I think you mean "they were", not "they was". I also think you were at a different Stone Free festival to the one I went to[1], because they were far from shit. They were easily the band of the day, by a fairly large margin.

[1] Perhaps because I was at the one at The O2 Arena, not The Dome ;-)


Your opinion perhaps but i still think Megadeath was the far better band at Stone Free and should have headlined it and not Scorpions. More to the point Scorpions are a rock band not a metal band so why are they at a metal festival?

Oh yea i know what i ment by the dome and the O2 arena due to the fact i went to see Sinsaenum at the Dome not long ago.

Scorpions have always been a Heavy Metal band.

Or are you one of those that think that Heavy Metal didn't exist before 1980 or has got to be "brutal"? :rolleyes:


The New Wave of British Heavy Metal is called that as it was a new wave of Heavy Metal bands as opposed to the ones from the late 1960s/early 1970s. Which the Scorpions were part of, although they are obviously German.

The Scorpions are as much a metal band as Saxon, Maiden or Judas Priest.

They will be superb at BOA and I expect them to be as good as Twister Sister were in 2016.

Rewriting history doesn't make it true. Scorpions are a metal band. Always have been and always will be. Indeed, I'd go further than that and say that they invented heavy metal. Sabbath and others were heavy beforehand. But Scorpions were the first to bring together the elements that we now associate with heavy metal (clear, high pitched vocals, guitar harmonies, driving riffs, etc) and set the template for metal for decades to follow.
