Rock Will Never Die [Bonus Track]

Overview

By the fourth year of MSG's existence, Michael Schenker had hired and fired half of the metal musicians in Europe and North America (or at least it seemed that way), so when the supporting cast had pretty much checked out and Schenker reclined into a three-year hiatus, Chrysalis scrambled to release this, the "band's" second live album in two years. With just nine tracks -- most of which were already featured on the superior One Night at Budokan -- Rock Will Never Die is a questionable affair at best. Of the four songs not featured on their prior live opus, only the splendid shred-fest "Captain Nemo" is of any interest. The first-time-live versions of songs culled from the much-maligned 1983 studio recording Built to Destroy are hardly worth the price of purchase. Considering all this, and the record's generally unremarkable sonics, there is just no sensible reason to recommend Rock Will Never Die to even the most devoted of Schenker enthusiasts.
