And I have been trying to get an answer about that on FB......I heard the same thing the interviewer did, that Matthias said in an interview that they were DONE. That they were not going to be coming back with reunion after reunion like another band he knew and he laughed, giving me the impression it may have been KISS he was talking about. I don't know, but MY recollection is that the band was fully retiring as Scorpions, THEN when they saw, as Matthias said later in ANOTHER interview, this "resurgence of fame", then is when they said they would just slow down the touring. I am trying to put this across as nice as possible cuz truly I am not wanting anyone to misunderstand me, I am simply curious if I heard what the interviewer heard, that at the beginning of their RETIREMENT announcement, we all heard that this was a done deal.
Thx for the translation cuz I too was very curious as to what he answered. However, if I may make an observation? He looked very uncomforable AFTER that question. My thots were that he did say that and he either didn't remember he said it OR he remembered he said it and now he had to dodge the bullet as we say here.
Lighten up Matthias, it's all good. So what if you said it and then later the band decided another course....that's what humans do, they change their minds. No biggee, yeah?
