Yeah, Uli. Can't sing to save his life, but what a guitarist.
Oops, I wasn't clear enough. I ment did the Scorpions in their 80s phase credit sources, because several songs are almost note-for-note of melodies like Black Velvet (not the trad) or Skynyrds' Simple Man. Uli didn't steal, he drew from influences to make his own stuff. Sorry about the confusion.
Phil (my favourite) was one of the most creative musicians ever, IMHO.
