I never got the Scorpions. Their songs were meh and you couldn't understand a word they said in interviews.

@czar - gesundheit.

you being younger is always interesting when it comes to music. By this time in my life I was married and for some reason missed all this. love the visual and love the German mix in with the haiku.

now going to youtube to hear some of the Scorpians.

Good afternoon Moi,

You know I can't say whether I've ever heard their music or not. I guess I'll have to follow Boxer over to U-tube and find out.

The album cover is pretty cool. I know I've never seen it, she would've caught my attention. Although having not been in a record store since Led Zeppelin was topping the charts may explain how I missed it.

Czar: Only I would have worn the jacket to cover that side boob. Just sayin' . . .

Buzz: I actually interviewed them about 15 years ago for a story. Their accents are VERY thick. Suffered through the concert, went backstage, snapped a few photos, realized this was by no means the 1980s anymore, and went home. I was asleep by 11 p.m. I think they were, too.

Boxer: What's my age again? Sometimes, I forget. Sometimes, I remember. Oh, do I remember.

Karl: This cover has always seemed slightly wonky to me. Like, unscrambling all the hands and feet, and what is her right arm doing over there, and what happened to her feet? And this was way before PhotoShop, too.

It is official.
I am ancient.

I can still laugh at Buzz humor.

Ooh my German is sooo rusty. Cool photo, but the hands are Very distracting, like you say. First you get one impression, then you are left with Huh?

Dnno the group, I was never very attentive to who sang, only if I liked it or not.

Nice touch with the Haiku.

Aha hahaha. Oh, clever play with the German here.

I answered your comment on my blog, btw. For some reason, I failed to comment initially.

Hey, I posted scorpions too. Did you post Rock me like a hurricane first? Sorry if you did.

Hey Grins, not sure. I didn't see your Scorpions haiku!
