For those of you saying, "Who is Uli Jon Roth?" let me be the one to say you've done yourself a huge musical disservice. Roth is the German Jimi Hendrix. Best known for his stint in Scorpions from '74 to '78, Roth played on arguably the four best Scorpions full-lengths (and one double-live album). His Fender tone and bluesy-classical style injected feel and soul into the Scorp's heavy rock 'n' roll before they morphed into an anthemic arena-rock band. While Schenker & Co. have given up on their '70s era, Roth apparently still plays some of those classic tracks. If that weren't enough to sell you, he will also be playing his Sky guitar. Roth had the guitar built some time in the '80s to his specifications, with extra frets to get to those hard-to-reach high notes. It's easy to say someone has reinvented the guitar, but Uli Jon Roth literally did it. ARIS WALES
