The embers of The Scopyons were formed in late 2011 when 4 North West based musicians decided to get together a definitive UK based tribute to the great German Rockers The Scorpions.
The band was founded by Nige Roberts, better known to some as the lead vocalist for reformed Liverpool NWOBHM rockers Marseille who toured the UK extensively back in the late 70ís with Judas Priest, Whitesnake, UFO, Gillan and Nazareth. Nige joined Marseille in February 2009 and recorded an ep called Fourplay and a full album called Unfinished Business and the band toured the UK and also appeared at the prestigious Hard Rock Hell Festival in Prestatyn. Nige had some down time after the re-launch of Marseille and he turned to fellow North West musicians Daz Green, Barry Lowe, Paul Anderson and Phil Gavin to finally put together a UK Scorpions tribute, something the lads had long since talked about but Nige's Marseille commitments had taken priority.
Scopyons have a leaning toward the post Uli Jon Roth era (1978 Lovedrive up to the present day) and a 2012 is officially the real Scorpions last year of touring there probably has never been a more perfect time to unleash the UK's first full 5 piece definitive Scorpions tribute band and YES they do play Winds Of Change!!!!
