SCORPIONS’ KLAUS MEINE On Retirement: We Have ‘Scratched That Word’ Out Of Our Vocabulary

Written by on May 9, 2022

During a new interview with Jorge Botas of Portugal’s “Metal Global”SCORPIONS singer Klaus Meine assured fans that there is no more talk of retirement, as there was back in 2010 with what was purported to be a final album and a farewell tour that never quite took hold. “No, we scratched that word [retirement] out of our [vocabulary],” he said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “It’s not there. We don’t think about it and we don’t talk about it and we take it as it comes.

“Who would have thought two years after the pandemic… The pandemic is not gone, unfortunately, but two years after this long, long break… We played the last show before we started [our residency] in Las Vegas on the 5th of March, 2020 in Singapore; that was the last show,” he continued. “So it’s scary. We never had such a long break. And then all of a sudden you’re back in front of an audience, in front of the fans. But then you know it feels so good, and it still feels so good after all these years.

“We’re just growing older and we do what we do and we hope our fans enjoy it as much as we do,” Klaus added. “But who would have thought we’re still around after celebrating 50 years of being recording artists — our first album came out in 1972 and now ‘Rock Believer’ looks like it hits the big time with the fans and so many positive reviews from all over the world. And after all these years, who would have thought? And it’s a wonderful thing.
