Former SCORPIONS drummer Herman "Ze German" Rarebell will take part in a special in-store appearance and performance on July 15 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Best Buy Superstore in Downers Grove, Illinois. Herman will sign autographs and show off his skills on the drum kit. A little over a week later, on July 24, Herman will perform alongside the MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP at this year's Rock N' America festival at the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheater in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Few metal drummers have a name as recognizable as Herman Rarebell. And with good reason. After all, it was Rarebell's drumming that helped propel the SCORPIONS into one of the 1980s' most successful rock bands (as well as co-penning the all-time classic "Rock You Like A Hurricane"). And Herman is back once more with his latest album, "Take It As it Comes", which was recently released via Dark Star Records.
A kick-ass, rockin' good time, the album is available as a standard version, as well as a limited-edition box set, which comes with two discs and a card autographed by Herman ze German himself.
The new single from "Take It As it Comes" is the appropriately-titled "Let Me Rock You", which was sent to radio on June 3.
Herman will be in the U.S. starting July 12 in New York City until July 30, ending in L.A., visiting radio and press nationwide supporting the new radio single.
Commented Herman: "I guess most of you guys know me as the former drummer of the SCORPIONS. Together with my friends Rudolf, Matthias, and Klaus, I enjoyed twenty truly awesome years of exhilarating rock and roll. We went through thick and thin, toured the world a couple times, and were awarded over 70 gold and 30 platinum records in addition to a bunch of other awards and prizes.
"It is my pleasure to tell you that my new solo CD, 'Take It As It Comes', is now available on Dark Star Records."
