Another new California Scorpions gig

2007-09-16 Indio, CA, USA Fantasy Springs Casino

Houston Michael Schenker Group gig cancelled

I had a bad feeling all day. And my fears came true. I just got back from the Scout Bar. Michael Schenker canceled the gig there. The person in charge at the Scout Bar said that he got on a plane yesterday and flew home. So, the rest of the tour may be in jeopardy as well. Call your venue for any upcoming shows and find out before you drive a long way.

I was so looking forward to this show. I even got my two Lonesome Crow LPs out to get them signed by Schenker. It would have been a great gig. Maybe he will reschedule. I hope everything is OK with Michael.

Update: Dallas (07/01/2007) was canceled too. Thanks Lindzee!

I just found out about a new Matthias Jabs Website. It has lots of pictures of his guitars, a discography, and lots of history. However, it is in German. I have also added this to the links page. Enjoy!

Maybe the Scorps Don’t Need a US Label

Here is an interesting article from CBS News about a big band not having a record label and releasing a CD on their own. Maybe the Scorpions don’t need a record deal in the states.
