Box Set Birthday: Klaus Meine

posted by Kenny Young -

I featured some platinum classics from Scorpions in my Box Set tonight in honor of Klaus' 70th Birthday. He, along with guitarist Rudolf Schenker are the only two band members to appear on every studio album. 

In the set I played "Wind of Change" written by Meine and released in January of 1991 on Crazy World.  With estimated sales of 14 million copies sold worldwide, it's is one of the best-selling singles of all time. It holds the record for the best-selling single by a German artist as well. The video for that tune has reached milestones of its own. As of May, 2018, the video for "Wind of Change" has been viewed more than 567 million times on YouTube.  Below is a Video Birthday Card signed by some of the biggest names in Rock and beyond:
