Michael Schenker New Interview (in German): A new interview with Michael Schenker conducted by WDR (RockPalast), a German media has been posted on YouTube. It's in German but Jigal has kindly sent me the synopsis. Thanks, Jigal!!


(Synopsis by Jigal Beez)First time he held a guitar was after his brother Rudolf got one as a birthday present. He was fascinated by creating sounds playing a single string. He started his first band with 11 years. It was put together for him by Rudolf in Sarstedt (Schenker hometown near Hannover). His first gig was as a eleven year old in a town called Elze in a club called Twist-Tenne. He found friends and musicians with the same interest in Hannover but due to lack of management or structures that supported rock music he felt that Germany was underdeveloped. Disco music was popular but rock only on underground level. With fourteen he discovered Sabbath and Led Zep and entered into the little German Rock scene but only 2 ? years later he left for England because that's where the music came from.
Lonesome Crow was produced within a week by Conny Plank. But he cannot tell what Conny Plank actually did as he only focussed on his guitarplaying. He wrote the songs and was only interested in hin solos whereas Klaus wrote the lyrics. He is not sure if there are psychedelic influences on that record. At that time he visited many festivals to ?hunt guitarists“. He wanted to see how they were playing. I saw many different styles but with 17 he wanted to develop his own style from within and stopped listening to others.
From his first Scorpions period he only remembers permanent touring which he enjoyed a lot. He didn't care if they had food or not but liked riding on the bus and playing gigs. Setting up the amps and PA on their own was hard work as their PA was big with over 20 Speakers. On the bus they sang beatles songs. And wrote new own songs which was fun. He was ready to leave the Scorpions for any English band. They knew about it and had a successor for him: Uli Jon Roth who was born only a few villages away from their own little town and has the same star/zodiac sign as Michael. So Michael feels the change was meant to be. In England he could give in the 1970s his musical contribution to the world which was later in the 1980s used by other bands. Rudolf followed Michaels steps musicially and geographially expanding the Scorpions to England and the US but Rudolf wraped the product nicer, simplified it for mass consumption and sold it better. That was a different step of development in the 80s founded on Michael's 70s contribution.
What Michael is currently doing is revisiting his past with temple of rock. So he is knitting together the web of history using the strings from the 70s ad 80s or as he put it like a cow, a ruminant, he is chewing again the old grass to digest and understand it better. It is a closed circle. Nowadays he can consciously enjoy what he had created unconsciously in the past.
He actually got a phone call once to audition for the Rolling Stones, just after he had joined UFO. But he felt insecure as Brian Jones had just died and he saw in magazines pictures where the Stones were checked for lice. As he was shy and fragile he felt this offer was too far fetched after discussing with Rudolf.
Question ?What is the magic of the flying V“ Answer: ?Nothing“ It became a Schenker brothers icon just because he liked it and developed on it.
By rejoining the Scorpions for lovedrive he was the dooropener for the american market. But then he wanted to experiment. The 80s were the start of his expermintation stage which ended 2008, when he wanted to be back in the now.
Rudolf and Michaels had no common interests due to their age difference. When Michael started school, Rudolf started work, when Michael finished school Rudolf got married. There is nothing like family chemestry when they share the stage. They only shared their guitar playing for 2 years during the first Scorpions period. That time he felt as a child at home being together with Rudolf. Otherwise they were seperated as they played in different bands. He didn't enjoy being the little one and lagging behind Rudolf in everything. He always knew what he wanted and didn't like the older ones in the band telling him what to do. Though according to Chinese zodic signs horse (Rudolf) and rat (Michael, Uli Roth, Matthias Jabs) the age difference sparks creativity. Rudolfs contribution the the temple of rock album was part of the MS career summery in which many musicians of Michaels musical past participated.
Q: You are sixty now. What do you want to do the next 60 years“ A: Playing guitar, looking for new sparks, colours of music.
Q Kirk Hammet is a big fan of yours and enjoyed sharing the stage with you. Are you also a fan of someone you liked to share the stage with? A: Jimmy Page and Led Zep as band, Jon Bonham is my favorite musician. Leslie West, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton. But he believes forst of all in self expression and not in copying idols.

More Rock Hard Festival: A new interview from the festival was posted on the Rockpalast site. It's only in German. Sven has kindly gave me a synopsis of that. Thanks, Sven!!

You can pick it in the interview section along with other bands.

http://www1.wdr.de/fernsehen/kultur/rockpalast/videos/uebersicht-rock-hard-festival-fuenfzehn100.html

He talks about playing in Germany, how he defines the setlist, his favorite song he plays live is Rock Bottom, interacting with the other band members and the audience during the show, that the youth is exploring the older music, that he lost his stage fright back in 2008 and now he enjoys being on stage.

When he was asked what he is doing after the show, if he hang out with other bands he mentioned that they (the band) has a competition who leaves the place at first (he laughs about it).

And if they have a ritual before entering the stage. He denies, that the is a certain ritual of the whole band. Everyone is preparing in his own way, because they are all very experienced.

In the preview section is also the version of Rock Bottom in a better quality available.

Temple of Rock Toronto Show Cancelled: An important announcement has been posted on Michael Schenker's official website.
Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock have with great regret had to cancel their up coming show at Rockpile West in Toronto. A spokesman for the band said. It is with great regret that we have had to cancel the show at Rockpile West on Wednesday night. Our singer Doogie White has been suffering with a chest infection for the last 5 shows and despite his finest efforts it has been decided to cancel this show to give him 2 days off from performing and offering a better chance for him to recover so the band can continue to give their very best at the shows for the remainder of the ツ郡pirit on a Mission USA tour. Doogie commented, I am very disappointed for the people who were looking forward to seeing TEMPLE of ROCK in Toronto, I have happy memories of playing there last year. The last 3 shows have been a real struggle for me and rather than jeopardize the remainder of the tour we had to make this difficult decision.

Michael Schenker's TEMPLE of ROCK with continue the remainder of the tour starting in Concord Music Hall Chicago on April 23.

The rest of the tour will continue as scheduled.

A spokesman for the band said "Everyone is gutted that we are missing out on playing these first few shows particularly as this will be the first time Herman and Francis have played together on American soil in many years. Everyone is so fired up to deliver killer performances of the new TEMPLE OF ROCK songs from 'Spirit on a Mission' as well as classics for The Scorpions, UFO and MSG".

"We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to those who bought tickets for the 3 affected shows but hope they will come rawk out with us at the re-scheduled performances. Sometimes things get beyond even our control and best endevours, as was the case in this situation".
