    Wow, he looks so much better than the last time I saw him. Lost a lot of weight, too.

    michael is back o top again....fluid, fast when he wants to be and his melody is matured and sober....i like his tone but his half cocked wah sound is missing...and nobody does it with the style and patience that m schenker does...

    Geez, McAuley sounds good - don't usually like his voice, but he's strong here.
    Michael sounds great - real confident, even w/ a pretty pedestrian backing group.

    Wow, so he's doing U.S. tours again. For a while, his cheatin' ex's attorney was monitoring the gigs, so they could get a cut

    Great player, great sense of melody.

    Hopefully he got his head straight, or got on some good meds. The dude is off the charts paranoid.

    Great clips!! It's so cool to see Schenker tearing it up after so many had given up hope on him. The man is legendary and his sense of melody floors me every time.

    Great stuff. He was just here, but I missed it.

    I like how about 4 min in you can see a bunch of people trying to record with their cell phones. How can you "be there" when you're busy trying to make sure everyone is lined up in the cam view finder?

    Looks like he's sitting in with a Pantera tribute band.

    He clearly outshines them.

    Glad to see that he's got it together again- he was in rough shape for a while...

    edit-

    Okay, so i've watched this video at least 10x since i read this thread- please tell me which albums i should buy to hear MS wailing like he is in this clip. BADASS rock guitar!

    Oh man, that song brings back memories. Strangers in the Night was one of my favorite albums through high school and college. I listened to it a few weeks ago - I really love his playing.
