What Rudolf Schenker began in 1965, turned into a career spanning 5 decades and is still going strong today!
The Scorpions were one of hard rock's biggest hit-makers of the 80's, with mind blowing albums such as Blackout (1982), Love at First Sting (1984), Savage Amusement (1988) and their latest and greatest, Sting In The Tail (2010)... and who can overlook their unforgettable power ballads, such as "Still Loving You" and the intenseness of "Wind of Change."
In 2009, the idea was born as Adrian Vesper contacted Wes Stillman with the idea to play Scorpions music... From there, Wes ran with the idea; contacting Kevin Bloodworth, Lead Guitar, Jeff Myers, Bass Guitar, adding Tim Fleetwood, departed Drummer, (2009 - 2011) superseded by Patrick Cunningham. In 2010, these bad boys made their first debut at POPs Concert Venue to 1,000+ screaming Scorpions fans!.
Savage Amusement, a Scorpions tribute band from St. Louis, Missouri, is quickly becoming one of the best Scorpions tribute bands in the Midwest. They have a ringing endorsement with James Kottak, the drummer of The Scorpions and other notable personalities.
Get ready to get in the Rock Zone with the Bad Boys Running Wild who will Rock You Like A Hurricane...
I gotta tell ya, these guys are excellent, one of the very top, if not the top, best Scorpions Tribute band. I hate to call them a tribute because it really minimalizes how good these guys are.
