Rarebell previews 2nd album of Scorpions tracks

Former Scorpions drummer Herman Rarebell has brought in singers including Don Dokken, Doogie White, Jack Russell and Tony Martin for a collaborative album.

Herman’s Scorpions Songs will feature 14 takes from the German veterans’ catalogue, and it’s to be released on November 7 under the banner Herman Rarebell & Friends. He’s launched a video to go with his version of Let It Shine, featuring Unbreakable’s Al Crespo.

It follows a similar acoustic album last year, which he’s been touring with the help of John Parr, Bobby Kimball and Michael Voss – all of whom appear on the latest record.

Rarebell said of Acoustic Fever: “I thought it would be a good idea to do a solo album of the songs I wrote or co-wrote with my the Scorpions. I’m really happy to have all those great singers on my album and I’m also thrilled that they said yes to do this.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
