Sounds pretty dodgy to me.
Does this mean that every rock band should delay all their plans every time a disaster happens on the other side of the world?
Would anything ever get done?
I can't see that, at this stage in their career, the Scorpions will astound anyone with whatever announcement they plan to make if indeed one exists. What's the most they could do - headline a festival somewhere? If so, where? There's not many promoters would take them as headliners in established markets.
Perhaps there's to be a gig to mark the anniversary of the Wall coming down, though they're a bit late for that now. Maybe they've been invited back to do a performance of The Wall with Roger Waters in some ridiculous location. This would not be a huge compliment, as they would be playing the part of a cliched and tired rock band in the show, as they did last time in 1990 (I was at that gig, by the way
Maybe Michael is to come in as a full-time member. The 3-guitar thing worked for Iron Maiden, though all their guitarists are a little more professional than MS.
So - aside from an announcement that the Scorpions have achieved World Peace, or will give a free Gibson Explorer to everyone who attends their gigs this year - I'm not holding my breath.
Perhaps they're entering the Eurovision Song Contest this year.
OK - everyone get on with their lives now.
