In case you missed it, Scorpions drummer James Kottak was arrested a month ago for allegedly getting drunk at a Dubai airport and doing a bunch of stupid shit. News about the incident wasn’t reported until nearly a month afterwards and it looks like the rest of the band wasn’t very well informed either. Nonetheless, it looks like Kottak has finished up the rest of his stay in Dubai according to this post on Scorpion’s Facebook page:
James Kottak boarded a plane out of Dubai and arrived in the US last night. He will have to find the time to sort out his problems… Scorpions
That sounds kind of cold. Then again, if your band were traveling to play a big headlining show and you found out your drummer got arrested for drunkenly insulting Islam, you’d probably be a little pissed too. Either way, it sounds like they plan on putting him right back to work, at least for the time being.
