The SCORPIONS' Rudolph Schenker and QUEENSRŸCHE's Todd La Torre guest on episode 154 of One On One with Mitch Lafon.
 
 
Rudolf discusses assembling the band's latest effort RETURN TO FOREVER (my pick for best album of 2015), their 50th anniversary deluxe reissues of Taken By Force (1977), Tokyo Tapes (1978), Lovedrive (1979), Animal Magnetism (1980), Blackout (1982) Love at First Sting (1984), World Wide Live (1985), and Savage Amusement (1988), work on a new album with his brother Michael, and much more.
 
Quotes from the interview:
 
RUDOLPH SCHENKER on RETURN TO FOREVER: "We had to find DNA between the old songs and the new songs. The whole album sounds like the perfect album."
 
RUDOLPH SCHENKER on the Scorpions' future: "I'm committed to the Scorpions."
 
RUDOLPH SCHENKER on Michael Schenker: "After the Farewell tour, of course, I had in mind to do something with my brother, but there is nothing in the air yet."

QUEENSRŸCHE singer Todd LaTorre discusses the band's album Condition Hüman, the human condition of the band during the much talked about lawsuit with their former singer, Pledge Music, CRIMSON GLORY, touring, why they almost missed their show in Montreal with the SCORPIONS (Sept. 19th 2015), and much more.
 
Quotes from the interview:
 
TODD LA TORRE on the band's album Condition Hüman: "I'm an equal writer (not just lyrically and vocal melodies), I've also contributed drum and guitar parts."
 
TODD LA TORRE on CRIMSON GLORY: "Crimson Glory stopped working as a band because of Jon Drenning."
 
TODD LA TORRE on the lawsuit: "Theoretically, I could have taken the position that it's not my fight, but it becomes my problem because I'm the new singer in the band and I've got a bullseye on my throat."
