Schenker Clean and Sober: Better than ever!
on October 22, 2011
Michael Schenker is a Rock N' Roll God! One of the cleanest, most fluid, and with a tone that is to die for, he is a musicians musician. That's the reason he has so many fans who are musicians themselves. He's been clean (for good I think, FINALLY) for about five years now and his playing has gotten better!!! Consider that for a moment. Rock Bottom, 1974. Mother Mary and This Kids, 1975. Reasons Love (INCREDIBLE GUITAR PLAYING), 1976. Lights Out and Love To Love, 1977. And Hot N' Ready (One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE LEADS) And, Only You Can Rock Me, 1978. Those are just the early UFO years. Now here he is at 56 years old and he's absolutely tearing it up. He opened a week of shows a couple of months ago for Black Country Communion and had to have made Mr. Bonamassa quite uncomfortable coming out every night after Michael had set the bar. I LOVE JOE. LOVE HIM! But this was his 1st real tour with BCC playing 70's style hard Rock N' Roll. Michael has been doing that ALL ALONG! This album (Yes, I bought both the vinyl and the CD) has radio friendly hit songs, hard rock anthems, and everything in between. He has a slew of phenomenal guests on EVERY SONG. I would recommend it to anyone!!
