Michael Schenker's UK tour last summer was cut short due to a "multitude of events beyond the band's control, including Michael's," according to a posting on Schenker's MySpace page.

Schenker's final 2007 gig in the UK took place on August 3 in Stourbridge, U.K. when Michael ended up calling off the concert after only a handful of songs.

About time, I think Barden is the voice for MSG. He's the one who writes all the songs, it's like when Hagar came to Van Halen, they had songs not covers.
Didn't enjoy his last cd (Guitar work was amazing), old school here, not into Euro - Metal.

Simon Phillips on drums! Fantastic!
One of rock's best drummers with one of rock's best guitarists
Neil Murray and Don Airey are no slouches either
This should be a hell of a album
Hope the material is as strong as the lineup
