And what about Matthias? He's always holds slightly behind on the background of Rudy and Klaus. But at the same time one of the three base Scorps dinosaurs, which is very influenced on their musical path and style. And as I know he's simple guy, without any whimsey's and star fevers. Very interesting what Matthias's role in all of that?
Well Matthias is still close to Herman but he won't even acknowledge Francis anymore. He just calls him the bass player from the past. It's his loyalty to Rudy and Klaus since those two with Amends influence is still harboring resentment towards Francis.
Okay lets put our thinking caps on right now...The band sued Francis back in 1993 after the band was audited by the German government. And now 20 years later this case is still in court?? come on if there was proof Francis stole money this case would be a slam dunk. This whole thing is Amends idea. Think about it Francis was doing all the legal work for the Scorpions from 1974-1992 and guess who took over as the bands legal manager since 1992??? PETER AMEND!!!
If bands like Motley Crue,Van Halen,Judas Priest, KISS,Iron Maiden just to name a few can sue and break up as a band but get back together and have a great second life in the band why not the Scorpions????
Herman was on good terms with the band until he joined MSG with Francis..And now in 2013 Rudy is not talking to any of those three guys. Even his brother who he was so close too.. Maybe Rudy and Klaus are the ones who should move on and move forward..I know Matthias would have no problem with Herman and Francis returning to the band. It would make them alot of money..
Just imagine the concert flyer...THE RETURN OF THE CLASSIC LINEUP OF THE SCORPIONS!!! CD'S AND CONCERT TICKETS would sell out in a heartbeat all around the world..
All the people who never got to see this lineup back in their heyday would go and the people who witness this legendary lineup would go to the shows..INSTANT SELL OUTS!!!
