Scorpions Singer Says Music Helps Us Forget World's Problems

. (Classic Rock) Scorpions singer Klaus Meine believes music can help people temporarily forget the world's problems. Meine says that while it is up to politicians to deal with social issues, he loves that music can offer an escape.

Speaking to Rock Overdose about the Greek debt crisis, Meine says: "Music is only a soundtrack to our lives, and I think with our fans in Greece, when we come together, it's all about emotions and it's all about music and it's all about 'forget the real world for a moment.'

"That's what music can do - to take us away on a different trip where we forget the mess we're all in sometimes. Music is about bringing people together, and this is our part. For the rest, it's up to politicians to deal with it, and hopefully they find good ways and bring people back together.

"It's good sometimes to get away and take a deep dive in the world of emotions and the world of music, to get away from what's out there and what is happening in the real world." Read more here.
