Michael Schenker is one of the most significant rock guitarists in the history of music. He has mesmerised the rock community since the 70s with his characteristic guitar playing style and solidified his place in music history writing hits like ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Rock Bottom’ during his time in UFO, as well as composing SCORPIONS classics such as ‘Coast To Coast’ and ‘Holiday’, among others. His playing has proved influential for several generations of guitar players.
Back in 1979, the ‘German Wunderkind’ decided that he wanted to be his own boss. He founded the Michael Schenker Group aka M.S.G. and released masterpieces such as Assault Attack and Built To Destroy, the live legacy One Night At Budokan as well as the McAuley Schenker Group pearls Perfect Timing and Save Yourself. M.S.G. also became a home for some great vocalists, including Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow etc.) and Robin McAuley.
