German guitarist Uli Jon Roth became popular as the lead guitarist for the Scorpions in the band's early days and he was one of the initial members of the neoclassical metal genre. He was the main songwriter and occasional lead singer in the band, releasing for studio albums between 1974 and 1977. 1978 would see the release of the live album Tokyo Tapes. Tokyo Tapes would go on to sell over one million copies and go gold in many other countries. Roth would leave the band following the Taken By Force Tour.
