Michael Schenker's Bridge The Gap Gets January Release

by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Michael Schenker is one of the greatest heavy metal/hard rock guitarists of all-time, as the amount of renowned guitarists that list him as a prime influence is off the charts. And on his newest release, Bridge the Gap, Schenker reunites with his old rhythm section from the Scorpions days – bassist Francis Buchholz and drummer Herman Rarebell – as well as enlisting ex-Rainbow singer Doogie White, plus guitarist/keyboardist Wayne Findlay. And if that wasn't enough metallic star power, Don Dokken lends his vocals to an exclusive track Faith - which is only available on the record’s “deluxe edition.”

Produced by Michael Schenker and Michael Voss (and engineered by Voss), Bridge the Gap will be released in the US on January 7th, 2014.

Bridge the Gap will be released in three configurations:

* CD
