BraveWords' Martin Popoff recently released his new book, Scorpions: Top Of The Bill, available at

A description reads as follows:

"Blackout At The Zoo!

No question that Scorpions, Germany’s loudest and proudest rock band ever, have done much for heavy metal over the years, and it’s high time a book on them hit the shelves. Well, the wait is over with the arrival of Scorpions: Top Of The Bill, which looks at every song on every album the Teutonic tone-masters ever crafted, beginning with Lonesome Crow back in ‘72 through to the band’s triumphant "retirement" album Sting In The Tail (and beyond into Comeblack - long story!).

'Speedy’s Coming', 'Dark Lady', 'Catch Your Train', 'Virgin Killer', 'Another Piece Of Meat', 'Animal Magnetism', 'Lovedrive', 'Holiday', 'The Zoo', 'Blackout', 'No One Like You', 'Rock You Like A Hurricane', 'Still Loving You', 'Wind Of Change'... these are hits and deep album tracks built into the very fabric of heavy metal, and the stories of their making are all here.

Come join Martin as he embarks on conversation and analysis with all of the principals and beyond, including Klaus Meine, Uli Jon Roth, Herman Rarebell, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, along with the likes of David Krebs, Ralph Rieckermann, Francis Buchholz and legendary manager David Krebs."
