I remember watching the video for The Scorpions’ “Rock You Like a Hurricane” on MTV as a kid and thinking, “Those guys are old!” That was in 1984 and I had no idea how old they really were.
This week, after 44 years together as a band, The Scorpions have announced that this is the end of the road…almost. In a statement on their website the band said it was packing it in but only after a final album — Sting In The Tail, to be released in March — and a tour that will start in Germany in May and take it across the world “over the next few years” (emphasis added).
So, you only have a few more years to fill your lungs with the winds of change. Best hop to it…or take your time.
