Michael Schenker Fest 'Live' Tokyo CD release

Words by Adrian Ball

Michael Schenker is bonafide guitar hero who started his career with the Scorpions, then UFO before launching a solo career with numerous highs.  

Michael Schenker Fest ‘Live’ Tokyo magically transports you back in time, helping you remember that first encounter with a different kind of music.  When you just had to stand still, caught out by outstanding guitar licks that aren’t delivered by any other type of music. This is rock!

Mellow intro Searching for freedom is the calm before the storm, before Victim of Illusion, early from his solo career,comes in with superb layering of definitive components needed for a memorable rock song; axe attack time.

Other highlights include Armed & Ready which is real classic rock and harks back to rock club days, singing the chorus into your fist while your friends play their air guitarsA real gem of a song.

Dancer shows a softer side with influences coming from Graham Bonnet’s input that really showcase both artists’ writing talents. It’ll get you moving while bringing a melancholic smile. This is my Heart keeps with that theme; a really catchy riff and superb vocals, making you wish for those summer nights, driving with the windows down blasting the stereo up to 11.

This is an album full of Schenker classics, delivering memorable songs and moving you away from your day to day routines to a place where you can escape with music.
