SCORPIONS Guitarist RUDOLF SCHENKER - "We Don't Want To Be A Band From Yesterday"
September 12, 2018, 4 months ago
Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker says the band’s legacy in America is somewhat different from the rest of the world, particularly Europe. In the US, songs like "No One Like You", "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Still Loving You" are relegated to the dustbin of classic rock radio. Worldwide, Schenker said, they’re treated like any other rock band.
"When we play in Germany and in France, we have lots of young kids in the front rows, and the older ones are mostly in the back," he tells Tampa Bay Times. "We don’t want to be a band from yesterday. And that’s the situation why we’re still standing, why we have demand of people wanting us playing. After America, we go to Australia and New Zealand and China, and that’s fantastic."
