(Classic Rock) Michael Schenker has expanded on his reasons for not being able to trust his brother Rudolf. The guitarist said earlier this year that he was "disappointed" in older brother Rudolf over the narrative he and Scorpions had created about the writing and recording of 1979 album Lovedrive.

Michael added that Scorpions took advantage of him and took credit for his songwriting efforts. Now the younger Schenker tells The Metal Voice that Rudolf convinced him to sign over songwriting credits and that Rudolf died his hair blond as part of a plot to "misrepresent and fool people" for years.

It all came to light, Michael says, when he was approached to help with the recent 50th anniversary Scorpions reissues. Michael says: "I found out that they put a bio out that was a completely wrong story. I found out that there was nobody credited for what I wrote on Holiday. It's the intro to Holiday, it's 45 seconds long. That's the intro that I wrote but nobody got credit for it.

"And then Rudolf asked me to give him the melodies for Coast To Coast and with my black-and-white guitar. And those two things were the most tastiest things and easiest parts to copy, because Rudolf is not really a great guitarist. He can just about play." Read more here.
