Release Year: 
Former SCORPIONS bassist FRANCIS BUCHHOLZ as well as INGLORIOUS lead singer NATHAN JAMES join Mitch for episode 189 of One On One With Mitch Lafon. In the shows first interview, long-time SCORPIONS bassist Francis Buchholz talks about his current Temple Of Rock band with Michael Schenker and Herman Rarebell, their current album Spirit On A Mission, getting back into music after his long post-Scorpions hiatus, working with Uli Jon Roth, the SCORPIONS 50th anniversary deluxe re-issues and not being invited to participate, the passing of Jimmy Bain, the Love At First Sting recording sessions, his favorite Scorpions album and much more

On taking a break from the music industry: "I had been touring for about twenty years with the Scorpions. I just needed some time off to look after my family, but the main reason was a disagreement within the band about management, about the future and about the past.. I didn't feel comfortable with the new people coming in."

The SCORPIONS 50th Anniversary re-issues and bonus interviews: "I knew about the interviews because Herman told me, but the record company just didn't want to invite me and I didn't want to run after them."

On Jimmy Bain's passing: "Very sad news... I was very sad about that. He's a lovely guy."

In the episode's second interview, Mitch sits down with upcoming singer Nathan James from INGLORIOUS. The two discuss the band's self-tiltled debut album, Nathan's career up to this point and being the singer on Uli Jon Roth's Scorpions Revisited album, and much more.

Quote from the interview: On getting into a band situation rather than move forward as a solo artist: "It's what I've wanted to do for a long time. I started recording a solo record with some amazing musicians. It was a great sounding album, but I was listening to it and I thought, 'I'd rather be Robert Plant than Meatloaf'."
