Michael Schenker

Worthy of an honorable mention as one of the greatest guitarist ever, have a listen to 1978s double-live UFO album, "Strangers in the Night" and prepare to be blown away by the sheer virtuosity of Rudy(the Scorpions)Schenker's kid brother. I'm still listening to it 31 years later and it's still awesome. Tracks like "Lights Out", "This Kid" and "Let it Roll" really showcase Michael's versatility and of course "Rock Bottom" is a masterpiece. He may not be the "greatest guitarist ever", but his influence has been felt by everyone from Def Leapord to Guns N Roses. Check him out and see if you agree.
