German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS have announced their North American “Crazy World” tour with very special guest MEGADETH.

Since performing a handful of festivals and concerts last year in the U.S., the band will return to North America for a month-long run of dates.

“When our album ‘Crazy World’ was released back in ’91, right at the end of the cold war, we toured around a world that was pretty crazy back then, but there was so much hope in the air for a more peaceful future,” said SOCRPIONS singer Klaus Meine. “Now, 26 years later, things are getting more crazy every other day. After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there.”

 

Happy 50th Birthday to Pawel Maciwoda

Scorpions drummer Mikkey Dee confirmed last night that the German titans are to release a brand new studio album in early 2018 and continue rocking global audiences.

Mikkey told a press conference at the Hall Of Heavy Metal History induction ceremony that The Scorps, who celebrated fifty years of existence with one of their biggest tours ever last year, have already started working on new music and the forthcoming songs are as exciting and as vibrant as ever, just as you would expect.

The Swedish beatmeister, often referred to by Lemmy as “the best drummer in the world”, also confirmed that the band are on a much needed break at the moment but will reconvene later in the year to record their brand new opus, their first with Mikkey who was Motörhead drummer for twenty-three years.

Expect a brand new Scorpions album and another mega world tour coming your way in 2018.

Happy 54th Birthday James Kottak

BackstageAxxess interviews Klaus Meine of The Scorpions

December 5th, 2016 by

On November 10, BackstageAxxess conducted an interview with singer Klaus Meine of German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

Speaking about the departure of longtime drummer James Kottak — who was dismissed from the band during his well-publicized his battle with alcoholism — and addition of former MOTÖRHEAD member Mikkey Dee, Klaus said: “With Mikkey, it’s fantastic. It really gives the band a fresh shot of energy. Mikkey, [he] joined this band where we just played the big encore. And at the end of this year, we all need a break. And Mikkey is, like, ‘C’mon, guys. We’ve gotta keep going. This is so fantastic. We have such a good time. The fans are amazing around the world. And let’s keep going.’ And we say, ‘Okay.’ But at this point, we’ve played everywhere. We’ve been everywhere — we’ve played all continents, and even in Australia. So at the end of this tour, we all need a break. But, of course, we will pick it up at some point, because it really feels great with Mikkey.”

He continued: “James [had] been with us for twenty years; it’s such a long run. And we’re still in touch, and it’s great to hear from him. He’s feeling much better now and he’s getting back on track. We said to him, ‘James, it’s so important… You’re a healthy guy. You’re the guy we all love so much — the band, your family, the fans — so you’ve gotta really take care of yourself and really think of you first and your health situation. So he went into a long rehab and was really taking it serious and really taking care about himself. And we gave him all the support we can give him. And it looks like he’s really in a good way, and his health at the end of this year is so much better than it’s been ever before. So that’s really good.”

Klaus added: “But what can I say? There came a point in the spring when we had to make this decision and really what’s great is that Mikkey came in and joined the band. He’s a great drummer, a great musician, a very powerful drummer and very well respected after more than twenty years with MOTÖRHEAD. It’s all about attitude, and he’s a great guy. The chemistry between us worked right away. We had a great time between when we played the Carolina Rebellion in early May until now. We had a lot of fun, and the SCORPIONS fans welcomed Mikkey. And at the same time, they’re sending their thoughts and prayers to James, which is a wonderful thing.”
