Hi ,
It is such a great feeling to be back in the studio and creating something new and genuine. As early as the first recording day with my band mates I realized, pure creativity is in the air. I am sure that our new album will surprise all our fans. We are up to something big, so let your curiosity get the best of you!

Best Rudolf

Hello ,
Now that our “Humanity World Tour” is over and we toured the world twice very successfully, it is time to record new songs, to write new songs -songs that come from the heart and relate to our fan’s emotions around the world. I am very excited about recording our new album with lots of energy and feeling. As always though, the bar is set very high, especially as I like to measure it with our albums “Blackout” and “Love at First Sting”.

Sincerely yours, Matthias

Scorps version of Dust in the Wind

Here a blog post from Bring Back Glam which discusses the Scorpions cover of “Dust in the Wind”.

Kansas recorded “Dust in the Wind” way back in 1977 (about a year after “Carry On Wayward Son”). It became the band’s signature song and is still played in heavy rotation on classic rock radio today. “Dust In the Wind” is both melancholy and fabulous. When played live, the song always evokes a positive emotion from the audience. With such a famous song, covers are inevitable. But what happens when the cover is better than the original?

The mighty Scorpions covered the song and included the track on Acoustica.

Happy 61st Birthday to Rudolf Schenker

On behalf of, we would like to wish Rudolf Schenker a very happy and wonderful 61st birthday. Thanks for continuing to put out rocking music! Best wishes!
