Paul Raymond, UFO

It would be easy for me to say, like Rod Stewart on Parkinson recently that I remember nothing about the seventies, however I do, even though I'm sure I was just as drunk as he was!!! I do remember Aylesbury Friars, only because this was the gig that Ron Nevison (producer of our most successful records) came to see us play live in 1976. Unfortunately I don't have any photos to support this, but we were going through our chiffon and spandex era - very glam, I think I was wearing a silver studded suit, a la Keith Richard, and Pete was in his stripes (what else - some things never change!)

what happened next
UFO with Mogg, Parker and Raymond continue to record and tour as at 2012. Michael Schenker eft UFO in 1978 to form The Michael Schenker Group who still play as at 2012. Schenker rejoined UFO briefly in 1995.

Like UFO, Marseille are still active with Neil Buchanan still in the band.
