This Week’s Hippo – Scorpions, John Waite

Scorpions call it a career with final album, world tour

Last January, with the release of their 17th album, Sting in the Tail, German rockers Scorpions decided to retire as a band.

The final run of shows will likely stretch into 2012, the 40th anniversary of the band’s first record, Lonesome Crow.
