    Description

    Scorpions Signed Jacket and Photo. The German hard Rock band the Scorpions reached their career peak during their 1990-91 "Crazy World Tour," fueled in part by the popularity of the single "Winds of Change," a fin de Cold War power ballad that mused over the socio-political changes occurring in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world at the time. Artifacts of that tour include this black cotton "Crazy World Tour 1991" jacket signed by bandmates guitarist Rudolf Schenker and vocalist Klaus Meine, as well as a color 8" x 10" photo of the band with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, also signed by Meine and Schenker -- both in Excellent condition. In an interesting footnote to said tour, the Scorpions had become the first Western group to be invited to perform at the Moscow Music Festival not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and Meine drew upon the experience when writing "Winds of Change." In 1991, the band was invited to the Kremlin to meet Gorbachev, a fan of the group; later that year, on December 25, after months of political turmoil, Gorbachev resigned his position and the U. S. S. R. was officially dissolved. Coincidence? You be the judge... With COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
