Scorpions To End Career

07:01 AM Sunday 1/24/10 |   |

The German rock band Scorpions is bringing down the curtain on a career spanning more than four decades.

The band, known for its early 1990s hit "Wind of Change" among others, said on its Web site Sunday that "we agree we have reached the end of the road."

It said it would end its career with 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."

Guitarist Rudolf Schenker founded the band in Hannover in 1965. Singer Klaus Meine joined a few years later. Both men are 61.

    Such anger! It is pretty uncool to respond to criticism of a band you enjoy much by attacking other bands. Do you know if this Stockbroker even likes these bands? Better perhaps to ignore such a troublemaker than pay him so much attention, no?

    Scorpions are a fine group and we are proud of them in Germany, but they are perhaps not the best we have produced or even one of the best of history. But this is just one opinion of many.

    As a great German thinker said, "Wer es unternimmt, um sich selbst zum Richter über Wahrheit und Wissen wird durch das Lachen der Götter Schiffbruch erlitten." (It means when you begin to act as the giver of truth, the gods will find you amusing.) Die Ruhe jetzt!

    you, Stockbroker!  If you don't like the band, why did you even stop by this post?  Who do you listen to, Elvis Costello?  Piss off, ***!!  They are one of the great bands of all time & deserve a lot more respect than someone like you showed.  Wanker.

    Yes, Its a sad day for the mentally impaired. Next thing you know, Glen Campbell will be doing a come back tour.

    this is sad...one of the greatest bands of all time....but they will still be touring for at least two more years and have a new album coming out this spring. Their last album, from a couple years back,  'Humanity-Hour 1' is one of the best of the decade.

     Yea,who knows? Gosh knows a band can sell more tickets if people know its their last chance.I'm sure the band is seriously considering it.They will pry miss it after awhile though.Would be great if Uli Roth and MSG opened for them.Then have Uli and Michael come out  separately on choice tunes.

    One of my favorites also and I was lucky enough to be a part of a meet and greet a few years ago. It would be nice if they could make that opportunity available again to fans this time around. They are great guys and will be missed. On the other hand, I'm sure they want to go out while they still got it. AND THEY STILL F*****N' GOT IT!!!!! DON'T MISS THEM FOR THE LAST TIME!!!!

    Sad Day - Scorpions are one of my favorites. I will see them many times during this final tour. They put on an awesome show every time. They will be missed
