UFO IS AT THE END WITHOUT MICHAEL SCHENKER

POP - July 1977 - from POP magazine

Before Michael Schenkers "Back and Forth in UFO" story began  POP made the Fan-Meeting possibile.
But first the Fans–four girls and eight boys-were invited by POP to a UFO show.

Michael Schenker was in Top-Form that night and it showed up once more what Insiders whispered for a long time already:

To UFO applies :

UFO IS AT THE END WITHOUT MICHAEL SCHENKER

Four UFOs sat among the Fans at the "Borsalino" Disco ready to answer the thousand questions.
Bass player Pete Way was too tired, excused himself and went to sleep. German Michael Schenker was naturally surrounded by a bunch of  admirers. Already on stage he affected eyes and ears like a Magnet. And now everyone wanted to speak to him. He has made no secret about his recent mood.
"Honestly we are all exhausted" - he declares dead-tired – "We need to go for a Holiday after such a Tour. But due to sensational sales of our last album ‘Lights Out’, the Management rushes us for another 2 Months USA Tour immediately. You can hardly imagine how this bloody travels and the eternal concert stress drives you up the wall”.

Michael looks aged and flabby as he says it.
His eyes lighten themselves again when Dani Schmid suprises him with chrome-plated Horseshoe.
The other UFOs get the good luck charm too. This will remind them about this Fan-Meeting.


Phil Mogg signs sweatshirts, photos and records and laughs :
"If this semicircular Thing really brings us Luck, then Number 1 Hit in America can not be far any longer………"
