Mcauley Schenker Group

Did anyone ever have worse hair extensions than Michael Schenker? Little known Schenker fact..he briefly replaced Robbin Crosby in Ratt. Little known Robin McAuley fact...he is currently the lead singer in Survivor. Little known ES Furniss fact..I saw these guys in concert..but only because the Black Crowes were opening. Todays Rocktober feature artist is the McAuley Schenker Group.

You mean that wasn't his real hair? My favorite memory from that show is in the String Shoppe when one of MSG's roadies got pissed off over your excitement about the Black Crowes opening.

I'd completely forgotten about that! No one outside of us hard core music geeks were aware of who the Crowes were at that point. I was doing the record store thing and had a promo copy of Shake your Moneymaker. I enjoyed a couple beers with Chris Robinson and the boys at the Newport Bar after their show. Chris was great but Rich couldn't wait to get out of there. He HATED MSG.

I think all those extensions messed with Schenker. He is a complete emotional wreck these days. When he's not ranting and whining on his website he's canceling U.S. tours.

Hey I just remembered when you met Frankie Banali at Just Sweats! The Newport was such a great place to see a show. You never knew who you'd run into at the surrounding businesses.

That Banali autograph now resides in the Beer Cave along with many other mostly worthless pieces of cool junk...
