Former SCORPIONS drummer Herman Rarebell will present the German version of his audio book, "My Life as a Scorpion", on stage together with voice-imitator and radio link man Klaus Götsch on January 19 at Epach Theater in Babenhausen, Germany. "Apart from some live drumming you will also see and hear some rare film footage that I will show you on a huge cinema screen!" says Rarebell.
To order a copy of the audiobook (which is presently only available in the German language; an English translation will follow soon) or if you'd like to order tickets for the show, write to [email protected]
Herman Rarebell's video for the song "Heya Heya" can be viewed below. The song comes off Rarebell's "I'm Back" CD, which was released under the moniker HERMAN RAREBELL AND BAND. According to a press release, the album is sure to please Rarebell's longtime fans as it features a broad scope of catchy new rock songs, as well as a new version of the classic SCORPIONS hit "Rock You Like a Hurricane", a song that Rarebell co-wrote with fellow SCORPIONS members Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker.
Rarebell's band features his wife, Claudia Raab (saxophone), James "Duke" Jackson (guitars, also in STRIKEFORCE), and lead vocalist Stefan Erz.
In a recent interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Rarebell stated about the huge commercial success of SCORPIONS' 1982 album "Blackout", "Mercury Records was totally behind us and they believed in us. They wanted us to keep making albums. They wanted us to grow and do better each time out. 'Lovedrive' went gold. 'Animal Magnetism' went gold and then 'Blackout' was the first one to go platinum. Schenker/ Meine/ Rarebell was a great songwriting team. You can see that from how many successful albums we had. After I left the band, they didn't have any more hits."
