Herman Rarebell- Known and loved around the world as one of the original members of the greatest German rock band of all time, the Scorpions, as history shows, he was arguably the catalyst behind the band's string of successful albums in the late 1970's and 1980's. Along with his duties as the drummer for the legendary group during their "heyday", he also authored many of their biggest hits. AOR staples like "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Make It Real", "Passion Rules the Game", "Bad Boys Running Wild", "Another Piece of Meat", "Dynamite", "He's a Woman... She's a Man" and "Blackout" to name but a few, all have a home on his résumé.
Herman's list of accomplishments beyond the band is also quite extensive. Upon departing in the mid-1990's, he went on to head up Monaco Records, which he co-owned with his good friend, His Highness Prince Albert of Monaco. He is currently still active in music playing with a variety of artists in the studio and on the road as well as producing new material with his own band Herman Ze German and Friends. His latest album is titled Take It As It Comes. (Available on his website www.hermanrarebell.com as well as most online outlets.)
