Michael Schenker Reveals The ‘Most Important Song’ Of Scorpions
Former Scorpions and UFO guitarist Mike Schenker spoke in a recent interview with Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon and revealed the most important song of Scorpions.
Scorpions released their debut album back in 1972, Lonesome Crow, and it featured a total of seven songs. Its style was darkly melodic unlike their latest albums, and it has the most important song of the band according to Mike.
In the conversation, Mike stated that ‘In Search of the Peace of Mind’ is the most important song and revealed why he thinks that way. Also, Mike said that he was only 15 years old when he first wrote that song.
Furthermore, Mike mentioned that this song is representing perfection to him and likened it to Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven.’ Moreover, Mike pointed out how a perfect song it is by saying that he wouldn’t change a single note from it.
Here is what Mike Schenker said about In Search of the Peace of Mind:
“The most important song. And the reason is – because I was 15 years old when I actually put the first note ever recording something, and that was with the Scorpions, ‘Lonesome Crow.’
It’s a song that I wrote when I was 15 years old in my mother’s kitchen all by myself, there was nobody involved…”
“The weirdest thing about this song is that it was my very first composition at age 15, and it had a solo in there that was so perfect, like, I would never change a note ever, like ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ something like that happened. And you would never change a note.
I couldn’t understand where it came from because I was in my development years, and you can hear on the rest of the ‘Lonesome Crow’ album that I’m an amateur and I’m learning.”
