Hey Roberta... Wow !!!
Excellent job! I am really happy you made it this BIG ! I can see how do you feel after this, it came in my mind when we used to discuss such subjects...
In my opinion there were lots of people waiting for this kind of NEWS from the band, everybody may have his own way of expressing feelings, but I do think there were really a huge amount of people waiting for this decisison from the band. Myself I consider it a good and acceptable decision. I mean it was the only one. When Rock'n'Roll is growing up again and it is basicly going up where it belongs, why one of the most significant realities of Hard Rock, should cut itself out ?
Retirning anouncement may have been questionable, I do think so. From one hand it is Ok to go around a table and consider the fact that even you are doing great, - for me that band was doing excellent since 2004, - this won't last forever. From the other hand there were too many things that made people think that the band can't call it quits right now. Myself, I was sure it was not gonna happen. Basicly because I do consider the band good enough to keep it going on for some more. They have got the skill, they've got the means, they got the experience to do it the best way.
I would have been glad with a different approaching way. You could treat it as easy as it is: We want to say to our fans and supporters, for obvious reasons we will continue doing our job in a different way. We are sure you all understand our point. I know sometimes I am a little bit too naiv, but in this way nowadays (I am having the chance to travel the world lately, and wherever I go I see people saying that these are difficult times) maybe they would have had even better results, if this was a strategy. But I don't think so. I see the whole thing in a different way. Rudolf has always been the one to push it beyond any limits. The others have followed just because it was always fun and success, because they know how to do it. So if you find yourself in front of a sold out venue, it is natural to think Why should this be the end ???? I was not really happy with that anouncement, as I said before, but It would have been way too much worse if for any strange reason - ( like pride, or other strong feelings ) - they would have let it go like that. Just one more thing....
LONG LIVE ROCK 'N' ROLL....Hey guys you got a lot of Screaming Rock Believers out there waiting for you.
P.s. interesting point from Scott, letting go 2013 and reflecting on to do's after. If the strong will of the fans made them think, well my all times wish is :
3 DVD SET:
- TOKYO TAPES
- WORLD WIDE LIVE
- FAREWELL TOUR (Whenever it will be)
I can accept even Non 3D/Blue Ray...
I like MERCEDES and PORSCHE as well, but SCORPIONS are the best german engine
They are UNBREAKABLE !!!
