SCORPIONS Guitarist On Live Performances: 'We Don't Wanna Fade With Our Energy'

SCORPIONS guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs were recently interviewed on Poland's "Dzień dobry Polsko" TV show. You can now watch the segment below.

Asked if there are still things that a veteran band like SCORPIONS can learn from younger groups, Matthias said: "We never let go in terms of… we don't wanna fade with our energy. It is our goal to keep the same energy level up, and when we look at younger bands, it's good to see that we can keep up with them at anytime. So this is something we really watch out for — that we are not, all of a sudden, on stage looking old and standing around like boring people. We are very active, as we've always been."

SCORPIONS are currently promoting "Born To Touch Your Feelings - Best Of Rock Ballads", an essential anthology of the band's new and classic recordings, which was released on November 24 via Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

SCORPIONS' previous release was 2015's "Return To Forever", partially comprising songs the band had in the vault from the '80s. It was the final recorded appearance of SCORPIONS' longtime drummer James Kottak, who was dismissed from the band in September 2016. He has since been replaced by Mikkey Dee, formerly of MOTÖRHEAD.
