Scorpions

hair story

Scorpions are a German heavy metal band formed in 1964 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band’s inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. Rudolf Schenker, the band’s rhythm guitarist, launched the band in 1964. At first, the band had beat influences and Schenker himself handled the vocals.[34] Things began to come together in 1970 when Schenker’s younger brother Michael and vocalist Klaus Meine joined the band.
