Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock “On A Mission: Live In Madrid” DVD to be released April 29th
Billed as the ‘Spirit on a Mission’ tour Michael Schenker has just finished a ten date UK tour with the last show being at the ‘Giants of Rock’ festival at the Butlins resort in Minehead.
It’s been quite a while since my latest DVD review, so I thought it would be cool to do another one. Yesterday I watched the documentary “Forever And A Day”. It documents the farewell tour of Germany’s biggest Hard Rock export, Scorpions. The movie was released in some cinemas in conjunction with the release of the new album “Return To Forever”. I will discuss whether or not this was a smart move in this review.
Ever since I was 17 when I decided to stop copying people and start to express myself instead and to stop listening to music so I could enjoy this for many many years.
Before guitar enthusiasts were salivating over the wizardry of Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, genius German, Michael Schenker, adorned the walls of most potential shredders walls. The now 60 year old legend first cut his teeth with Scorpions. He appeared on their debut album, Lonesome Crow in 1972, at the tender age of 17, before hooking up with British rock giants UFO in 1974.

Well its all development, everything was special at the time when it was done because it was always the now. I don’t really necessarily look back. If I look back I had a great journey for sure. I like the now because the past has been done. I dealt with it and so my focus is more on the now that even in the future. I may have a blueprint of what is coming up,eg of what the tour is..the dates.I don’t know what I am going to be doing further down the road.”
