||GRAHAM BONNET, ROBIN McAULEY WORKING WITH MICHAEL VOSS ON SCHENKER LIVE PROJECT
14th October 2016
It looks like this summer's spate of Michael Schenker Fests, which saw the legendary axe-slinger reunited with three former Schenker band vocalists, Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley will result in a live CD/DVD package in the near future.
Producer Michael Voss has posted pictures over the last two days which show him in Los Angeles working with Bonnet and McAuley on vocal sessions. It is believed they applying some fixes to recordings done in Tokyo, Japan in late August.
The Schenker Fest shows have played very well from the first one at Sweden Rock Festival on June 11th and the series has been extended with the band just announcing that they will be co-headlining at Germany's Bang Your Head Festival on July 5th 2017.
In addition to the guest vocalists, the Michael Schenker Fest band has been fleshed out with longtime Schenker band favorites Chris Glen on bass, Ted McKenna on drums) and Steve Mann on guitar and keyboards.
While fans are rabidly speculating about the future of Schenker's current ongoing Temple Of Rock project, most likely these shows are simply filling up the German guitarist's touring schedule while work is being done to prepare for his band's next album. We'll see what the future holds.
