SCORPIONS: Take a Page Out of the KISS Handbook
Like KISS, the Scorpions announced and went on a farewell tour -- and, like KISS, it doesn't look as though they're hanging it up anytime soon.
Singer Klaus Meine says, "As the emotion built, it [not retiring] became a gradual decision. It’s one thing to say, ‘This is going to be the end of the Scorpions’ and another to do it. Our Sting in the Tail album [from 2010] was such a success that a whole new generation of fans joined the party. It was amazing. And you know that with all the best parties, it’s sometimes hard to find the door.”
Up next for the German outfit is a new album with some material from the early '80s that they never released, and they're also talking about recording a complete new collection of songs.
