Michael Schenker states, "We are very grateful to Bodo for being a team player and working out with Simon what needs to be done in order for us to continue as smooth as possible and also to Simon for helping us to make it all possible. Bodo is the perfect choice to continue as the permanent drummer for Michael Schenker Fest. It is a perfect balance between the musicians from the past. It includes everything as a family to continue MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST."
Bodo comments, " I am very sorry that Ted had to leave us under these tragic circumstances and I'm proud to rock for him and all the MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST fans. RIP Ted”
