BiographyEdit

Rosenthal was a member of Uli Jon Roth's band Dawn Road and became a member of the Scorpions along with Roth and Francis Buchholz. He appeared on the album Fly to the Rainbow before leaving the band to do his compulsory service with the army. He later appeared in Eloy[1] and wrote the lyrics for their 1977 album Ocean as well as for the album Dawn.

Rosenthal's style as a drummer is unique and was a major contributor to Eloy's most successful years (1976–1979) during which they produced "Ocean", "Dawn", "Eloy Live", and "Silent Cries Mighty Echoes".
