Michael Schenker - "Temple Of Rock - Live In Europe" DVD + CD

German metal guitarist Schenker is a true rock legend. This live DVD and CD (packaged and sold separately) are the same recordings from 2012, and together, they showcase the virtuosity and power that Schenker has been known for over the course of his 40-year career with UFO, the Scorpions, and his own MSG (Michael Schenker Group).

There are 24 tracks here (on both the CD and DVD), recorded live in Tilburg and London. Schenker and his band (including some guests like his brother Rudolf) storm through plenty of classic stadium-style rockers. We even get two versions of the Scorpions' classic "Rock You Like A Hurricane". And although his band is pretty well spot-on, the real star here is Schenker, who is a guitar monster, rolling off licks like it's his second nature (and I'm sure it is). It all sounds superb, and the video footage is multi-camera, multi-angle, and quite professional. Solid work, and a must-have for serious Schenker fans.
