NIGHT RANGER guitarist Jeff Watson has elaborated further on his recent work on the latest MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP (MSG) CD, "Arachnophobiac", telling Dinosaur Rock Guitar that "It all started a couple of years ago when Michael was in that studio doing a record for Mike Varney [Shrapnel Records]. At the time Michael borrowed a couple of guitars and an amp from me. I'd met him previously in Japan. We did some photos together. I was a big fan of Michael's when I was younger — it comes naturally with regards to that style. Anyway, I was up there with my girlfriend just tooling around. I wanted to show her the studio and Varney happened to be there. He approached me and said: 'Schenker's gone AWOL for a few days and we need to finish this album.' (Varney) wanted me to work on four songs. He said: 'Do you mind? I'll give you 36 hours to do them.' So I came down to my studio, plugged it in and played on four tracks. Without vocals I had no idea what I was doing. But evidently they did a real good job with the completed tracks later in their studio. I played between vocals that weren't there."
