Thomas do you have an address where I can send a Thank You letter to the Scorpions? I typed this review from last year.
I want to thank the Scorpions for coming to Northern California!
The Scorpions are one of my all time favorite bands & I'm always so glad when they come around! You never let me down! Unbreakable is such a great album(CD)!
I won the Ticketmaster Auction for the Sacramento & San Jose shows & bought tixs of Ebay for the Reno show. I got the honor of meeting the Scorps at all 3 shows!
I was trying to get as many fans email addresses at the shows as I could. So I could share pictures I took with everyone.
I started a link were I uploaded all my Sacramento & San Jose pictures.I'll be uploading my front row pics from Reno soon too!
Here's the link:http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Scorps2004/
Please feel free to share you pictures here,post a link & or email me at:email@example.com
Meeting the band with all the other fans was great...everyone was so nice & excited! Everything happened so fast...I just tried to get something signed & a quick picture. I also took a lot of pictures of other fans too with them!
At the Sacramento show I told them I'd see them in San Jose & Reno again! I had Rudolph & Klaus sign my "Lonesome Crow" Germany LP. & also got my Love at First Sting signed too!(Jimmy Bain & Simon Wright played on 1st sting but didn't get credit)
After the Sacramento show I went to the Roadhouse for the after show party with Frank Hannon's Kaliedoscope....it was fun & Pawel should up! I got home at 4am!
In San Jose my friend Meredith came & they remembered me from the Sacramento show. I got my picture with them at the Sacto show blown up to an 8x10 & got it signed!
I still had a lot of Scorps stuff to get signed...but knew I could only get 1 or 2 things signed...George & his daughters Samatha & ? offered to take one of my LPS each & get it signed! And they did, that was so cool!
I got to meet James's wife Athena & told them hi from my friend Linda McDonald(Drummer for the Iron Maidens). I went to the Britannia Arms after the show to see Teeze"80's Metal" tribute band.
At the Meet & greet for the Sacramento & San Jose shows they came out & mingled with the fans & then we lined up for a picture with the band.
But at the Reno show they all were seated at a long table...When my turn came up I went up to Rudolph & he says"Where did you get that shirt?" I was wearing my In Trance T-Shirt. I told him Ebay.
Rudolph had me come around to the otherside of the table & signed my shirt!!! Rudy told Klaus to check my shirt out too! It was so cool!
I tried to tell them how grateful & awesome they are. It's sure a lot harder to talk when you're so excited! I did get to tell James how much I liked "Someday is Now" he wrote all the lyrics.
After the Reno show my brother & I waited around with this guy"Wolf" from NJ & didn't leave until 1am!
All the live shows were FANTASTIC...I was kind of hoping for an extra song...But I'm Soooo glad I got to see them at all!
It was so cool being upfront for Reno...I got eye contact from them all & it made me feel really good. I loved singing along with all the songs & rockin' out!
Klaus sounds just as good as he did 20 years ago...He's one of the all time best vocalists in the WORLD!
Rudolph is an animal onstage!
Mathias what a killer guitarist - I really liked the solo before Big City Nights!
James is such a great & fun drummer!
Pawel fits in perfect & I could tell he was having fun!
I don't know how they do it...I only went to 3 shows & had aday of rest in between all 3....The Scorpions Kicked my A**!
The 1st time I got to see them was April 21,1984 at Cal Expo,Sacramento,CA & I've seen them everytime they came around after that!
CAN'T GET ENOUGH of the Scorpions!
I'm on the shorter side & had some what long hair Brown/Black/Blonde...I was wearing a black Scorpions T shirt at all the shows & black long shorts with black boots & spiked wrist bands & my DIO bag.
