Guitarist EMIL WERSTLER Quits CHIMAIRA
Guitarist Emil Werstler has decided to leave CHIMAIRA after a three-year tenure with the band. Werstler spent the first few months playing bass for CHIMAIRA, but switched back to his original instrument in 2012 following the announcement that guitarists Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries were leaving the group at the end of 2011. Emil, best known for his gypsy jazz-infused guitar playing with LEVI/WERSTLER and DÅÅTH, has issued the following statement about his departure: "My time in CHIMAIRA has, unfortunately, come to an end. It is time for me to move on as I continue to focus on harvesting my abilities as a musician. "I'm very fond of everyone in the band and wish them all the best in the future. "Although this was a difficult choice to make, I feel it was necessary in order to take the next step in my career. The best is still yet to come and I'm very excited for the multiple projects I am working on. "I would like to thank the band, management, and, most importantly, all the fans for the endless support and understanding." Werstler is featured on CHIMAIRA's seventh studio album, "Crown Of Phantoms", which sold around 7,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 52 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on July 30, 2013 via eOne Music.
MICHAEL SCHENKER's Guitars Stolen From Recording Studio In Germany
Sometime between 6 p.m. on Friday, August 29 and 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 31 at Kidroom Studios in Greven, Germany, where Michael Schenker is recording the new TEMPLE OF ROCK album, "Spirit On A Mission", thieves broke in and stole and number of Schenker's Dean Flying V and Michael Voss' guitars. At the moment, the full extent of what has been stolen is being assessed and the crime scene fingerprinted. However, Schenker's brand new Chrome V is one of the guitars that have been taken. A source close to the band said: "The Dean Chrome V is one of only three ever made. Michael's version is unique and made to his own specifications. There is not another like it, so it will be hard to sell." German police are examining evidence and the studio for fingerprints and DNA evidence to help catch the criminals. There will be more details once the extent of the damage and a thorough inventory has been taken at the crime scene. Anyone with any relevant information is asked to contact the Greven Police Station on +49 2571 9280. MICHAEL SCHENKER'S TEMPLE OF ROCK's last CD, "Bridge The Gap", featured Michael Schenker alongside vocalist Doogie White, guitarist/keyboardist Wayne Findlay, bassist Francis Buchholz and drummer Herman Rarebell. The effort marked the first time Schenker and fellow ex-SCORPIONS members Buchholz and Rarebell appeared on the same album since the classic 1979 SCORPIONS LP "Lovedrive".
