Sad tale of the Scorpions......

Anyone else feel this way? The Scorpions used to be one of my favorite rock/metal bands........killer riffs & vocals, mixture of great heavy rockers & ballads, duel guitars, great drums & bass, classic rock songs, great vibe......I put them near the top of the heap for metal bands in their heyday.

But, what the hell has happened to them? That last studio album, Eye to Eye, looked like a joke.....the cover showed an old Mattias Jabs, Rudolf Schenker (hardly recognizable) & Klaus Meine.....I sure as hell wouldn't put out a cd with a cover picture like that. Even Andrew (from Melodicrock.com) gave this cd a poor review, saying the Scorpions were trying to update there sound by being experimental......but probably not picking any new fans in the process & probably turning off older fans. I only heard one song, Mysterious, on the radio & it was pretty horrible. I had no desire to buy the cd.

I hope they get there @!#$ back together & put out a decent rock cd......I'm sick of these 80's metal bands trying to sound 90's or trying to be something they're not.
