Editorial Reviews

Blu Ray version! A concert from Tilburg in the Netherlands, recorded in May 2012. This release distinguishes itself from previous releases due to the line-up that includes Michael Schenker (lead guitar), Doogie White (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), Francis Buchholz (bass) and Wayne Findley (rhythm guitar, keyboards). Also includes bonus tracks from the 2011 High Voltage Festival with Michael Voss (vocals), plus awe-inspiring guest appearances from Schenker''s friends and musical companions including his brother Rudolf Schenker (The Scorpions), ex-Journey singer Jeff Scott Soto, and UFO bassist Pete Way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whoa....! January 23, 2013
Format:DVD
Seriously....I'm so taken by this DVD that I can't even describe it other than.. "Whoa!"

This is probably one of the most (if not THE MOST) incredible concert dvd's I've ever heard/seen. I'll slightly digress by making a sports analogy so please accept my advanced apology if you are not a sports fan.....

Another Michael, "Jordan" that is, was probably the greatest basketball player that ever lived. On a typical night for him he'd score between 25-30 points in a game. On those rare nights when he was really "ON," you'd see him drop 50 points or more!

Musicians,like sports heroes, can be much the same. Michael Schenker, one of the planet's greatest guitar players, sounds better than most people on any given night. He has a multitude of live recordings to enjoy and you'll hear him on any number of his live recordings "wow" you with his talent. On those very rare nights, he will go "otherworldly" on you, much like Michael Jordan could do when he was in the zone! There haven't been many of those live recorded moments of Michael Schenker's when he was captured on a truly "ON" night. "Strangers in the Night" by UFO may be one of them (though it was actually recorded over a couple of different nights in 1978) and maybe his performance on "One Night at Budokan." I truly think that on this DVD, all cylinders are firing and it may very well be the greatest "on" moment of Michael's ever recorded!

The sound quality is phenomenal and the producer/director does a decent job of actually showing Michael Schenker when he's soloing ( I hate it when they pan to other band members during a musician's solo on most concert dvd's). The only reason I give this 4 instead of 5 stars is because Doogie White trashes many of the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Best Video Thus Far! February 9, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Outstanding! What else can I say? Actually, quite a bit. Like anyone else posting a review, I am a long-time fan, yadda yadda yadda... but Temple of Rock was a revelation in Michael Schenker's playing. Too many fans, myself included, have been caught in the 1980s trap that we use to measure Schenker's performance and song writing. I rather liked his association with Robin McAuley, and find his neoclassical style to have evolved over the years. Sure, his battles with substances and family drama have been noted all too well in his disappearances and bad performances in the early-mid 2000s. I have a lot of his videos, and the one from Tokyo in the late 1990s stands out for his energy. Then, in 2004, a video shot in Poland shows a hairy, bloated Michael who can barely rock in time for the first five or six songs. It is dismaying to see him in a slump like that, but this new video shows his triumphant return, and then some....

Schenker's return to form was gradual, however. I saw him in the summer of 2009 at the now demolished Angel's Road House in Yucaipa, CA, and while he put on a good show with Gary Barden at the vocal helm, he still lacked some extra energy. i don't know if it was the venue, but he hid behind his sunglasses. At times he revealed his friendliness toward the audience, encouraging people to strum the delay-engaged guitar for the lead in to "Lost Horizons." Move forward to the fall of 2010, and Michael is firing on all cylinders again, and I noted that appreciatively at the Key Club in LA. Gary Barden even commented he thought it was their best show yet while on the 30th anniversary tour. The set list was heavy toward the Barden-era albums, with the usual selection of UFO tracks. Amazing energy, and I got to not only strum his guitar, but high five him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Schenker=musical virtuoso January 24, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of Mr. Michael Schenker since the 70's. I have no hesitation in saying this video and audio recording is beyond what he did in his younger years. Through all that this man has been through, to record this is beyond inspirational. He has always been and will continue to be one of my al time favorite guitarists! Bless, you, MIchael--you are an amazing talent and distinguished studied musician--please keep up the wonderful music you have given us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schenker's Swan Song January 25, 2013
By Davo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a tour de force for Michael Schenker. I have many past Schenker dvds and this one is by far the best. His solos are spot on, note for note, and the band is tight. I won't get into the vocals, they're good, but I prefer Gary Barden, although his voice is not what it used to be. Michael Schenker, together with ex-scorpions, and Wayne Findlay lay it down and deliver big time! I love the set list which includes plenty of MSG and almost half of the Lovedrive album, (Coast To Coast is great to hear live) and a nice slice of UFO. Michael's signature song "Rock Bottom" is perhaps the best version I've ever heard. His solos are flawless and the energy level is high. One unexpected gem on this dvd is to see Wayne Findlay solo on "Rock You Like A Hurricane." He really holds the band together. Other highlights include Holiday, Shoot Shoot, and Blackout. I would recommend this to any Schenker fan. We will never know if we get to see another one like this!

Gotta admit, major Schenker fan and saw this tour and this Blu-Ray represented everything I saw. This isn't the biggest deal on earth, but the Blu-Ray DOES represent what I saw and I was thrilled! It will ALMOST make you feel like you are there and there is good shots of everyone and great sound. If you love Michael Schenker, I highly reccomend it!
