Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 4/29/14 Scorpions Drummer Jailed
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Scorpions drummer James Kottak missed a Scorpions show in April, and the rock world wondered why. Well, apparently, he's in a Dubai jail serving a sentence for insulting Islam. Kottak denies the allegations he has been convicted on. The initial incident took place as he arrived to the city's airport. On his flight, Kottak allegedly over-indulged in adult beverages, and started talking belligerently to fellow travelers. Kottak is accused of exposing himself, using verbal and physical obscenities, and for speaking poorly of the country's main religion. He also has been fined for drinking alcohol without a permit. Huh?
Well, I know our American Constitution and Bill of Rights will prevent a racist bastard from being forced to sell his NBA Franchise. But, at least nobody will spend time in an American Prison for being a big-mouthed idiot.
Tonight, we'll hear three from The Scorpions...not titled "Rock You Like A Hurricane": "Big City Nights", "Rhythm Of Love", and "The Zoo" will be featured for tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
