MICHAEL SCHENKER - "My Rock God Is JEFF BECK"

In the audio clip below, guitar legend Michael Schenker reveals the artist he considers a rock god: Jeff Beck. 

Schenker: "Jeff Beck has a way of doing things with his guitar that doesn't sound like anybody else. It's pure self-expression. That's what I do, but I don't play like him. I think it was the album Truth (1968) with Cozy Powell on it, I think. Rod Stewart was singing. I listened to it at my friend's place in Hannover, and I was walking home in the middle of the night, going like... 'One day, I'm gonna play like that!' I was so inspired."

Michael Schenker Fest's new album, Revelation, is available as CD digipak, 2LP (different colours) as well as a limited boxset incl. CD digipak, 2LP (red+black splatter), puzzle, poster 60x30, photo cards. Get your version here.
