We weren’t born in England or America, the place rock and roll was actually born. We realized from our idols, and we stated to ourselves, in Germany we need to go and make bridges with our music, present that from Germany they don’t seem to be coming with tanks and making conflict; they’re coming with guitars, taking part in love, peace and rock and roll. And I believe this energy on this primary basis of this thought made the band very sturdy. We did not make rock and roll not just for enjoyable — after all for enjoyable, however with a deep message behind it. And that is the crucial level, and that is the rationale why we attempt to construct the best chemistry in all our years that we will dwell collectively and after we are on tour we now have enjoyable and we will speak nonetheless collectively and never solely on stage. And that is, I believe, a really optimistic level for the SCORPIONS and that is the rationale why we nonetheless are ‘rock believers.'”
