Written by admin

The German rock band Scorpions has made changes to the words of their legendary ballad Wind of Change, released in 1990 and dedicated to the perestroika in the USSR and the end of the Cold War.

A fragment of the band’s performance in Las Vegas, where the song was performed with new words, was posted on the Internet.

Before the performance, vocalist Klaus Maine said that now this song should sound louder than usual.

As you can see from the video, the line of the ballad Follow the Moskva down to Gorky Park (“Walking along the banks of the Moskva River to Gorky Park”) was replaced by the musicians with the words: – it says Ukraine “).

Klaus Maine once said that in August 1989, before a concert in Luzhniki, he took a walk along the Moskva River with other musicians and then went for a barbecue at the Victoria Rock Cafe near the Stas Namin Center in Gorky Park. According to him, there were musicians, journalists, Soviet soldiers and everyone listened to music that united everyone. And in this atmosphere was born the song Wind of Change, which was included in the album Crazy World.
