Scorpions May Accept Kottak Back After Rehab

(Classic Rock) Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine says the band want drummer James Kottak to return from rehab as the "great guy" they remember. And he revealed Kottak will play drums on the band's upcoming new album and take part in next year's tour.

Kottak was jailed in Dubai after a drunken episode on a plane this year and his position in the band was unclear after they told him to get a grip of himself.

But now Meine confirms that the band will stand by the American. The new album will be out early next year, with a tour to follow. Meine tells Crazyscorps: "Of course we want James back. We said to him, 'The door is open for you to come back. But first it's up to you and you have to take care of yourself. Take it serious, go through a serious rehab.'" Read more here.
