MICHAEL SCHENKER's 'Pathetic' Performance Captured On Video

According to fan postings on the official Rock & Blues Custom Show forum (here and here), legendary German guitarist Michael Schenker delivered a less-than-impressive performance at the annual U.K. festival, which was held over the weekend at Coney Grey Showground, Chesterfield Road, Pentrich, Derbyshire, England. One attendee, who goes by the name "trkelly", described Schenker's performance Saturday night (July 28) as "pathetic," adding that "you could see people in the crowd cringing at his performance. The man wasn't in a fit state to pick up a guitar, never mind play it. I did feel a bit sorry for the rest of his band, but got to say the singer murdered every UFO song they did; it would have certainly given Phil Mogg a good laugh."

Fan-filmed video footage of one of Schenker's solos has been posted on YouTube. Watch it below.
