Michael Schenker - Bridge The Gap



Award winning guitar legend Michael Schenker will release a new studio album entitled "Bridge The Gap" on Friday, November 22nd. released byin-akustik, the album features Schenker's Temple of Rock band which consists of ex-Scorpions drummer Herman Rarebell and bassist Francis Buchholz, vocalist Doogie White (ex-Rainbow) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenalin fuelled melodic rock 'n' roll songs that showcase Schenker's distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rythym section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker, Rarebell
and Buchholz appeared on the same album since the Scorpions' 1979 Lovedrive.

Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song and stamps his enthusiatic personality with every note and phrase. Wayne Findlay adds another dimension to the dynamic, classic Schenker sound with his Dean 7 string guitar and keyboard orchestrations.

Bridge The Gap is a thunderous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energized guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by top drawer musicians.

The album was recorded from January through March 2013 at Kidroom Studios in Germany and was produced by Michael Schenker and Michael Voss, and engineered by Michael Voss.

Michael Schenker Personal VIP Package


Michael Schenker Personal VIP Package

Michael is proud to announce a very special opportunity to his fans. We will be releasing Michael Schenker’s Personal VIP package shortly.

This package will include an unreleased - never heard before - CD which features a recording Michael Schenker made in 1979. Michael plays guitar and bass on all tracks, he even sings on some of the tracks. This makes it a very unique and special recording. Michael says this about it.

“It’s a 14 track Demo I wrote and recorded by myself in the Dieter Dirks’(Scorpions Producer)mobile studio whilst Rory Gallagher and the Scorpions were recording next door.

It was going to be material for my first Solo Album. There’s some Instrumentals and I even sing on a few. Ringo Funk helped out by playing drums on some tracks. He was the drummer in a famous German Band at the time called Atlantis.

I recorded this after I left the Scorpions Lovedrive Tour in ‘79. Some of this material I rehearsed later with Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton from Aerosmith. Some of it I rehearsed with Gary Barden, Billy Sheehan (Bass from Mr. Big) and Denny Carmassi (Drums from Montrose).”

As part of this, very personal package, a once in a lifetime chance to have your name printed on Michael's new guitar model is also available. This is strictly limited to 1000 names. Michael Schenker’s new Dean Signature model and will be available to purchase once created. This has not been done before and will never be repeated again!

Michael Schenker's 'Howler' technique is described on an instructional DVD along with the tool he uses to create the distinctive sound.

This package will also contain a box of goodies such as a unique T-shirt only available with this package.
