Not the most technical drummer just very solid which is cool he always played Ludwig & Paiste like a couple drummers we know.

I've seen the Scorps about 6 or 7 times I think they are amazing in concert kinda like a Porsche on the Autobahn doing 200+ MPH..........lots of energy & very tight.

I've like HR always a rock solid beat and just the right amount of fills never over-done.

I always liked "The Same Thril","The Zoo","Lovedrive""Make it real" & Crossfire just to name a few.

Quite good comments, brother!

You know, regarding the different drummers that played with The Scorpions, I think that the most technical approached was Rudy Lenners who performed on In Trance and Virgin Killer.

The latest drummer James Kotiak (Something like that LOL) is probably the most Tecnical drummer so far IMO he used to jam with Kingdom Clone I mean Kingdom Come LMAO back in the 80's he has pretty decent chops.

I do enjoy the Scorpions.

I saw them live once, and I thought Herman was pretty boring. He seemed to repeat himself a lot. Although for all his over simplicity, the beat on the chorus of "Rhythm of Love" is pretty darn cool. And I admire his discipline to play just 1/4 notes in the beat of "The Zoo".

But the important aspect of Rarebell is he wasn't just the drummer in the Scorpions, he also helped write many of their songs.

Yes & I believe he helped produce some of the Scorps stuff back then, I know he's a producer today.
