Herman 'Ze German' Rarebell (born November 18, 1949, as Hermann
Erbel) is a German drummer, best known for his tenure with the Scorpions -
from 1977 to 1995 - playing on eight popular/influential studio albums. He
was an important composer in the history of the group, writing such classic
songs as 'Another Piece of Meat' and 'Falling in Love,' and the second
single from the album ‘Savage Amusement,’ 'Passion Rules The Game.'
Additionally, Herman penned the lyrics for some of the most classic songs
of the band’s entire history, including 'Rock You Like a Hurricane,' 'Make
It Real,' 'Dynamite,' 'Blackout,' 'Arizona,' 'Bad Boys Running Wild,'
'Don't Stop At the Top,' and 'Tease Me Please Me,' among countless others.
Another standout song that Herman penned was the beautiful ballad,
"I'll Say Goodbye," which was recorded with Don Dokken on vocals.
Unfortunately, what would have surely been a worldwide hit for the
Scorpions managed to slip through the cracks, as it was never recorded by
the group. In 1982, Herman released his first solo album, ‘Nip in the Bud’
(which he re-recorded as 'Herman ze German & Friends' with the help of
friends/members of Dokken, Great White, Ratt, etc.). To this day, Herman
remains the only member of the Scorpions to have released a solo project
while still a full member of the band. However, by 1995, Rarebell decided
to exit the Scorpions - leaving behind such lofty accomplishments as over
70 gold and 30 platinum records (in addition to countless other awards and
prizes). Subsequently, with the contribution of Prince Albert of Monaco, he
created Monaco Records. Herman has also participated in the Drum Legends
project with his friend Pete York (ex-Spencer Davis Group) and jazz drummer
Charly Antolini, and has released a live CD & DVD. And on August 3,
2006, Herman joined the Scorpions onstage at the Wacken Festival as a
special guest along with Ulrich Roth and Michael Schenker. Come 2010 Herman
was ready to rock once more, as he returned with his latest solo album,
‘Take It As it Comes’ (released via Dark Star Records), and its kick-ass
lead-off single, ‘Let Me Rock You.’ Get ready to be pounded into submission
once more by one of rock’s greatest drummers...Herman ze German Rarebell!
