The Scorpions rule. We all know this to be *very* true. However, they tend to be one of the bands that float to the bottom of my playlist. I don't know why - just happens. Anyway, I've been on a pretty big Scorps bender lately and it dawned on me: I must see this band live.
According to Blabbermouth, the Scorpions will tour around the world for 40 dates and then come back to the U.S. for a pretty big run in 2010. Now, they would be just about my first choice to headline any U.S. festival - but especially Rocklahoma or Rock Gone Wild. You know what? I'd put them at Sturgis and Bonnaroo, too. Yeah, that's right: Bonnaroo.
My favorite Scorpions tunes are "Winds of Change" and "Rhythm Of Love."
I just bought Scorpions: Gold (Hip-O). It's a two disc set of all the biggest Scorpions songs, enabling me to hear 34 tracks without hunting through my CD case. That's huge.
Here's a clip of "Hurricane 2000"
