Words from REV: I want to apologize to all the fans that wrote to me and all the fans in JAPAN & THAILAND for the talentless guitar playing that took place on stage next to me at the last 3 MSG shows, I myself could not believe how bad SCHENKER played. Although ME, PETE, JARI, and WAYNE all gave 110%, in my eyes he gave less then 1% and that is so disrespectful not only to the band and the crew but also to the loyal MSG fans. So again I apologize for his actions because he would never apologize himself. We have 2 more shows and it is OVER.
best wishes

Words from REV: Whats shaking? First off I want to thank everyone for supporting us on the European tour and at all the festivals, you're the best. I played with MSG at the WACKEN festival last week to over 60,000 people, it was amazing, what a crowd. The highlight of the show for me was during my bass solo having 60,000 people clapping there hands together keeping time for me as I played "Eleanor Rigby", this is something I'll never forget. I also performed at the festival with KOTTAK (formerly KRUNK) and I played a song onstage with my favorite German band NIKKI PUPPET, both or these performances were also great. Aside from playing at the festival it was also great to be able to hangout with some of my friends that I have not seen in a while, NIBBS from SAXON, URIAH & REB from WHITESNAKE, KAI & DIRK from GAMMA RAY, METAL CHURCH, NIKKI PUPPET, WE, MIKKEY DEE from MOTORHEAD, DAVID from MORBID ANGEL, ELLIOT from DEAN GUITARS, ULI ROTH, and the SCORPIONS. What a party. We are now getting ready for the MSG North American tour that should kick off in September and go until the middle of November, followed by a short tour in Asia and back to the U.K. for a few shows. It should be a great tour. I will post the dates as soon as they are all confirmed. Again thank you to everyone that supported us, see ya on the road.

Words from REV: Whats shaking? I'm just getting re-adjusted from the GERMANY trip. The trip was great, we did a week of MSG rehearsals with the new singer JARI, and I'll tell ya the band is sounding better then ever. We also attended the Music Messe in Frankfurt Germany, which is like the European version of the NAMM show, where we met with a bunch of fans, did some signings, and hung out at the DEAN booth with both Schenker's Michael & Rudolf, it was great. We also played 2 shows while we were there, the first was a MSG cd listening party for only press, it was a very cool show, it was all press people but they were all getting into it just like a normal concert. The second show we did was a German T.V. show called ROCKPALAST, it was fantastic. Judging by these 2 shows I think the upcoming MSG tour will be a great success.
