely talented bassist / vocalist and songwriter.

Status Quo movie or documentary or both, what is going on?
Well, perhaps some confusion for sure for Status Quo fans everywhere, as most of us were in the understanding - From previous statements band members have made and postings at their website - that the band were going ahead filming a documentary with producer Alexa Morris with direction from Alan G. Parker, under the working 'provisional' title of 'Hello Quo!'
Going with this flyer too ...
Now according to the UK's Daily Telegraph - Indeed ...! - they are filming in Fiji ..., a movie, apparently titled 'Bula Quo!' which takes it's name from a Fijian greeting ...
Believe me, I began to check the date of the news story in case it originated on April 1st!
The Telegraph also reports that the two main Quo members, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt will play themselves in the film, which is also due to feature Craig Fairbass - From UK soap opera Eastenders. - and Jon Lovitz (The Wedding Singer.).
It will also feature twelve of the bands songs throughout and writing and direction for the film will be from Stuart St Paul, whose previously been involved with the making of both 'Aliens' and 'Batman,' as well as music video's including Duran Duran's, 'Wild Boys.'
The full story in the Daily Telegraph can be read here:
Maybe I'm way off and the band are perhaps doing both, who knows?

(April 2012 - Hanson, MA) Over the course of the past decade, singer / songwriter, John Taglieri has made a name for himself in AOR, Americana and modern rock circles. Striking again with his ninth release, Lucky #9, Taglieri has upped the stakes dramatically with this six song EP, from the driving chorus of opening track, and first single, "Losing Me" to the mid tempo power balladry of "Without You" straight through to the acoustic driven closer, "Not Gonna Be My Life."
Co-Produced by Lee J. Turner (Darius Rucker, Jewel, Leann Rimes, Bo Bice, etc) who also handles all the keyboards on the release, This is the first release coming out of Taglieri's new Dawg Pound Studios. Aside from the keyboard parts, John once again performed every instrument on the release. Writing both alone and with co-writers in Nashville and New Jersey, the EP is full of modern rock tinged with modern country flavor. Written from the heart, the songs speak of everyday life. The songs show a new growth and maturity in both their writing and in Taglieri's production skills.
“I approached this EP a little differently,” says John. “Being my ninth release, I think I am more in tune with what I wanted to say as an artist. I wrote songs that really meant a lot to me right now in life and tried to tell stories that would connect. Using my new studio and working with Lee again was awesome as well. There was a great vibe throughout the whole recording process. I'm very proud of 'Lucky #9', and I hope people enjoy it.”
'Lucky #9' releases on April 17 through Leap Dog Music in digital format only and will be found on all of your favourite websites including iTunes, eMusic, AOL and more.
