A note from @tobiassammetofficial: "7 years ago today #Avantasia released the DYING FOR AN ANGEL video clip, featuring the one and only #KlausMeine of the one and only SCORPIONS. I am extremely proud of this song, the video and my duet partner. He and the Scorpions have always been a huge influence, and I guess I can speak for most people holding an electric guitar who grew up in Germany: The Scorps paved the way for our kind of music. Before they set out to conquer the world heavy music made in Germany wasn't heard of in the big picture. I remember being on our first American tour, I got in a taxi and heard Rock You Like A Hurricane on radio. And while the driver got me to soundcheck he went: "You're from Germany, You must know THESE guys, right?" - of course man, I KNOW "THESE GUYS"... 'These guys' paved the way and 'these guys" are friends - and legends! And what's astounding, they still have it!!! They still do it! They are the hardest-working, most professional Rock machines you can think of. Klaus walked into the studio, nailed Dying For An Angel in 45 minutes and it was done. Perfect! Yes, he's that guy who did Wind Of Change, but he's also that guy who did The Zoo, Coming Home, In Trance and Dying For An Angel! He can do anything! I raise my hat to one of the most down to earth Rockers one can think of! -T"
