Important Announcement - Axes & Anchors Cruise: The following message has been posted on Michael Schenker's official website.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that I will not be able to participate on the upcoming Axes & Anchors cruise. I was genuinely excited to perform on this unique and amazing musical voyage alongside some incredible talent. But with the recent tragic passing of my friend David Van Landing, who was going to be performing with me, I cannot bring myself to perform that material on board the ship. It would be doing a disservice to the cruise, its patrons, and the memory of David to attempt this show without him. I know there will be some disappointed fans, but the cruise has assembled some of the best talent out there and I know it will thrive in light of my having to cancel. I can only hope that after time passes we can come to grips with the loss of David and adequately honor his memory. I look forward to being a part of future Axes & Anchors cruises and appreciate the support of everyone during this trying time. --Michael Schenker

Michael Schenker's top 5 tips for guitarists (Music Radar)
Have you any plans to get up on stage with The Scorpions before they call it a day?

I don’t pay attention to any of that. I focus on what I’m doing. I’m fed up with that, and I’m disappointed in them; they have completely distorted the ‘Lovedrive’ phase. Just a few weeks ago I was confronted with The Scorpions [albums reissue] box, and what I saw there, it really, really shocked me. I can’t trust them anymore. The whole ‘Lovedrive’ story is wrong. They are putting it down as if I begged them to take me into The Scorpions. They begged me to join ? I was already doing arena tours with UFO in the States. It’s unbelievable. They asked me to help them, and now I see that the whole ‘Lovedrive’ story is written to their favour; they are the big guys.

I can’t believe it, honestly ? they’re just fooling people with their finishing playing, and then they don’t, and then [they continue playing] forever and ever. I guess when you get older you get bolder or something, but I have absolutely no interest because I can’t trust them. If I look back now, it’s unbelievable, little bits and pieces I’m discovering. So putting together the whole picture, it looks like they’re absolutely desperate.
