SCOTTTTT, I AM SO STOKED ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE!! WHAT A SHOW, YEAH? And I am very very glad that you enjoyed yourself and that you thot the boys put on a great concert AND MJ recognized you (which I am not surprised, as he has a brilliant memory!!) and threw you a special pick!! kudos buddy!! Oh and of course the sticks!!!! woohooo
Anyway, it's good to hear that there may be future shows in the U.S., HOWEVER, we all know where those will be, eh? haha Sorry just kidding sorta sarcastically.
BUT, I do get sorta melancholy to think of never seeing them again. They have given us so many soundtracks of our lives, whether it's been 30 years for some or just a few for others, or even a few months in some cases...they have left an indelible impression on us all and have given us memories to last us a lifetime. They have given of themselves so far and beyond most rockstars, and even tho their fans can have their fights and differences, these boys have dug deep into our hearts and souls and wrapped us in the moments of a miilion years to make us warm for the rest of our lives reliving everything we each have experienced individually with them, in our own way. I do wish to give my apologies to those who have never seen them, I am not trying to be insensitive. I so hope and pray that they will yet still do sthg for those countries.
Thank you our precious bad boys, we will rawk with you forever cuz your music will never die! And even tho you are at the final crossroads of your career, you have made such an impact on so many musicians who have created their own tribute bands, that your music will live on forever with these bands and of course with the youngsters who grew up with parents that love you and your music and who have been instilled with the true sense for the love of music, but especially YOUR music. Be proud my boys, be very proud of what you have accomplished. And while for whatever reason, other bands are given more recognition and accolades than you are, be assured that your legacy will go down in history and your infamy will create a special place in the world of rock music. Your name, Scorpions, will be one of the few iconic rock bands who deserve to be up there at the top of the industry. And altho, you have been snubbed in some ways and highly underrated and undeserved ignorant lack of respect from some countries AHEM!, you still have so much
to be proud of and to hold your heads up high and know that you made a difference in millions of lives.
So, will we see you again? Only time will tell....but in the meantime, in the words of an old song by fellow humanitarian, Bob Hope, "thanks for the memories". And in YOUR words, we will "always love you"!!!
sigh....sorry for the ramblings.... sentiment got to me!!
