Jürgen Rosenthal is a German rock drummer. He was a member of Uli Jon Roth's band Dawn Road, but became a member of the Scorpions, along with Roth and Francis Buchholz, when Dawn Road was annexed into a lineup with Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker. He appeared on one album, Fly to the Rainbow, before having to leave to do his compulsory service with the Army. He later appeared in Eloy,[1] and wrote the lyrics for their successful 1977 album Ocean. He also wrote the lyrics to another successful album Dawn.

Jurgen Rosenthal's style as a drummer is unique and it would appear to be a major contributor to Eloy's most successful years (1976-1979) during which they produced Ocean, Dawn, Eloy Live, and Silent Cries Mighty Echoes. The music that Eloy put out during 1976 to 1979 has many fans all around the world due to its unique and enchanting character..... Some would say: "Progressive Rock at its best".
