Default Re: BEST HAIR METAL BAND TOURNAMENT: The Scorpions (#8) vs Skid Row (#9)

I had both these bands listed on my nominations list. I had Skid Row
listed fairly high though. ... IMO they were a better band with a gritty
and harder edge. Closer to Rock than to Glam Metal. Loved Sebastian
Bach's vocals ! .... One of the front men that stood out in the 80s. His
problem was that the overuse of Drugs and Alcohol made his live shows
a tossup as to what form of Skid Row you'd see for your money.

The Scorpions were an older band from Germany that couldn't find success
outside their local region while they experimented with different "sounds".
Eventually they got into the Hair Metal wave in the early 80s and found
their niche. I liked their "sound". Not really that outstanding as for Talent,
or Appeal.... Hell, they were actually closer to all those things that made
me dislike the later 80s hair metal bands, but they were different enough
to make me like their music. Don't know if it was the accent or the
writing, but to me, they were just fun to listen to.

Liked both these bands, but in this matchup, I'm choosing Skid Row, they
were the better of the two IMO.
