Has anyone noticed that in the song "Still Lovin' You" by Scorpions - The singer sounds VERY close to Freddie in his early days(ie. "Seaside Rendezvous")??

Klaus Meine? No, no, no dear!! The inflections are not there. (Whatever happened to the Scorpions anyway?)

Although I respect Klaus Meine as a voice and I love that song, I don't see any resemblence what so ever...

Klaus sings like he has a very bad sinus infection. The Scorpions do have some good songs, though. I group them in my closet of love for '80's hair bands (even though they were balding IN the 80's.) :-)

Does Klaus still wear a codpiece on stage?

YES!!!

He does sound like Freddie in some parts of "Still Loving You". I can't believe that there are so few of us who can hear it!

They don't make bands like The Scorpions anymore.

So his name is Klaus Meine,eh? I do think,at least in that song anyway,his voice is VERY close to Freddie(70's Freddie).VERY close.The first time I heard it I thought it was Freddie.
