    I saw him last year at a little place with about 100 people.
    He killed it.

    He's been playing at such a high level the past few years-seeing him live was a great experience.

    One of the best rock guitarists out there.

    His phrasing and melodic sensibilities really make him standout.

    He is another huge influence on my playing.

    I have always love his playing. That bass player on the clip is also just killing it.

    I will look to see him this tour. He is one of the few old school metal guys I can listen to and never get bored. Love his lead lines.

    Closest show is Chicago, no way I can do that on a Thursday.
    A friend saw him last night in San Antonio, said he & the band were great.

    Michael Schenker was on tonight! That is what a ROCK guitar player sounds and plays like!

    Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz from the Scorps were solid. I was so star struck!

    Doogie White, what an I say? The dude, has some pipes and can lay it down!

    MS was awesome! If you think he is out of it, think again. He is in top form right now.

    Huge Inspiration as a younger guitarplayer.
    I think like every young schenker manic fan I tried to learned every solo he did from UFO and MSG .

    Whats funny after all these years is just recently I noticed he uses his 2nd finger to do most of the bends not his 3rd! Thought that was interesting ,the "django" of hard rock
    Rock on sir!
