Kottak Back Performing With Scorpions

James Kottak has made his return to Scorpions eight months after he was locked up in a Dubai jail.

The drummer made his return to the band for their show in Rotterdam and his return was announced in a very simple Tweet on Twitter: “Tonight we’re gonna rock Rotterdam. Welcome back James.”

Kottak spent a month behind bars in the United Arab Emirates earlier this year after getting drunk at an airport, cursing passengers, making an indecent gesture, pulling his trousers down and insulting Islam.

After his release he immediately entered an alcohol treatment centre. Swedish drummer Johan Franzon filled in for Kottak during his recovery.

On Facebook, Kottak says of his return: “I guess I’m back? Thank you for all the support.”
