Scorpions drummer James Kottak returns to the stage after jail drama

Rocker James Kottak has returned to the stage for the first time since he was arrested and jailed in Dubai earlier this year (14).

The drummer performed with his Scorpions bandmates in Rotterdam, Holland on Thursday (27Nov14) and returned to the stage to wrap up the group's Rock'n Roll Forever Tour in Brussels, Belgium on Saturday (29Nov14).


Kottak spent a month behind bars in the United Arab Emirates earlier this year after he was found guilty of being drunk and abusive at a Dubai airport, removing his pants during a rant about Muslims.


Swedish drummer Johan Franzon filled in for Kottak during his jail time and subsequent rehab recovery.
