Former SCORPIONS Drummer To Publish Autobiography; New Solo Band Announced

Former SCORPIONS drummer Herman Rarebell will publish his autobiography, “And Speaking of Scorpions…” , in the fall. A press/media tour will take place in late October through early November to coincide with the book’s release.

“And Speaking of Scorpions…” was written specifically for the North American audience and is described as “the definitive history of the band.”

In other news, Rarebell will take his new band HERMAN ZE GERMAN out on the road next year.

The group’s current lineup is as follows:

* Herman Rarebell (drums)
* Stefan Erz (vocals)
* Patgirli (guitar)
* Chris Hasler (guitar)
* Arno Baum (bass)
* Claudia Raab (saxophone)

Few metal drummers have a name as recognizable as Herman Rarebell. And with good reason. After all, it was Rarebell‘s drumming that helped propel the SCORPIONS into one of the 1980s’ most successful rock bands (as well as co-penning the all-time classic “Rock You Like A Hurricane”).

Commented Herman: “I guess most of you guys know me as the former drummer of the SCORPIONS. Together with my friends Rudolf, Matthias, and Klaus, I enjoyed twenty truly awesome years of exhilarating rock and roll. We went through thick and thin, toured the world a couple times, and were awarded over 70 gold and 30 platinum records in addition to a bunch of other awards and prizes.”
