If VH is metal, then there goes 60% of my top 10.

Maybe just THAT album.

I`ve never thought of any VH as metal. I`ll be damned if I thought Badmotorfinger was either, and certainly no Rush either... metal is stuff I don`t like. :wink:

Cue Bad News (see Ade Edmondson) arguments about whether their music is Heavy Metal or not!!

 

(And yes Goose, I think you were subtlely correcting me - the album IS obviously Fair Warning and not Mean Streets! I'd argue the 1st and Mean..[Gawd, nearly did it again!!], Fair Warning are their (most) metal albums!)

One of my favourite lists so far. I really need to dive into Scorpions at some point. I enjoy everything I have heard, they just intimidate me with the size of their discography!

70s Scorpions has little in common with 80s and later Scorpions. 

 

70's scorpions is wild in the context of what they became

 

Wasn't even aware they were a 70's band till like 2 years ago, lol

Being an older person LOL .. I grew up with the Scorpions so have the advantage

of ‘ prior-knowing ‘ for quite a long time their recording history.

Although they may have some how formed in their 1st incarnation in 1965 … I personally find that this date is misleading , as 1st album was released in ‘72.

For me it’s when the 1st album is released that counts as the real start of a band’s career. 

Even the oldest members Klaus Meine & Rudolph Schenker were only 17 in ‘65 …

Matthias Jabs - very under rated axe man btw who joined in ‘79 was only 10 years old back in ‘65 ! … and even I wasn’t born back then 😮🙃:rofl2:

 No I think the exact same way. The albums are the real determining factors.

Could one say Uli Jon Roth-era and Mathias Jabs era to distinguish them? 

However, Michael Schenker is on the 1st album which puts a fly in the ointment of my very loose distinction between eras. 

 

IMO they were graced by 3 exceptional lead guitarists although I've not listened to the 1st album to know if Micheal had reached his UFO-level yet.

Michael Schenker played lead guitar on Lovedrive.

Hats off to your superior Scorps knowledge!! 

 

Just read about it on Wiki P. Seemed like a bit of a awkward situation as they got rid of Mathias J and then got him back '..after intense negotiations...' Hmmm

 

I heard an interview with Michael Schenks saying he wasn't too enamored with his brother (paraphrased) so maybe something kicked off between them during that session. Maybe akin to the Oasis-Gallagher brothers' relationship!

 

I still feel like Lovedrive onwards is 'Jabs' territory but that's just my preference.
