Uli Jon Roth Comments On Working With Elliot Rubinson For 40th Anniversary Tour

As the 40th Anniversary of his joining the Scorpions North American tour rolls on, Uli Jon Roth has confirmed that Dean Guitars and Ddrum CEO Elliot Rubinson will be playing bass in Uli's band for the first half of the tour.

Rubinson recently toured North America as a part of Michael Schenker's band. Elliot started on January 26th in Santa Ana, CA and will continue on the tour through February 12th in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. In addition ULI will be joined by various Dean Artists throughout the tour.

Elliot commented about being a part of ULI's band on the upcoming tour: "I have been fortunate to be able to have played with Uli everywhere from cruise ship tours to European trade shows. He is clearly one of the greatest guitarists ever with a sense of harmonies few possess. Since we grew up on the same music we share a passion for greats like Jimi Hendrix. I am very excited about being a part of the filming and recording taking place on this tour"

Uli is equally excited to be playing with Rubinson: "It is always a real pleasure to share the stage with Elliott Rubinson. Not only is he an excellent bass player, who delivers the goods at every show, but he also connects with the audience in a great way. Together we're rocking the house!"

In addition to his 40th Anniversary shows, Uli will also be offering his Sky Academy Seminars while he is on the road in North America. The aim of Sky Academy is to provide knowledge and inspiration to those who take guitar playing seriously and to help them reach a new plateau. The seminars are designed to open musicians' eyes to new possibilities and to trigger an awakening of the student's full potential and talent.
