Scorpions are a rock band from Hannover, Germany formed in 1965 by guitarist Rudolf Schenke. They are known for their 1980s rock anthem “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and many singles, such as “No One Like You”, “Send Me an Angel”, “Still Loving You”, and “Wind of Change”. The band was ranked #46 on VH1’s Greatest Artists of Hard Rock program. Rock You Like a Hurricane is also #18 on VH1’s list of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. On January 24, 2010, after 46 years of performing, the band announced that they will be retiring after touring in support of their new album Sting in the Tail.  This decision has since been reversed. The band sold over 100 million albums worldwide.  — Wikipedia

The current band line-up is: Klaus Meine (Vocals), Rudolf Schenker (Guitars), Matthias Jabs (Guitars), James Kottak (Drums) and Pawel Maciwoda (Bass).
