    I plan to work out more often in the gym this month and every month beyond so I can be in as good of shape as you and all the Scorps are! I hope you and the boys are planning a tour to Indianapolis, Indiana, you guys are amazing and hope to see you in 2010! Just knowing that you guys will be coming to Indy will help me to start thinking positive every day I’m alive.
    You guys rock!

    I’m from Brazil and I’m 21 years old. Reading parts of his sensational book, (I’m looking forward to buy my book) I will face life every day as if it were the last. Do not worry about the possible problems of the future, and enjoy the joy of the moment. This is the game of life! Rock for our lives! Hope to see you here in Brazil this tour is going to be a deadly poison of the Scorpions. Sting in the tail!!

  12. I am in a new leg brace (out of Germany actually) and I plan on joining a rec center that will make me strong again to walk with just a cane!! Rudolf and all the band have inspired me back into life and on my feet to try to walk again. Thank you so much. Meeting them in 2007 and then seeing them a year later and they all remembered me was beyond fantastic!

  13. Well Lars and Rudy,I ahve to told you that February is a very special month for me, next Thursday I get my bachelor’s degree and after 5 years, I am officially a civil engineer, something that is not easy, because women in this area are constantly victims of prejudice, the engineering is a science where men rules.So what I gonna do is try to overcome the barrier of prejudice in my profession, and achieve decent work for all my effort in the years college. Moreover,I wanna keep working with my Scorpions Tribute band in Manaus, perfecting my voice and get inspiration to write my own songs, and so on lead to the influences that caused the Scorpions in my generation. I think for now That’s it.
    Thanks for this opportunity!

  15. Here I am!!

    Guys, it’s great to know that, when you upload the video on facebook to win a Meet & Geet with you, over 5 hours the taggs were at the top!!! But, for my bad luck, I fail to post me….

    So…what I’m goin’ to change to be happier…well….(is more difficult than I thought) I like to live happy each moment, but my most important reason is that for begginin’, in this month my mom and I are going to live in our own home, after years of working for it, after going through many difficult situations really. So help my mom and change a little my attitude to be happiest both. The economic situation is hard.

    Well….thanks for all guys!!! Take care and

    Comment by Phuong — February 8, 2010 @ 9:30 am

  18. Hello, Rudolf,
    I listen Scorpions music since I was 16 years old (now I’m 47), I’ve learned the rock n’ roll from Scorpions, I’ve grown up my three children with your music and I’ ll do the same with my grandchildren (when they’ll come). My life has turned and been up side down since I saw you at the consert you gave us on the 4th July 2009 at the ancient Castle of Mytilene – Lesvos (Greece). Thank you for the excellent music you are giving us and never forget, you are the best of the best. Take care and keep on rocking for all your life!!!

    Comment by Lars — February 8, 2010 @ 11:02 am

  21. Hi Rudolph!
    My plan for change relates of my point of view towards long-held orthodx beliefs. In other words, after 45 years, I now see religion from a different point of view: It is man’s attempt to make sense out of things–egocentrism at its finest. That being said, I am a former Evangelical Christian that was “bound” by Southern Baptist orthodoxy, but not anymore! Thus, in order to make myself happier, I plan to continue my research into the conception of Christianity–as well as other religious beliefs. Also, I am going to make a greater attempt to notice when I am exercising sociocentric behavior; that is, I must be myself as opposed to “molded” by a specific group.

  22. I have finally started playing guitar again after I stopped 20 years ago! I was able to start playing again because I came up with the idea to play “Still Loving You” for my wife on our 10th anniversary two weeks ago. She is also a huge Scorps fan, so that made it a very special day for her! This month I will now learn the Scorps song that I have always wanted to to be able to play ever since 1982… Blackout!!! It will definitely make my life happier if I am finally able to play it on guitar, and my wife will be happier too! Rock on Rudolf and Lars!! I am Canadian, but both sides of my family are German – yeah!!!

  23. I’m gonna cut back on the booze, and try not to say to much off the cuff without thinking about it. Good luck with your book Rudolf. I’m not one that puts his values on materialsm to much, but a signed poster by Rudolf would be cool as hell. Good luck on your Sting In The Tail tour.

    Comment by Pothead — February 9, 2010 @ 5:24 am

  24. Hi Rudolph,

    The greatest misconception about me is that I am this brooding person and as a result of this, I always end up unhappy in everything I do. This is what I would like to change. I would like myself to have a positive attitude towards life and just take on life with a better approach.

    Keep Rocking…

  26. Since years I had the intention to learn to meditate. After reading RYL I booked a course at a neighbouring medical academy close to my hometown. This academy is led by a medical scientist (a normal physician) who is practioning as well TCM (traditional chinese medicin), Ayurveda and other asian medical treatments.
    I am sure this will be positive for my future life.

  27. Woohooo!! I got my membership to the local rec center yesterday and now I can start my goal to working out with my leg brace and getting strong enuf to WALK up to Rudolf when I see him again! I wish I could meet you Lars. But I can’t tell you what an inspiration all the guys have been and now Rudolf with his positive nature just helps all the more to go for the best life can offer me. Thanks again.

    Comment by Cristy Slater — February 11, 2010 @ 10:24 pm

  28. Leute, Ihr werdet es nicht glauben; aber ihr könnt es überprüfen.
    Vor ca. 2 Wochen habe ich mir RYL gekauft und begonnen zu lesen.
    Schönes Buch, mal ein anderer Sprachstil; aber sonst erst mal nicht so viel Neues. Positives Denken, Durchhaltevermögen, Vison der Zukunft, Sammlung durch Meditation oder Gebet. All das findet man auch in vielen anderen (Auto-)Biografien erfolgreicher Männer udn Frauen.
    Dann komme ich zu der Szene in Colombo / Sri Lanka. Ihr Wißt schon: “Palmenblattbibliothek.” Und da denke ich: Jetzt tickt der Schenker aus. Der Mönch hat die gesamte Vergangenheit und Zukunft seines Gesprächspartners gekannt, den Todestag vorausgesagt. Nee, das ist mir dann doch etwas zu phantastisch. Also ich lege das Buch erst mal zur Seite. Das mache ich immer so, wenn ich an irgend etwas erst mal kauen muss.
    So weit, so gut.
    Am 19. Januar hatte ich 58. Geburtstag und bekam von der Mutter des Lebensabschnittsgefährten meiner jüngsten Tochter ein Jahresabo der Zeitschrift “P.M. Welt des Wissens”. Ein ganz seriöses Blättchen, das wissenschaftliche Themen verständlich aufbereitet wiedergibt.
    Gestern Abend komme ich aus dem Geschäft und finde das neue P.M. vor. Headline auf der Titelseite: Können unsere Gedanken Materie verändern? Na, denke ich das mußt Du nach dem Abendessen erst mal lesen. Und dann kommts: Der Artikel befasst sich mit der seriösen – aber noch nicht ganz unumstrittenen Wissenschaft der Noetik. Gans seriöse Wissenschaftler, u.a. Quantenphysiker und Biologen beschäftigens ich heier mit dem Themen “Nullpunkt-Feld” und “Intention”.
    Ich zitiere: “Es ist durchaus möglich, dass wir in einem Universum leben, in dem alles, was geschehen wird, schon geschehen ist. Die Zukunft existiert bereits auf einer Ebene der reinen Möglichkeit. Menschen mit Vorahnungen zapfen lediglich Informationen an, die schon vorhanden sind.” Der US-Physike Harold Puthoff
    “Wenn man sich tief genug in die Quantenwelt hineinbegibt, existiert vielleicht kein Unterschied zwischen Geist und Materie”
    Rober G. Kahn Physike Princeton University.
    Fuck. Dann kann das mit der Palmenblattbibliothek ja doch stimmen. Ich lese weiter.
    Liebe Grüße vom Steinhuder Meer.
    sorry I did not write this posting in English. I felt unable to translate this stuff. Maybe somebody else does.

  30. Hi Lars, nein, eigentlich nicht, wenn man an Zufall (Schicksal, göttliche Fügung) glaubt. Oder?

    Comment by JEK_B — February 12, 2010 @ 1:27 pm

  31. This month I plan on becoming more confident and sticking up for myself more in general. I’m going to stop letting people push me around as much, I am honestly going to try and be myself and not care what other people think of me, I’m going to stick up for myself and I’m going to try and make this month the beginning of an awesome new life that I shall lead =)

  32. Awesome, Helen! That is fantastic! Rock Your Life!!!

    Comment by Lars — February 12, 2010 @ 9:44 pm

  33. Next moment in times? Think I would work on making some new SLY babies. I imagine the world is full of them by now, so they would never be alone. And looking through the keyhole, to the future, I think I would like to make some Sting In The Tail babys also. Ah yes Rudi’s da man.

    Comment by Who Dat — February 15, 2010 @ 8:46 pm

  34. Hey Rudolf, how the hell is ya? I could buy a Rudolf Schenker signature off of ebay, but I’m not into secondhands ( I’m not jeehadgemental), and what kind of dork, would sell Rudi’s signature anyways?. So perhaps to make my self better into the unkown times, I think I’ll order your new book, kick back in the snow and make snow angel, and wait for Sting In The Tail to come out and rock my mind.

  35. What am I going to do to make my life better?.. Hmm… Let’s see… Hard choice! Well…
    I think I will post a comment on and then perhaps enjoy how it looks!
    And – wait! I might win a signed RYL poster with my name!!! This will undoubtedly make my life better…
    I will by all means do it! … actually I am already)

    Comment by Artem — February 16, 2010 @ 8:57 am

  36. I think I might make my life happier by eating a whole bunch of oranges. That seems like a good idea.
    Looking forward to hearing the new Scorps, though – it had better measure up to all the hype that’s preceded it … :)

    Comment by Angus — February 16, 2010 @ 1:16 pm

  37. Hi Rudolf! I’m a 16 year-old portuguese girl and a huge fan of Scorpions. Thank you to share your wisdom and life experiences in your book, I will buy it and learn all I can to become a great guitarist and i hope someday my band’s music will touch people’s hearts like you do!
    And I promise that when I get my scorpion pet, I’ll name it after Rudolf!

    Rock On!

  39. Hallo! I hope I’m not too late!
    Thanks for this competition, because it motivated me to stop and think for a moment about my life. To be honest, I’m really happy and enjoy my days but for a couple of weeks I have a bit difficult time. Time to change it :)
    I don’t want to be such a perfectionist anymore. It’s impossible to satisfy everyone. However, peaople aren’t the biggest problem. It’s me. These days made me realized that not everything need to be perfect, it won’t be a real disaster, if I don’t manage to do something.
    That’s one of the reasons I’m moving out from my dorm this week. I found another one where I’ll live alone and I’ll be able to focus on myself, on organizing my life and myself. I need some solitude to concentrate on my needs and my real needs.
    It will be the first step to my new better life and I really believe that it will help me to get rid of some particular problems I have right now.

    Thanks again! If it weren’t for this site, probably I wouldn’t have convinced myself that in fact, I need some changes. Everybody does, the thing is how serious they are.

    Greetings from Poland and have a really sunny Sunday :)
