Profile Bio Text
Rudolf Schenker is a German guitarist and founding member of heavy metal band Scorpions, being the rhythm/lead guitarist and one of the main song-writers of the band.
After starting out with a Fender Stratocaster, Schenker is primarily known for playing Gibson Flying Vs and, more recently, Dean Vs. In the Acoustica DVD, he is seen playing an acoustic Flying V made especially for him by Dommenget. He now uses Dean acoustic V models.
In an interview on the `World Wide Live` video, he mentioned that his goal is not to become the best or fastest guitarist, but to be a very good composer.
In most Scorpions songs, guitar solos are performed by lead guitarist Matthias Jabs, but there are exceptions, in which Rudy makes the solos, such as "Wind of Change", "Always Somewhere", "Still Loving You", "As Soon as the Good Times Roll", "Through My Eyes" "Coast to Coast" (second solo) and "Big City Nights".
His younger brother Michael Schenker was a member of Scorpions in the band`s earliest inception, before joining the band UFO.
