everyone who came out! Rob.
Some first-hand news from Rob De Luca concerning OF EARTH and UFO:
Hello everyone, it's been a while. First I want to thank all UFO fans in Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Poland and last but not least Lithuania. You're amazing!
Sold out shows and great crowds! It was a pleasure to play for you. We're honored by the distances some traveled to see us.

Regarding last night's "show", Spread Eagle sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that
was caused to our fans by this bogus booker/promoter.
We were also inconvenienced and are always learning who to steer clear from in this business.
Months ago we confirmed a Spread Eagle 12 a.m. Stone Pony co-headlining slot, via emails
and phone conversations with Scotti D. read more...
Japan Earthquake / Tsunami Benefit Tuesday, April 12 @ The Local 269.
Many of us have family and friends in or from Japan affected by the recent events.
National and international performers will provide a great nite of music,
well worth the donation. Please come and support this vital cause. Lets do what we can. Thanks!
Rob De Luca uses the short break that Spread Eagle takes before touring again to give
OF EARTH another boost. Reinforced with Spread Eagle drummer Rik De Luca
(Mike May left in 2010) the boys are in a creative rush with 7 songs ready in demo quality.
It's too early to tell when the new album will be released
but the magic word SOON is applicable.
Spread Eagle disbanded in 1995. Tommi Gallo had already been in and out of the band since 1992.
In the early 2000's vocalist Ray West suggested starting Spread Eagle again. It took him some time to convince bassist Rob De Luca to do so. In 2006 their self titled debut albut was reissued by Lovember Records.
Rob De Luca sent an open letter to his fans. He is currently touring with
Sebastian Bach as direct support for Guns N' Roses. He is talking about his time on the road with Sebastian Bach and UFO
and his new album available for FREE.
