History

Former Scorpions guitar master, Uli Jon Roth formed Electric Sun after ditching Scorpions after becoming disenchanted over time with the band (although he later said the music and lyrics to She's A Man, He's A Woman pushed him over the edge). Electric Sun had a number of musicians who were later augmented with known musicians from bands like Samson for the road. Roth later went on take years, if not decades to design a guitar or write an album, and married the widow of Jimi Hendrix - his idol. Electric Sun has the trademark guitar wail of Roth but falters because of his weak vocals. Watch for much jazz and Middle Eastern influence.
