I've copied the article, but here's the link. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100124/ap_en_ot/eu_germany_scorpions

BERLIN The German rock band Scorpions is bringing down the curtain on a career spanning more than four decades.

The band, known for its early 1990s hit "Wind of Change" among others, said on its Web site Sunday that "we agree we have reached the end of the road."

It said it would end its career with a final album "Sting In The Tail," to be released in March and a tour that will start in Germany in May and take it across the world "over the next few years."

Guitarist Rudolf Schenker founded the band in Hannover in 1965. Singer Klaus Meine joined a few years later. Both men are 61.

Yeah, some of the oldies acts are still worthwhile, while some of them have been beating a horse that's been dead for decades.  Scorpions have been shitty for a very long time.  But the RCA era, is very important, and influential in metal's history.

I would love to see either the Scorpions or Uli Jon Roth perform the Sails of Charon before they die. Some may not like it, but back in them days, metal didn't get much more progressive than that album. I will always respect the Scorpions as one of the founding bands of metal.

all signs point to yes.

In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.
