Michael Schenker Group Singer Killed In Traffic Accident
A family statement reads: "The immediate family of Dave VanLanding asks for your understanding and respect as we deal with the loss of David. The family will make an announcement once more details are known and arrangements are made. He was a great friend and touched so many millions of lives through his music and his kindness."
VanLanding joined Mannekin in the 80s and following their split in 1990, went out on the road with Tony MacAlpine on his Eyes Of The World tour. The singer took up vocal coaching before hooking up with Crimson Glory for live dates in 1993. He went on to form Erotic Liquid Culture before auditioning for the Michael Schenker Group in the mid-90s.
He did three tours with MSG and appeared on 1997 double album The Michael Schenker Story Live, recorded on the band's tour of Japan the same year. Read Schenker's statement here.
