Guitar legend Uli Jon Roth
Lead guitarist in the band of Scorpions during their most creative years when they were established as one of the best rock bands worldwide, he appeared on historical albums “Fly to the Rainbow” (1974), “In Trance” (1975), “Virgin Killer” (1976), “Taken by Force” (1977), “Tokyo Tapes” (1978).
He lived the glory with the Scorpions’ band as a songwriter and he was established internationally as a pioneer master of electric guitar .
Audiences and critics have nominated him as Jimi Hendrix’s successor. Each record in his solo career is a milestone and reference point in the history of rock-class music. He has collaborated with the world’s most famous rock artists in his five-decade career. As a guest in Classic rock 3 he will interpret Scorpions and not only!
After Phil Collins retired, Ray Wilson took over as a composer and singer of Genesis and recorded with the giants of rock the album “Calling All Stations” – one of the band’s biggest success – which took off with a successful European tour and their prominent presence at the famed “Rock am Ring” and “Rock am Park” festivals.
With more than 20 years of career, Classic Rock Magazine has recognized him as one of the best UK singers ever. The “GENESIS CLASSIC” project, in collaboration with the Berlin Symphony Ensemble, is a special moment of his career that still gives him sold out appearances all over the world. Ray Wilson interpreted the song “Inside” with the rock band “STILTSKIN”, one of the most recognizable rock songs of all time.
