McAuley Schenker Group was a band featuring core members Robin McAuley (vocals) and Michael Schenker (guitar), a successor to Schenker's earlier band Michael Schenker Group. McAuley was initially contacted to replace singer Gary Barden in MSG. However, the strong partnership immediately formed between McAuley and Schenker brought to the change of the name from Michael Schenker Group to McAuley Shenker Group, retaining the same initials of the previous band MSG. The band, composed of German, Irish and British members, relocated in Los Angeles, trying to exploit the increasing popularity of hard rock and glam metal in the USA. They released three studio albums, one EP and an acoustic live album before disbanding. Their first album Perfect Timing was released in 1987, and included their first hit "Gimme Your Love". Two years later, Save Yourself was released, giving this incarnation of MSG its biggest hit with the power ballad "Anytime". M.S.G. followed in 1992 and "Unplugged" Live came out in 1993.
After the 1992 tour with a strictly acoustic set and the release of the unplugged live, in 1993 McAuley and Schenker went on separate ways, the first getting married and retiring from the music scene for a few years, the latter working on his first solo album and eventually reforming the Michael Schenker Group in 1996.
When McAuley left Survivor he started again cooperating with Schenker. 26 shows are planned all over the U.S.A. for February/March 2012.
