Scorpions – Forever and a Day Featuring the Scorpions Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Katja Von Garnier
Release Date: November 27, 2015
Like any long-running rock band, there comes a time when the group must decide how long they should keep it going. Are they too old for this? Should they go out while they’re still ahead?
German heavy metal band Scorpions, who’ve been in action for over 50 years, had to make that decision in recent years, which led to a farewell world tour that lasted three years. Scorpions – Forever and a Day, an authorized documentary from director Katja Von Garnier, gives the history of the band while also documenting their farewell tour, a lengthy outing that proved that the Teutonic titans are, in fact, not ready to pack it all in.
The documentary tells the 50-year story of the Scorpions with rare footage and old photos, along with interviews with past and present band members and crew, and others, all interspersed with live concert clips.
One of the most globally popular hard rock bands of the 1980s, The Scorpions, have reneged on their plans to disband and retire from making music, and have vowed to carry on and continue to stay together as a musical unit.
Lead singer Klaus Meine, who lent his distinctive vocals to well-loved and remembered Scorpion tracks like “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “The Zoo” and the power ballad “Still Loving You,” confirmed this news to Classic Rock Magazine. In short, he slightly backpedaled on the band’s decision to call it quits last year by stressing that, “It’s one thing to say, “˜this is going to be the end of the Scorpions’, but it’s another thing to do it.”
