45 Years Ago: SCORPIONS release In Trance

...when the Kraut rock thing came up, back then, in the early Seventies, it was like all the international stars in big music magazines: they got big articles and nice features - it was like they were putting us down and making us very small. It was like, push, push, push when - especially when we were a young band - we needed support to gain the confidence. We felt there was no support and it encouraged us to go to foreign countries. We went to England in 1975 just to figure out, "We are German but we sing in English. Are we good enough? Are we strong enough to survive among English who invented rock 'n' roll?" This was always like a challenge, and so very soon we became an international band.
