Wow ! I can post a topic again ! Glad that is fixed whatever it was. I have been on a Scorps fix lately big time and i have been wanting to post.
But after watching more vids and listening to some of my boot live concerts its hitting me that they wont be touring big time anymore and i highly doubt they will hit my area if they do a few shows. It really sucks. It might sound weird but no other band can fill that void. Its wild how one takes for granted that a band will be releasing an album and touring every three years or so. I feel lucky that i have seen them 7 times but if i knew how i feel now back then i would have traveled to see them more times...i know that sounds greedy because some fans in far corners of the world have never seen them but it still sucks. I thought i was going to be forever young and they would always be around. Denial is a strong thing. People get old and the world changes. But no one can replace this band. I was digging volbeat for a while but when i go back to Scorps stuff , there is no comparison.
Have alot more to say but ill try to refrain from starting multiple topics.
One thing that has been on my mind is how important Klaus is to the bands success. I know that goes without saying for most of us fans , but im a guitar freak so i dont really say enough about Klaus ....but i think his voice is why i really chose Scorpions over all other bands when i got into them years ago ( 82 ) . Hes a real singer not just another metal vocalist. And a cool down to earth guy.
Anyway , im glad to be kind of rediscovering the band again. Im so glad for youtube and all the recorded material they have. (Yes i buy the cds and songs on itunes. Youtube is for the rare stuff).We have their music for eternity !
Im still hoping for a box set with rare concerts on video like the mexico show in 94 and all of world wide live. You can watch alot on youtube but DVD or blueray is still better.
All i can say is im going through live Scorpions withdral cuz its been over three years since i have seen them live...we need to get that cloning technology expedited lol....
LOVE YOU SCORPIONS ! And fellow crazy fans !
