Michael Schenker es uno de los músicos que sentaron las bases de el Heavy Metal. Su guitarra siempre valiente, toma el protagonismo de las canciones con un tono inconfundible, nítido, cargado de seguridad y de precisión. Sus solos son largas historias con principio y final en las que no sobra una sola nota. Se trata de un músico que tiene la música en la cabeza, y en los dedos habilidad suficiente para producirla. Durante su carrera en UFO dejo todo lo mejor de su faceta compositiva, aunque como interprete ha seguido tocando sus canciones como nadie sino el puede entenderlas. Desde su salida de UFO no ha encontrado quien le entienda a la hora de meter las voces a sus canciones tan bien como Phil Mogg, con lo que es posible que parte de su talento para la composición  se halla desperdiciado. Michael Schenker is one of the musicians who laid the foundations of the Heavy Metal. His always valliant guitar, takes the role of songs with an unmistakable tone, clear and clean,  loaded with safety and precision. His solos are long stories with a beginning and end in which not spare a single note. This is a musician who has music in his head, and enough skill in his fingers to bring it out. During his career at UFO he developed all the best of his compositional side, later as a performer he has continued to maintain a very high level, playing his songs like no one but he can understand. Since his departure from UFO he did not find a singer who understud his music as well as Phil Mogg, so it is possible that part of his talent for songwriting is wasted.
