Michael Schenker is one of the most significant rock guitarists in the history of music. He has mesmerised the rock community since the 70’s with his characteristic guitar play and constructed himself a monument during his time in UFO by writing hits like “Doctor Doctor” and “Rock Bottom”, as well as Scorpions classics such as “Lovedrive”, Coast To Coast” and “Holiday”, among others. His playing has influenced several generations of guitar players enormously.

Back in 1979, the “German Wunderkind” decided to be his own boss. He founded the Michael Schenker Group aka M.S.G. and released the masterpieces 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 the home of great vocalists, most notably Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow etc.) and Robin McAuley. Those guys were also a part of the comprehensive Michael Schenker Fest, whose celebrated Tokyo show was released as a live CD, DVD, and Blu-ray in March. Now the time has come for Michael Schenker to move another step forward: by releasing Resurrection, he fulfills the long-awaited dream of all hard rock fans!
