During a recent interview with Eddie Trunk, Scorpions singer Klause Meine has revealed one of the biggest conspiracy theories about the band.
Probably, you already heard about the biggest Scorpions conspiracy theory but I have to repeat it again. The theory says their most popular song ‘Wind Of The Change’ was written by CIA.
Today, Klause Meine talked in a new episode of Trunk Nation and responded to the claims. He said:
“Earlier this year, I did an interview. I think his name was Patrick Keefe. He came all the way from New York City over here to Germany for an interview with me. And Matthias did a phoner later, I guess. And it was about the Moscow Music Peace Festival, about ‘Wind Of Change’, but this is what this interview was all about.
He used to write for printouts like New Yorker and stuff — he’s a great guy, and very sympathetic and a really nice guy. And in the middle of the interview, he goes, like, ‘Klaus, you ever heard the story that ‘Wind Of Change’ was written by the CIA?’ And I cracked up laughing — I totally cracked up laughing.
I said to him, ‘So, my friend, you think you make an interview with a songwriter or you think you make an interview with a spy?’ It was pretty bizarre. And then I learned the story. This was all about the podcast that would come out in May, which is now.
“Those guys, they’re very professional and very creative, and the way they put it together, it feels like a Netflix series, right? That’s what it is. It’s a podcast, and there will be a lot of people who will get into this. It’s a fascinating idea, and it’s an entertaining idea, but it’s not true at all.”
