I can speak only for germany, of course. But concerning germany, Scott is absolutely right. Remember the interview Klaus gave on Deutsche Welle. There he said:
With the huge success in the U.S. even the germans noticed the band and they had the chance to play big concerts even in germany
I remember when I saw them for the first time on german TV. Now I found out it was in 1984 at the german TV Show 'Formel Eins'. And there the announcer said 'Hey look, there's a german band, succesful in the U.S. and we nearly don't know them'.
Just to be complete: I saw them already before on TV in the 70s in the german show 'PopRock', but before I came to this forum here I didn't know that this band has been the Scorpions. That means - if you read between the lines - I love their music beginning with the Matthias Jabs era
Well said Hans.... It was Matthias that turned the Scorpions into a success all around the world..
