Also, I have got messages from those who went to the venue and found that it was cancelled. Sorry for you, Okamura-san, Marshall, and everyone.

MSG w/ Geroge Lynch Solo: The information that Lynch Mob will play for the 12/19 & 12/20 shows at the House of Blues Chicago with MSG was posted here (refer to 10/23/2003 update).

[11/05/03 update]
HOB Second Date: I have got some inquiries about why neither Ticketmaster or the House of Blues Chicago websites have the 12/20 show listed. According to Chris Logan, the show is confirmed - they just don't start selling tickets for the second night until the first night sells out, or reaches a certain level of ticket sales.

Interviews: According to Amy Schugar, Michael will be interviewed by the Guitar World magazine. Also, Amy has been interviewed by Paul Suter, which will be posted later. And, don't forget about Batty's interview to Amy (and probably Michael)!

[11/02/03 update]
MSG Tourdates: According to Chris Logan site, one date listed on Pollstar which is Fri 12/05/03 - Phoenix, AZ - Mason Jar is not official and will probably not take place. This is because the venue is too small and they are currently looking into other venues in the area. Also, accoring to Chris, they will try Palo Alto one more time (refer to 12/2001 entries), and there might be some shuffling around of the dates in CA to allow for it. Keep checking Chris' pages.

[11/01/03 update]

Another Michael Schenker Interveiew: The August issue of YOUNG GUITAR magazine has a special 4-page interview to Michael Schenker including playing technique analysis for the song "Weathervane" with tab. This interview was also conducted after Michael got out of the rehabilitation center. Compared with the Burrn interview, this is much better. I guess this is partly because of the editor/interviewer policy. But, Michael sounds very positive, healthy and willing in the interview.

Always Loving: I just think I have to say that I love Michael Schenker music and will always and forever. He is the one and only. It's what this website is all about. What if you were a professional newspaper writer and posted an article without doing any back research? That should be another matter of responsiblity.

Michael Schenker New Interveiew: The August issue of Burrn magazine has an exclusive interview to Michael Schenker which was conducted on May 29 just after he got out of the center for psychological rehabilitation on May 21. I disrespect some of his comments which are really disgusting. I don't want to even comment on them. However, a few of his remarks have some news value, maybe.
