Michael Schenker made a triumphant return to New York on Wednesday night in Gramercy Park. Once again, Michael was one with his guitar, and the result was excitement, joy, and awe for everyone in attendance. It is such a beautiful thing to watch Mr. Schenker head and shoulders rocking in rhythm as he hunches over his V, sending melodic bolts of lightening into the souls of those listening. When he aims the neck of his guitar at us, he is literally slaying us with his musical power.
There was absolutely nothing not to like about this show. Schenker was flawless, the band was tight (Gary Barden was outstanding on vocals), and the enthusiasm of the crowd was tremendous. Michael's solo on Rock Bottom was as if inspired by God. Truly.
A special bonus, mentioned in the earlier review, was Leslie West coming out for the 1st encore. They played magnificently together, 2 masters in total synch. Bone chilling stuff.
Many thanks to everyone involved in this tour, especially Michael himself, for pulling this all together in such a beautiful way. The smile that formed on my face wednesday night has still not faded, and the notes are still resonating in my heart and in my soul.
