    Been checking out UFO lately. Phil Mogg's voice is incredible. I actually like a lot of their later stuff after Michael left too. Damn, the solo on this though...

    Before there were any other metal guitarists... Michael Schenker was somewhere in Europe riding a moped... he had already laid the foundation for all the others...

    Michael Schenker is one of the most melodic guitar soloists of all time, IMO. Really, really awesome playing. Unfortunately, in my opinion most of his projects did not feature great songwriting. OK songwriting at best,
    but not great. The reason we remember great players like Hendrix, Page, Richards, Billy Gibbons, etc, is that they play killer lines over killer songs. Schenker played killer lines and riffs over "meh" songs, mostly.
    Such a shame, really. It goes to show that the song is what matters the most, no matter how well you play.

    Even as a 17 year old I could hear how most of the songs were pretty mediocre. For most of his tunes I was just tolerating the song and trying not to totally hate it until it got to the guitar solo.
