Michael Schenker Slams The Scorpions

01/20/2016
.
(Classic Rock) Michael Schenker has slammed his old band Scorpions, saying they took advantage of him in his early days and that their decision to keep touring after their farewell concerts is "fooling people."

And Schenker, who had two stints with the band and left for good in 1979, has directed his ire towards his former bandmate and brother Rudy. Schenker tells Gigs And Festivals: "There are things that I know today, and I must say I'm actually very disappointed in my brother because I just found out that a lot of things have been incorrect in the past.

"Me, being seven years younger than the other guys, I think I was taken advantage of right from the beginning. I wrote most of the songs on Lonesome Crow and it was credited to all members.

"I was focusing on music, and they were maybe focusing on business. I have no idea, but they didn't know how to write songs in those days." Read more here.
