New Interview with Klaus Meine

October 27th, 2014 by

The Scorpions’ official French fan-club, Crazyscorps recently conducted an interview with Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine, who is currently in Sweden recording the band’s new album,. In the audio clip below Meine speaks about the new Scorpions record, drummer James Kottak’s rehab process, feeling ridiculous on stage and his first groupie. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.

About the new record: “A few years ago, when we thought about this album, about putting out something for the die-hard fans, we were thinking about using some good old material from the 80′s, find some old diamonds and pearls, and we did ! But between 2011 and now, and even this year, we kept on writing. This album is not so much about old material, in the end it’s much more about new songs, and that feels really good.”

About drummer James Kottak’s rehab: “We told him ‘At this point, it’s good if you take a break, not so much for us but for yourself. And not so much about being the drummer of the Scorpions but for yourself being a family man. You should go into a rehab, clean out yourself and come back the same James we know for so many years, not only our drummer but also a friend, and a great guy.’”


October 25th- Happy 59th Birthday Matthias Jabs

“MTV Unplugged” album by the Scorpions goes gold!

October 14th, 2014 by


The Scorpions did it once again: The recording of their sensational MTV Unplugged in Athens cracked gold status! On September 11 and 12, 2013, Klaus Meine (vocals, guitar), Rudolf Schenker (guitar, vocals), Matthias Jabs (guitar), Pawel Maciwoda (bass), and James Kottak (drums) played the first open air MTV Unplugged session ever, delighting not only the fans at the Lycabettus Theater of Athens.

The presentation of the awards already took place in Füssen on August 29. Unfortunately, the long- time Scorpions manager Peter F. Amend was not able to attend the big success due to illness, and to everyone’s shock unexpectedly passed away a few days later. Apart from the band, the event was attended by the responsible representatives of Sony Music Germany, MTV Europe, RTL Music for Millions, the promoter of the German Scorpions “MTV Unplugged” tour Dieter Semmelmann, and the MTV Unplugged concert’s Greek promoter Tassos Alexopoulos.

Manfred Rolef (Vice President AOR Label Group GSA): “Everything the Scorpions touch turns to gold, just like their MTV Unplugged album now. We are happy to have reached gold status and are now heading towards platinum! We would also like to thank MTV Europe and the media group RTL Music for Millions for the great collaboration.”

Mara Ridder-Reichert (Director Talent & Music Northern Europe MTV, VIVA, VH-1, TMF) comments on behalf of MTV: “The collaboration of all parties involved in this exceptional MTV Unplugged project was very intense. MTV and the Scorpions both are worldwide brands, which managed to make the MTV Unplugged of a German band successful all over the world. We can build on this success now.” Her colleague Sebastian Kahlich (Head of Sales MTV and VIVA) adds: “The brand MTV Unplugged in Germany once again proved being a recipe for success. Thanks  to the Scorpions for the great collaboration, to Sony Music, and the colleagues at RTL.”

Uli Mücke (Music for Millions) states: “Being one of the first projects of the label, founded by media group RTL in 2013, Music for Millions is especially happy about this joint success with Sony Music and Viacom.”

“MTV Unplugged” by the Scorpions is available as 2CD, DVD, Blu-ray, vinyl, Limited Tour Edition, Limited Amazon Box, Limited Saturn Edition, iTunes Exclusive, and download.
