Rock News for Tuesday 2nd March, 2010
Hi all, first of all isn't it amazing how when you set a deadline on things, people get interested?! LOL!
Following my announcement yesterday on the Michael Schenker competition in conjunction with MVD Entertainment, we have a winner!
Dave Dunford from Auburn Hills answered my question correctly, to name 4 drummers who have played live with the Michael Schenker Group.
Thanks by the way to Peter Mondria in the Netherlands, who also answered correctly, but I had to remind Peter of the rules, that it was indeed only open to residents of the USA and Canada.
Since Peter took the time out though, I'd like to suggest to fans of Michael Schenker, to check out Peter's MSG website, which is very cool! Nice one Peter. Check it out here:
Dave, the CD is winging it's way to you right now!
Dave answered with: Cozy Powell, Chris Slade, Pete Holmes and Bodo Schopf.
You could've also had Ted McKenna who replaced Cozy Powell, Simon Phillips, who has just played the Japanese dates with MSG - That will provide a new live DVD later this year or Shane Gaalaas too.
Without further ado though, let get some news out there!
