Video: MACHINE HEAD Guitarist Performs UFO Classic With MICHAEL SCHENKER

MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel joined Michael Schenker (SCORPIONS, UFO) on stage on October 4 at The Rodeo Club in San Jose, California to perform the UFO classic "Doctor Doctor".

"I just wanted my Schenker tribute guitar signed, [but] he invited me up [to] jam and then signed it while shredding," Demmel tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET.

Video footage of Demmel's appaearance with Schenker can be seen below.

Vocalist David Van Landing fronted Schenker's band on the recent North American tour, which kicked off on October 3 in Modesto, California. David stepped in for Robin McAuley, who was originally slated to take part in the trek after recently reuniting with Schenker for their first full tour together in almost 20 years.

Van Landing, who has previously done three tours with MSG and had a short stint with CRIMSON GLORY, said prior to the start of the trek: "I am just looking forward to getting out on the road again with the boys and seeing all my old friends and hopefully meet some new ones!!"

In addition to Schenker and Van Landing, the lineup for the tour included Pete Holmes on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitar and Elliott Rubinson on bass.

Schenker's latest album, "Temple Of Rock", was released in Europe on September 23, 2011 and in North America on October 11, 2011 on CD and LP through Schenker's own Inakustik label via MVD Entertainment Group.
