IMPORTANT NEWS! Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock 2014.09.01

IMPORTANT NEWS: Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock

Sometime between 6pm Friday 29th Aug and 11 am Sunday 31st August 2014 at "Kidroom Studios" in Greven, Germany, where MICHAEL SCHENKER is recording the new TEMPLE OF ROCK album "Spirit on a Mission", thieves broke in and stole a number of Michael Voss's and a number of Michael Schenker's Dean Flying V guitars.

At the moment the full extent of what has been stolen is being assessed and the crime scene fingerprinted. However Schenker's brand new Chrome V is one of the guitars that has been taken.

A source close to the band said, "The Dean Chrome V is a one off, made for Michael to his own specifications. There is not another like it, so it will be hard to sell."

German police are examining evidence and the studio for fingerprints / DNA evidence to help catch the criminals.

There will be more details once the extent of the damage and a thorough inventory has been taken of the crime scene.

Anyone with any relevant information is asked to contact:
Greven Police Station on +49 2571 9280

David Landing to Front MSG Fall Tour 2012.09.21


Vocalist David Van Landing will front Michael Schenker's band on the upcoming North American tour, which is scheduled to kick off on October 3 in Modesto, California. David will be stepping in for Robin McAuley, who was originally slated to take part in the trek after recently reuniting with Schenker for their first full tour together in almost 20 years.

Van Landing, who has previously done three tours with MSG and had a short stint with CRIMSON GLORY, said: "I am just looking forward to getting out on the road again with the boys and seeing all my old friends and hopefully meet some new ones!!"

In addition to Schenker and Van Landing, the lineup for the forthcoming tour is expected to include Pete Holmes (BLACK N BLUE) on drums, Wayne Findlay (MSG) on keyboards/guitar and Elliott Rubinson  (DEAN GUITARS) on bass.

Schenker's latest album, "Temple Of Rock", was released in Europe on September 23, 2011 and in North America on October 11, 2011 on CD and LP through Schenker's own Inakustik label via MVD Entertainment Group. Due to a four year battle with a recurring Acid Reflux and the nasty Stomach Bacteria, HP, Robin McAuley has now been diagnosed with a Hiatal Hernia and requires surgery and can no longer participate in the Upcoming MSG fall North American tour by Doctors order.

Robin has released this statement in regards to this decision.....

"In light of the upcoming MSG shows beginning early October 2012, I regretfully am forced to cancel my appearance with Michael Schenker. I expect to be back in the saddle soon as this is taken care of but it's important for all the fans to know how very disappointed I am. I make a point of staying healthy and always ready to meet the challenges of each day as it comes. This is one of those days I rarely have to confront, but here it is nonetheless. I promise to be back at ya! real soon.

Be well, all of you, and thank you for your support.

God Bless, Robin" The MICHAEL SCHENKER "Temple of Rock" North American Tour will continue with DAVID VAN LANDING replacing Robin on vocals who has been the cornerstone of MSG tours in the 90's as the lead vocalist and most recently was featured on the MICHAEL SCHENKER sold out tour of South America in 2011. Michael Schenker is happy to have him for the second leg of the North America tour now.

See all of you out there! Keep Rockin!  And all the best to Robin!

Temple Of Rock 2011.08.25

MICHAEL SCHENKER - TEMPLE OF ROCK

“The Temple of Rock is within me, says Michael, where I create since I was introduced to the amazing invention of the distorted Guitar which is for me the most enjoyable and the best possible way to express myself. The Rock Guitar Sound that I fell in love with, mostly expressed as Lead breaks, is what I have nurtured and treasured all of my life. Combined with the infinite spring from within and the amazing musicians around me I keep expressing an on going development of my Art (Being)”.

“With Temple of Rock, Michael adds, I am entering a new stage of my life, a new level of existence enjoying life more than ever, reaping the joy of all sorts of developments from the past. These days I just want to go out there having fun playing.

Also, it seems to me that collectively, with true expressive makers of Rock Music, we have been building the external Temple Of Rock for many years and have now come to the point of putting on the roofing and celebrating the almost completion of the Temple. All generations of this period are meeting all over the world on one stage it seems celebrating an Era of "Hand Made Rock" which will never be the same again due to invention of new technology but of course New Temples and New Wonders will arise to enjoy expressions in new ways”.

In 2011 Michael celebrates his 40th jubilee as a recording artists.

On Nov.10th 2010 Michael Schenker was honored with an Award in London along other Rock Legends including Ron Wood and Slash.The Award was presented to Michael by Alice Cooper. It seemed as if most of the Essence of Rock was present from Legends such as Jimmy Page to Toni Iommi to John Paul Johns and many others.

The Marshall “11” award—given to those artists and musicians who represent rock ’n’ roll excess and livin’ on the edge – went to German rock guitarist Michael Schenker, whose fame as a founding member of The Scorpions and later the lead guitar player for UFO has given him universal recognition as one of the most legendary figures in metal guitar.

Brazil 2010.08.14


To everyone in Brazil: we are also disappointed that we will not be coming to Brazil this summer. We are in the process of some really big things and look forward to coming to Brazil when the timing is right. For the sake of completeness: There has not been any contract or contract breach on concerts in Brazil; we simply had to pass an offer this time. The promoters allready removed their first ambiguous note, as it was based on a misunderstanding. We had really great shows and fantastic audiences in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo in 2009. So MSG can´t wait to be back to Brazil! Keep Rockin.

10th-favorite guitarist of all times 2008.05.30
Thiago Sarkis of Roadie Crew magazine (www.roadiecrew.net) organised a poll in which 330 guitarists were asked to mention their favorite guitarists of all time. Among the participants in the poll were current and former members of such bands as GUNS N' ROSES, KISS, MACHINE HEAD, ALICE COOPER, NIGHTWISH, MEGADETH, SCORPIONS, TESTAMENT, ARCH ENEMY, KING DIAMOND, SEPULTURA, DIO, TWISTED SISTER, KAMELOT, BLUE CHEER, YES, GENESIS, DOWN, KING CRIMSON, TEN YEARS AFTER, MICK JAGGER, OZZY OSBOURNE etc.

The results of the poll were published in the new issue of Roadie Crew (#112) and showed Michael Schenker as the 10th-favorite guitarist of all times to the guitarists of Classic Rock & Heavy Metal.

The 330 participants of the poll chose 5 guitarists to make their Top 5 and had to put them in order. Afterwards, they were free to mention from 1 to 5 other musicians which would be among their favourites as well. First place got 10 points. Second place, 8 points. Third place, 6 points. Fourth place, 4 points. Fifth place, 2 points. From the sixth to the tenth place, 1 point.

Michael Schenker was cited 58 times and accumulated 281 points. He was picked one of the favorites by such musicians as Paul Gilbert (Racer X - ex-Mr. Big), Michael Amott (Arch Enemy), Roland Grapow (Masterplan - ex-Helloween), Aaron Aedy (Paradise Lost), Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson (Testament), Andy LaRocque (King Diamond), Gary Holt (Exodus), Erik Turner (Warrant), Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Hans Ziller (Bonfire), Jim Matheos (Fates Warning), among many others.

Chris Caffery (Savatage) picked Michael Schenker as his No. 1 and was invited by Roadie Crew to come up with a statement about his favorite guitarists of all times. Caffery wrote: "Michael is in my opinion the greatest lead guitar player ever. Each solo he played brought the song to a new level. He talked to us with his guitar."
