Schenker Group, The Michael - World Wide Live 2004

Year of Release: 2004
Label: Music Video Distributors
Catalog Number: DR-4412
Format: DVD
Total Time: 00:00:00

Michael Schenker is a rock icon, a guitar hero that has been around the block with the Scorpions, UFO and his own band MSG. He has nothing to prove as a guitar player so taping a recent concert was an updated bonus for all of his fans around the world.

World Wide Live 2004, filmed at the Metalmania Festival this year, includes highlights of all periods of Schenker's long and successful career. He gives equal time to his days with UFO and his own solo work to satisfy the audience.

The band behind Schenker is sharp and tight, however, the vocals of Chris Logan prove to be inadequate for the power of the music. His is range is limited, thus making the entire performance a lackluster one for the band as a unit. As I said, this is one potent musical force; however, I think if Schenker were to seek out a vocalist that can match his guitar wizardry, his music would take on a completely different meaning.
