When the Scorpions decided to make a dignified end to their careers, no one could have guessed that this decision would lead to a great response around the world.

It’s been quite a while since my latest DVD review, so I thought it would be cool to do another one. Yesterday I watched the documentary “Forever And A Day”. It documents the farewell tour of Germany’s biggest Hard Rock export, Scorpions. The movie was released in some cinemas in conjunction with the release of the new album “Return To Forever”. I will discuss whether or not this was a smart move in this review.
On Friday 24th July the weather was raining and very windy. This did not bode well for the first ever Ramblin’ Man Fair festival to be held at Mote Park Maidstone Kent on the weekend of the 25th and 26th July.
However, good old English weather prevailed and the morning of Saturday the 25th the rain stopped and the sun was out, there was still a good wind and this helped the ground dry out. This was what we wanted a great day to start this festival off.
What a difference a day makes. So sang Renee Olstead in the classic song from yesteryear. The day before the inaugural Ramblin Man Fair, the heavens opened and it looked like it could all be a washout. Then, it’s rumoured, Klaus Meine steps forward, has a word with the powers that be, pointing out that Scorpions “don’t do rain” and the day they headline is an absolute dream. Hot sunny weather, the middle of a beautiful country park in the heart of Kent (The Garden of England), real ale on draught (Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale), a real ale tent and 3 stages containing the best that Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and Outlaw Country music have to offer.
There are no surprises on this album, no great leaps are trying to be made, nor do they need to be. Scorpions legendary status has been cemented for years now. Today they are just helping to keep the flag of hard rock and heavy metal flying high.
Well its all development, everything was special at the time when it was done because it was always the now. I don’t really necessarily look back. If I look back I had a great journey for sure. I like the now because the past has been done. I dealt with it and so my focus is more on the now that even in the future. I may have a blueprint of what is coming up,eg of what the tour is..the dates.I don’t know what I am going to be doing further down the road.”
