I just heard the Scorpions are playing the Orpheum Sept. 29. The very thought of Klaus Meine's nasaly heavy-metal wailing is giving me an instant headache. When I was a tweener, my older brother used to blast the Scorpions from his bedroom next door, and now anytime I hear the opening chords to "Rock You Like a Hurricane," my head starts throbbing. People have tried to convince me it's a great song, but I can't get past my childhood mental block. Go if you must -- I"ll be at home with my fingers in my ears.
