Michael Schenker: across the great divide

Michael Schenker Always a team player, although with a penchant to put his name across, Michael Schenker became a genuine guitar hero, once his stints with UFO and SCORPIONS resulted in an experience he took to another level with MSG. But it wasn’t with this band that Michael recorded his 2011’s “Temple Of Rock” – it was a solo record.

The more surprising, then, is the news that it’s a name of Schenker’s new group now. TEMPLE OF ROCK are a quintet which include, alongside the leader, singer Doogie White, famous for his work with Ritchie Blackmore and Yngwie J. Malmsteen, the SCORPS rhythm section Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz, plus Wayne Findlay on second guitar and keyboards. And now they have an album, “Bridge The Gap,” ready for the December 2nd release. A joyful record by all accounts, its line-up gelled during recent tour, and here’s the result.
