What's pathetic, Val, is that they are fully aware how much they use us and how much they can get out of us and I finally realized this. Yes I still love their music, it still touches my soul...BUT I can no longer condone this band who I know for a fact just uses fans and other folks that are and have been in their lives. So now, P, you can keep trying to get recognition from them, but in the end, you mean nothing absolutely nothing to them. And you will fall by the wayside and you will not be remembered. Guaranteed! Now run run run P, and go tell Matthias what I said cuz I know you.
But guess what? It no longer matters to me. UNLESS Jabs sits me down and tells me they aren't the band I have come to realize they are, which believe me will NEVER happen
then your so called work, your interview, your photos, it's all so moot. It's all so stupidly ridiculous cuz THEY DON'T GIVE A S**T!!! And someday all of you will see that the band has been so less than honorable with us.
Someone told me that if I publically say these things that I am burning my bridges....what bridges? I never had any in the first place....everything I did was for free and totally and completely EXPECTED that I would be a chump and be used as much as I allowed it. Well I am not allowing it anymore...the next time I do ANYTHING for a band, it will be strictly professional and I WILL get paid for it and never be fooled into thinking they care two cents for me personally.
The unfortunate thing? I thought they were different;... but I was blinded just like all of you are. I also thought that I had "friends" in Matthias and James. HA! That is heartwrenching to me to admit that they wore masks with me as well as all of you. Yes, I will still read the forum to see what else they are up to, I will even add my two cents worth on some occasions....but for the most part, Scorpions are needing to become my past. NOT their music!! Never their music! But as a band that I support? It's so long and thanks alot boys!!
I really believed in you!!!
Maybe you all need to really wake up and instead of slamming Herman, start to open your eyes to what he is saying, yeah? And he is not the only one.....so many fans, oh my gosh so many fans have had similar s**t happen to them. Oh well, it's done and believe me, I will NOT buy their new album and give them MY money!
Sorry, I am spouting, but dammit, I thought they were the real deal!!
And P, wake up, your "work" as you call it, means nothing. You are a joke, a laughable joke to them. As was I!
BTW, it was nothing any of them did to me personally, I have just talked enough to folks that this band has totally used and abused and it's just disgusting the things I know now. Nuff said.....
