Michael Schenker

Michael Schenker was born January 10th, 1955 in Savstedt, Germany.  He began playing guitar at a very early age when his older brother Rudolph brought home a Gibson Flying V, which reportedly captured Michael’s imagination.  His first gig came when he was 11,  playing at a local nightclub with Rudy and the Scorpions.  Schenker’s recording debut came on the Scorpions’ first album, “Lonesome Crow” when he was just 17.
