  MICHAEL SCHENKER ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM, 'BRIDGE THE GAP'
11th October 2013

michael schenker



Award-winning, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker will release a brand new studio album entitled 'Bridge The Gap' in the UK on Monday December 2nd.

Released by in-akustik, the album features Schenker's band Temple Of Rock which consists of ex-Scorpions Herman Rarebell (drums) and Francis Buchholz (bass), plus ex-Rainbow's Doogie White (vocals) and Wayne Findlay (guitar, keyboards).

Listen to the world premiere of new song 'Where The Wild Winds Blow' at the bottom of this page.

The new album features 13 hard-hitting, adrenalin fuelled melodic rock n' roll songs that showcase Schenker's distinctive and explosive guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rhythm section of Rarebell and Buchholz, marking the first time Schenker, Rarebell and Buchholz appeared on the same album together since the 1979 Scorpions album 'Lovedrive'.

"I wanted to combine the old with the new," says Schenker. "That's why the album's called 'Bridge The Gap'. With Wayne playing seven string guitar we created some low, heavy modern sounds. Since I play and experiment on a regular basis, I always have some new, fresh sparks to share when I record a new album. I am inspired from within. It's infinite like a kaleidoscope.

"As former members of the Scorpions, Herman, Francis and I have been out of the loop of rock n' roll for quite a while. Getting together for the first time since the 'Lovedrive' album is an incredible jump. We're connecting the past with the present. We're bridging the gap."

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
