I’ve been sharing videos by Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website. Pete loves hard rock, heavy metal and prog rock and he’s very keen on UFO.
This is a band who should have had much more success in the 1970s than they did. Of course, they have recorded one of the all time classic live albums in the form of Strangers in the Night.
Here is what Pete thinks.
