MICHAEL SCHENKER’S TEMPLE OF ROCK CONFIRMED FOR SWEDEN ROCK
Michael Schenker was the first German hard rock superstar and remains one of the greatest guitar heroes of all time. In the 70s he released albums with the Scorpions and UFO, gaining world fame with the latter act. In 1980 he debuted with his own Michael Schenker Group, shortened MSG, fronted by singer Gary Barden. To date, MSG have released eleven studio albums, including several certified milestones in the history of melodic hard rock. This to no small extent thanks to the array of superb singers that Michael Schenker has gathered for his band over the years. Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow), Robin McAuley (ex-Survivor) and Kelly Keeling (ex-John Norum), to name but a few.
Now another legendary name has been added to the collection – on MSG’s return to SRF, they will have none other than Doogie White (ex-Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen) at the microphone. The guarantee of quality playing backing that voice is signed by three guys called Herman Rarebell (drums), Francis Bucholtz (bass) and Wayne Findlay (guitar/keyboard).
