Prior to recording their sixth studio LP, 1979's 'Lovedrive,' Scorpions had two main problems: Finding major success outside their native Germany and hanging onto a lead guitarist. Fortunately for the band, both issues would soon be solved.
Ultimate Classic Rock is pleased to present the exclusive video premiere of a dramatically re-imagined version of one of the Scorpions' most well-known classics, ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane,' taken from their ‘MTV Unplugged’ performance.
It’s 8:00AM as we connect with Scorpions vocalist Klaus Meine to chat about their new ‘MTV Unplugged’ release. But Meine is already way ahead of us at that point, because he’s at home in Germany where it is 2:00PM and he’s settled in for a full slate of interviews that day. He’s wide awake and it’s hard not to get sucked in by the audible enthusiasm in his voice that comes across the phone line.
This is it -- the first big Hall of Fame battle of 2014. Scorpions and Styx have reached the final round of Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame for January. It's now up to you to decide who gets the crown.
On Jan. 21, Scorpions will release a DVD/CD of their first-ever appearance on 'MTV Unplugged.' To celebrate, Ultimate Classic Rock, Loudwire and Noisecreep have teamed up with Sony to give a copy away to one lucky winner.
