Supporting Judas Priest on their current tour is Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock, basically it’s Michael Schenker with a band going through a few of his better known tracks from his back catalogue.

For those not aware of Michael Schenker the German native of Sarstedt was an early member of rock giants Scorpions (note no The. Just plain old Scorpions!), playing on three albums. Had two stints with UFO and has had various line ups with MSG (Michael Schenker Group, McAuley Schenker Group). With those bands there is quite a back catalogue of songs to pick from over the last four decades.

This incarnation of Schenker’s band features Doogie White on vocals (Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force and Rainbow), Herman Rarebell on drums and bass player Francis Buchholz who both played on Scorpions’ 1979 album Lovedrive with Schenker. Completing the line up is Wayne Findlay on guitar.

This live version of Lovedrive was recorded at the Wacken festival in 2006 and features Michael with his brother Rudolph and the rest of Scorpions.
