Michael Schenker To Release VIP Package

Guitarist to publish unreleased material from '79.

Legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will soon release a personal VIP package. This never-before-heard CD will feature a recording made back in 1979, with Schenker playing guitar and bass on all tracks, and even adding vocals on some of the material.

"It’s a 14-track demo I wrote and recorded by myself in the Dieter Dirks' mobile studio whilst Rory Gallagher and the Scorpions were recording next door" says Schenker. "It was going to be material for my first solo album. There's some instrumentals and I even sing on a few. Ringo Funk helped out by playing drums on some tracks...I recorded this after I left the Scorpions 'Lovedrive' tour in ‘79. Some of this material I rehearsed later with Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton from Aerosmith. Some of it I rehearsed with Gary Barden, Billy Sheehan and Denny Carmassi."
