Michael Schenker is a German musician with a net worth of $6 million. Michael Schenker generated his worth as the guitarist of rock bands the Scorpions and UFO. He also formed The Michael Schenker Group. Schenker made his gig debut at the age of 11 with the Scorpions alongside his brother Rudolf. By the time he was 17, Schenker went on to feature on the band's debut album, Lonesome Crow. He then joined UK band UFO as lead guitarist, producing most of the music on the band's debut album, Phenomenon. After a turbulent time with UFO, Schenker left and rejoined the Scorpions in the late 1970s but left three months later. He set to start his solo career and formed The Michael Schenker Group in 1979. In 1986, the group was renamed McAuley Schenker Group after Schenker joined forces with rock singer Robin McAuley. The partnership lasted around six years before the two part ways and Schenker reformed The Michael Schenker Group in the early nineties before briefly rejoining UFO. After having a rough time with his marriage and his manager at the turn of the century, Schenker continue to produce albums under his group and tours extensively in North America and Europe. In 2010, Schenker received the Marshall "11" award in London.
Michael Schenker (born 10 January 1955, Sarstedt, Lower Saxony) is a German rock guitarist, best known for his tenure in UFO, in addition to his solo band. He first rose to fame as an early member of the Scorpions, then achieved fame in the mid 1970s as the lead guitar player for UFO. Since leaving UFO in 1978, he has been leading the Michael Schenker Group in various incarnations. He is the younger brother of Rudolf Schenker, who is still a guitarist with the Scorpions. His career has had many ups and downs, partly due to a long history of alcoholism and personal problems; still, Schenker continues to perform and record and to maintain a following, and is called "a legendary figure in the history of metal guitar."
Michael Schenker started playing guitar at an early age, after his brother Rudolf brought home a Gibson Flying V guitar, which captured his imagination. He played his first gig when he was 11, with Rudolf and the Scorpions in a nightclub. Schenker debuted with Scorpions on their debut album Lonesome Crow at age 17.
The Scorpions went on tour after recording their first album, opening up for upcoming UK band UFO in Germany. Schenker was offered the position of lead guitar player for UFO (taking over for Bernie Marsden, himself a temporary replacement for Mick Bolton) and, with the blessing of his brother, accepted (the Scorpions replaced him with Uli Roth), even though he didn't speak English.
Schenker wrote the music for most of UFO's major label (Chrysalis Records) debut album Phenomenon[citation needed]. His career with UFO was turbulent, sometimes walking off mid-song causing shows to be canceled. Despite having a series of successful albums and tours, Schenker finally left UFO soon after the last show of their US tour in Palo Alto, California, in October 1978; during this tour, the band recorded their seminal live album Strangers in the Night, which was released after he left the band.
