Herman Rarebell Shares 10 Rare Scorpions Photos

Scroll
While there have been numerous articles and books dedicated to The Scorpions over the years, only a few of them can boast as much personal access as Splento has had. Splento had the honour of interviewing the legendary drummer and one of the greatest rock stars of all the time: Herman Rarebell
 
Most of the photographs we’ve got access to were taken from the late ‘70s until 1995, when Herman Rarebell started his producing career, released a few solo albums, received countless music awards and formed 2 music bands: Temple of Rock and Rock Wolves
 
Below there are 10 of Herman Rarebell’s favourite photographs with the Scorpions, plus his own comments underneath. Most of these rare shots have existed only in Herman’s private collection for many years and, undoubtedly, they are just as exciting as that might suggest…
