In Pictures : Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock Live at Hard Rock Hell 8

Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock Live at HRH 8 12The band of the weekend for 2/3 of team CackBlabbath at Hard Rock Hell, Michael Schenker finally has a stable line up that provides the perfect foil for his considerable talents. Doogie White is quite simply one of the best front men around, and at HRH 8 he had the crowd bouncing along from the start.

And what a start. Most bands keep their “big” tunes for the end of their set, but not Herr Schenker. As an opener Doctor Doctor is absolutely unbeatable. The setlist includes the obligatory MSG tunes but for me the highlights were some of the newer tracks, which go down an absolute storm.
