Will U.D.O. come to Sweden Rock 2010 ?
I think yes!!!
--------------------------------------------------
Will you add some tourdates in the Stuttgart/Ludwigsburg area?
I can’t say something at the moment!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------
In which city did you shoot the “Black And White” video?
Nuremberg (Germany)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Can I get something from the band? A pick for example, or an Udo gloves? These things are relicts for me.
Contact the fanclub, please !!

Question of Péter Szikszsay / 09-10-29
Who was the main vocals on the song "Seawinds"?
Peter Baltes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Musically I can’t say anything bad, the last albums were awesome! But the guitars are a little bit annoying. They sound very distorted and not “clear” anymore like (in the past) in ACCEPT or (today) in HAMMERFALL. What’s the reason?
I think that’s a matter of taste – we like it this way!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you think (or the record company) in the possibility to make another video for "Dominator"?
There’s nothing planned
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know a band called TIERRA SANTA (or any Spanish metal band)?
I have already heard the name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritchie Blackmore said in a interview he had no motivation for playing "Smoke On The Water" in the shows. U.D.O. always play "Balls To The Wall", "Princess Of The Dawn" and "Metal heart". I think this is not about motivation... but I wanted to know if sometimes you have thought in the possibility don't play "Princess" or "Balls" (for example). Sometimes, you don't play "Fast As A Shark" in some shows and people enjoy with "Burning" or "I'm A Rebel". My question is... perhaps are there no ACCEPT songs for substitute "Balls"- "Princess"- "Metal Heart" in any show?
We will play the mentioned songs on the future
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Me and other fans have asked you about ACCEPT Reunion 2005 and why there is no a DVD... Udo, some people say you are the responsible. They say now a DVD will never be released because you are angry with Wolf-Peter for the new "ACCEPT reunion". I don't believe this but I want to know your opinion about it and, again, why is so difficult to release a live dvd of the reunion 2005.
It's got nothing to do with me – I don’t have a problem with Wolf or Peter! The only thing I know why the DVD won’t be released – the sound quality were not good enough!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you play "Wrong Side Of Midnight" and "Starlight" in Aarhus?
Maybe!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I read an article by German artist Paul Van Dyk and he mentioned that you were 1 of the artists that opened doors for German musicians. Are you familiar with this artist and have you ever met him?
It’s good to hear but I only know his name – I have never met him
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The remix of the brilliant title "Cry Soldier Cry" makes the over the top song "Platchet Soldat", on which it sends cold shivers up and down my spine even after hearing it 10 times. Is there a release of the remix as "Cry Soldier Cry Mark II" planned?
No
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That you campain for environment and animal protection is well known and praisable but why do you work together with the narrow-minded and intolerant organization called PETA?
animal testings – that’s the reason
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will the tour lead you to Chemnitz?
sadly not
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know if there is chance that you will play "Bleeding Heart", "Don't Go Stealing My Heart Away " and "All Or nothing" on the tour?
this songs won’t be on the setlist
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I read that you are coming to Sweden in January 2010 but when will we be able to see the tourdates ?
on our homepage as soon they are confirmed
------------------------------------------------------------
Do you wanna play in Brazil?
We are working on a South America tour
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When you going to Russia, would you like to visit Siberia, especially Krasnoyarsk?
next year in 2010
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is a big metal festival here in Belgium: Graspop (maybe you have heard of it?). In 2010, it's the 15th anniversary of this festival. Is there any chance you will be performing?
Would be cool to play there!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When I compare "Mastercutor Alive" and "Live In Russia", the sound on "Live In Russia" is considerably clearer, harder and more powerful than on "Mastercutor Alive". For me "Live In Russia" has more power. Did you make something different?
We left the sound on “Mastercutor Alive“ more rough!!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Which cover do you like best in the U.D.O. and ACCEPT?
“Mastercutor” and “Balls”
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How old were you when you're married?
35
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have You and other members of the band watched the new clip of RAMMSTEIN? And what impressions do each of you has about it?
Im not overly excited about it – I don’t think that RAMMSTEIN need it to shoot a porno clip!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who - if any - will be support band you when play in Denmark?
At the moment I don’t know
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi, have you checked the number one song on Heavymetalradio.com this week? Did the album reach up to your expectations? And do you think the outcome of the album would have been different if you had considered rejoining ACCEPT?
not really
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you be making a video for the song "The Bogeyman"?
No
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was wondering if you plan to play China anytime soon?
We try to play 1 or 2 shows in China
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You were together with GUNS N' ROSES and ZODIAC MINDWARP on US tour in 1988… had the “Gunners” already their superstar affectations or how did you manage the tour with them? Maybe you have an anecdote for us…
At that time they were more or less normal except Axl!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tell me: there is some chance to come in Romania?
I hope so – at the moment Romania is not on the tour schedule

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Younger fans, in the age 16, want to see you, more than ever... But you have to be over 18 Y/O to attend the concert, and they won't let you have a grownup over 18 with you. It breaks my heart, seriously. I love U.D.O., and I just hate that I can't see you live. What do you think about that?
This is a shame but you can probably do nothing
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why not play never in your concert the "Run Through The Night" ACCEPT song from "Predator" album?
a good idea
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In which city is the indoor swimming pool of the video “Mean Streets” ?
Nuremberg (Germany)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tell to me please, whether you plan to hold concerts in Ukraine if plan that when?
in 2010 but I don’t know yet when

Will you come to Chile, last year you can't come to my country.
I can’t say anything at the moment
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know if you will work with other muscians in the future or maybe there is already something in the pipeline??? Like with DORO,LORDI,MAJESTY and ALEX PARCHE PROJECT.
Not at the moment
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you think about the ACCEPT cover band ”ACCEPTED”… do you think it’s good that they imitate everything… the show, the outfits?
I don’t know them
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there any chance of you coming to the UK to play some dates?
In the beginning of 2010
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the great debut album by ACCEPT, the producer is listed as Frank Martin. Can you tell me a little bit about him, Udo? Do you know any other groups he has been involved with?
No idea what he has done
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are there any ACCEPT live recordings from the time before "Balls To The Wall", apart from the song "Burning" of the "Breaker" album?
as far as I know nothing official

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have read in an interview that you have 5 songs from the “Dominator“ session left over. Will the fans have the chance to hear the songs somehow? Maybe a special edition of “Dominator” with a bonus cd including the 5 songs.
For sure you will here them – we will see in which manner
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can we maybe count on shows in North Germany in the beginning of 2010??
We will still show up in Hamburg this year
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why does every song have to be a fan sing along?...It would be nice to hear you sing the chorus solo more often!
I will think about it
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you look forward to playing festivals with ACCEPT on the card?
I don’t think this will happen
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the moment I couldn’t say
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your singing on the last two albums is as good as the early days of ACCEPT. Do you put this down to the material or not smoking anymore?
the song material
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is it right that “I’m A Rebel” originally was written for AC/DC?
Yes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I think that "Dominator" will be a great success for the band! Which is your best selling album?

Which are the singers that had a big impact in your vocals when you where young?
Ian Gillan - Bon Scott - Ozzy
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is it true that you had a heart attack in the past?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know what Australian fans can do to get U.D.O. to come to Australia.
Find a good promoter to bring us to Australia
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will Igor Gianola play both with U.D.O. and JORN on tour this autumn?
I don’t think so
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you release a DVD with the videoclips "The Wrong Side Of Midnight", "Mean Streets" and the “Making-Of Mean Streets" in the near future? It would be cool to release a DVD-EP (like “Thundervision”) with "Black And White" and the “Making of - Black and white".
Good idea – we have to talk about it with the record company if they are interested to release something like that.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We will play 2 or 3 ACCEPT songs for sure… maybe some more. At the moment I don’t know if there is a signing session, too.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On your website there is the really cool song “Schtil“ with ARIA as video. Sadly I can’t get the single. Is there a possibility to offer it as download on your website?
First we ought to get the rights – but it’s no bad idea…

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the “Dominator” album there are some nice piano/keyboard- and Spanish guitar parts but the booklet doesn't mention the musicians that play those instruments. So my questions are:
Who plays the piano/keyboard? Stefan & Fitty
Who plays the Spanish guitar? Stefan
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After two successful albums with this "modern" sound are there any plans to go back to the roots and make an album with "classic" Heavy Metal sound?
Song-like we are always “back to the roots“. Sound-like we should fit to today’s “hearing wonts”. Furthermore it’s no longer possible because everything is recorded digital today.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there a possibility to see U.D.O. in Finland this year or do us Finns have to wait for the year 2010?
I don’t know if this year – otherwise in the beginning of 2010
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will the song “Bleeding Heart“ be released in Germany, too? Why isn’t the song on the German edition of the album?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who is responsible for which songs you play live (setlist) ?
We decide it all together
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will U.D.O. play the song “X-T-C“ live some day?
This can happen without further ado

Sadly I can’t answer the question – I hope we will play in Serbia sometime
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm interested in fangear, is there a way to buy any gear at all (for example t-shirts)?
at the moment only on tour
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was talking to Mike from DESTRUCTION when you played in Alternavigo. He told me you guys had never met before, man was he serious?
That’s true

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just wanted to know if you plan on making a greatest hits album with all-new studio versions of classic U.D.O. songs such as "Animal House" and "Faceless World"?
There are 2 “Best of” albums available; “Best of” from GUN Records and another on from AFM Records
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Although I like very much the "U.D.O. second era" is strange to me there aren't live releases (cd/dvd) from the early years of the band 1987-1991 (and I don't talk about the "Giants Of Rock" 1991). Do you think in the possibility to edit anyone in the future?
There is nothing available
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Udo, what were you thinking in naming the band? I heard from friends it means "United Dipstick Operation"… is it true or is U.D.O. in general a short form similar like V. Kipelov (Ex-Aria-vocalist) and his band KIPELOV? What does it mean if it’s a short form?
It’s simply my first name…
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whose was the idea to name the band ACCEPT? With other words, What do you ACCEPT?
Michael Wagener and me
------------------------------------------------------------
Will you come to Vienna this time?
I hope so

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there any news about Lorenzo Milani?
No, there is sadly no contact anymore
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

well, this can happen
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How good can you live from the music? Do you now earn more with the royalty with your involvement in the ACCEPT or with the U.D.O. songs?
always from both
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know, as a long ago you began to smoke and as far as your voice changed hereupon
Ich was 14 – I never had problems with my voice / I stopped smoking 5 years ago
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My question is about the "Download Shop". Is gonna be more shows for buy in the web shop; specially from the "Thunderball" and upcoming "Dominator" tour?
From the “Dominator“-tour yes – sadly nothing exists from “Thunderball”
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If ACCEPT will pay U.D.O. - U.D.O. will open ACCEPT next tour ?
No
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When will the band tour Russia ?
I think in 2010
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you feel about the idea: "Live online communication on the site?" Ask a question - get answers. Within an hour, at a certain time. Once every three months or six months. Fans can ask questions via the internet or by telephone. Why not use this possibility, direct communication? This is so need to see their idols and to communicate directly.
We will do it in the future

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've been emailing the “02 Academy” about if they were expecting U.D.O. to appear at “The London Underworld” in the near future since they have a new album coming out soon? I had a reply saying that U.D.O. should be playing at “The Islington Academy” on the 21st or 23rd November! Is this true?
I don't know anything about it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question of andris krastins / 09-07-30

For the album, "Russian Roulette" were prepared twelve songs. Two of them were not included on the disc. What is interesting, and whether they were used at a later date? Perhaps this is "X-T-C" and "Generation Clash" ?
No, they were never used and they were not the songs “X-T-C“ and “Generation Clash“
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question of andris krastins / 09-07-30
Remained unpublished, and a special version of the song "Heaven Is Hell" in which church choir city Pulheim, a suburb of Cologne. Can it, somewhere to buy?
There was never recorded a version of the song with a church choir....

And why there is not the song "Love Child"? However, from a video-interview group MOTLEY CRÜE, we know that on that day ACCEPT also performed the song "Love Child".
I don’t know it – is it a bootleg ???
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is your favourite food, sport, movie, rock-metal group?
Steak - swimming - Borat - RAMMSTEIN
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am looking for the artist who photographed the band ACCEPT, for the cover of “Russian Roulette”. Someone at the ACCEPT website sent me to you. Have you any idea?
It was Didi Zill
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What was in inspiration for the girl in the "Black And White" video to wear the beard? Who’s idea was that?
The whole concept came from the video company
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know if the new album brought you a step ahead in singing live because you sing there more versatile. I was you at the “Rock Head” in Mainz. There you emphasized the really high parts like in the early years, for example the word "Mysterious" at “Metal Heart”. I couldn’t hear that on the live album. Or is the voice different after a such a long tour since your singing niveau is surely not easy to keep on that level.
On a tour you don’t have the brilliance in your voice after playing a lot of shows in a row – but that’s
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Might you conceive a little guest appearance on a ACCEPT show or even on an album?
No
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Udo, a lot of your answers to questions are that the record company owns the rights to a lot of the songs and product. Does that mean that you no longer receive payment for these songs being played on radio or in movies?
Indeed they have the rights but you get your money therefore further on

U.D.O. Out For World Domination

http://www.rockstarweekly.com/content/view/1067/207/

Udo Dirkschneider, the former lead vocalist of Accept, and present lead vocalist of the German heavy metal band U.D.O has just finished touring with their new album Dominator that was released earlier this year on August 21. Dominator is a named after a song of the same name, continuing with the character Mastercutor from their last album Mastercutor.
“The meaning of the lyrics (for Dominator) is people try to dominate other people in politics, in private life, in many things and in many ways and so the character from the last album was the Mastercutor is no longer the master but is now the dominator, for he dominates the whole album in a way.” Dirkschneider reveals.

We have discovered that when we writing songs, we write the lyrics first which seems to be very unique. For nearly 10 years we changed our writing process, We start with the lyrics and look for a good hook line and melodies with the vocals and then you put the music on. Like on the song The Bogeyman on our new album, You know what kind of music the lyrics needs. In this way, it’s much easier for us to write songs” says Dirkschneider.

Dirkschneider talks more about the album, about his days in Accept in our interview. Prepare for world domination.

Congratulations on Dominator. It’s your 12th UDO album. All of them are very consistent and you know you’re listening to an U.D.O. album, but is there anything you might be doing differently in the studio now that you might not have on the first one?

Ответы выложены в аудио (см. ссылку на эту страницу.)

Why did you decide to call the album Dominator?


I think I’ve read on several occasions that you write the lyrics to your songs first. Is that the usual process for you and why do you do it that way?


So the topics of the songs are really important to you then?


Are there any topics that you’ve wanted to write about, but you have trouble getting the right words together?


To me U.D.O. is in many ways a continuation of Accept. Was that always your plan?


Is that history with Accept important to you?


Accept was doing really well and then it disappeared. What happened?


Accept went out with KISS and Motley Crue in North America. Dan from RockStar Weekly was at those shows. Those were big tours at the time. Was that a great experience?


What are the main differences between Accept and U.D.O.?


You seem to be a happy man with U.D.O. Is being at the helm of your own band a better way to be?


With U.D.O. you’ve been able to use keyboards and you also did a duet with Doro. Those things might have been out of place on an Accept album, but with U.D.O., the fans have been very welcoming to new ideas. Why do you think that is?


Balls To The Wall was such a worldwide success that it will probably be associated with you for a long time. Is there a song that you’ve written that you wish was U.D.O.’s defining song?


What’s you favourite song on the Dominator album? Why?


Out of all the U.D.O. songs, and someone was listening to your music for the first time, What song would you choose for them to listen to?



Is there anyone or band in particular that inspires you to play the music the way you do?

SHOW IN VÄSTERÅS CANCELLED!!!

Because of technical problems U.D.O. can't play the show on January 29th in S-Västerås. The show will not take place but we try to book a replacement show in Sweden at the moment. The show in Gothenburg on January 30th will definitely take place!!!

==============================================================================================

I would like to know if you will work together with LORDI again or if you won’t do it again?
I could happen again but not at the moment.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I played “Fast As A Shark” recently at a party where an older couple was visiting from Poland (didn't speak English). The beginning started "Hi di hi do hi da...." and all of a sudden the old Polish woman completely FREAKED OUT, saying it was an old Nazi song. Is this true, or is it something the Polish people may view as Nazi but really is just a nursery rhyme that happened to be in the time of Nazi rule?
We don’t know it exactly – it is an old folk song called “Ein Heller und ein Batzen“ ! For us it’s unknown if this is or was a Nazi song.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I saw you at BYH festival 2003, and was blown away. WHO IS YOUR SOUNDMAN????! He is amazing, and you and your songs are eternally incredible.
Thank you for the compliment. ARNE VON SCHILLING is our sound engineer.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have seen you perform live on a few locations, and one thing that strikes me is that you always have had a nearly perfect sound. On festivals, when you get on stage, all of a sudden the sound is very good. Even though it has sucked on the bands before. I’ve seen you in small rock clubs where I played myself and I know that it is hard to get a good sound in there, but then you play and the sound is perfect! Sometimes you have had the backline on sides of the drumriser and sometimes on the sides, sometimes you use front wedges and sometimes only sidefills (and / or in-ear monitors, I don´t know) Nothing seems to matters, you still always have a great live sound. Perhaps this is one of you business secrets, and you don’t want to tell, I don´t know. I guess that you use very talented Sound Engineers that really know what they are doing and that it is heavy metal they are working with and not some lame pop/disco act. Usually German bands tends to have a good live sound. So how do you guys do it? I would really like to get in contact with the engineers that you use, I don’t know if you use different ones or if you stick to one special person.
That’s correct, we alway work with very good sound engineers. But that’s not all. The teamwork between the band and the sound engineer is important and the band has to know what they want.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have a U.D.O. greatest hits album called "Independently". Both disc and cover look official and it was a 2003 release. Is this a bootleg or an official U.D.O. release because i can find no info on this album.
This must be a bootleg.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Why booklet of cd "Infected" was so poor ?
It’s no album it’s an ep and the dimensions of the booklet depends on the record company.
------------------------------------------------------------
In tour should be a support band ?
At the moment it’s unknown who will go on tour with us.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Are there t-shirts with the new album cover “Dominator“ available. I really like the cover and would like to order some.
No, not yet
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know who wrote (music/lyrics) the next songs:
Number For A Number
Scream killers
Hardcore Lover
Run!
Free Or Rebellion
All by Kaufmann/Dirkschneider except “Run!“ which is from Wolfgang Boehne
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When will we get all the dates of the tour 2009/2010?
I can’t answer it at the moment – take a look at our homepage from time to time
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My first question is about the song “Restless & Wild”. Usually you play only the first half of it together with “Son Of A Bitch”. I’ve heard lots of bootlegs along with the official live albums by both bands, ACCEPT and U.D.O., and it was always the same. Only once that rule has been broken, I mean the “Nailed To Metal (the missing tracks)” album. Why have you decided to play the songs this way? Who came up with the idea?
We wanted to have the complete song recorded. It was Stefan’s and my idea.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The second one concerns another song “Turn Me On”. During the ACCEPT reunion tour you performed the song without singing the third verse. Were there any reasons for that or was it just a made-on-a-spot decision?
Wolf
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Does the band’s income depend on the number of sold copies of your albums in foreign countries or do you get paid only once, after signing the agreement with a foreign distribution company?
both
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Udo, as far as I understood, you were however called for participating in reunion, but without Stefan Kaufmann. How did the participants of ACCEPT explain the unwillingness to see in composition Stefan Kaufmann?
I can’t answer it. You have to ask ACCEPT.
----------------------------------------------------
Do you have favourite new tracks from "Dominator", or is it too early to ask?
“Dominator “, “Black And White” , “Whispers In The Dark”
----------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know if you have any plans on touring the UK soon?
Sadly we don’t get offers from the UK; we would love to tour the UK after such a long time
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will U.D.O. or ACCEPT ever tour CANADA like in Montreal, Quebec or Ottawa, Ontario?
I can’t answer for ACCEPT. With U.D.O. we are working at full speed that we are able to tour Canada and the USA in 2010.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The band made a video clip for "The Arbiter" ... but U.D.O. don't played the song live (perhaps I'm wrong). Why? What's the reason U.D.O. didn't made a video for "The Bullet And The Bomb"?
We checked it out live but the song didn’t appeal to the fans live. We never targeted to make a videoclip for this song
--------------------------------------------------
Will you come to Athens (Greece) for a show?
We should hope so
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
In September you will play in FeZen Festival, Hungary. How long will be your show?
as far as I know 90 min

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you come back to Hungary with the Dominator tour after the festival season?
I think so
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will the return of ACCEPT effect that you play there songs? (Will you be able to continue to play them?)
Why their songs? These are mine and Stefan’s songs, too but we couldn’t play them under the name ACCEPT but U.D.O.. We will continue to play the songs!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there any possibility of a Glasgow (Scotland) date in your next tour ?
We would love to play there – sadly we don’t get offers
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At what stage of your career did you realise that you finally made it big in the Metal Scene? And is it any easier now that’s you've cracked it?
with “Balls To The Wall“ – sure it made a few things easier
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you sing "Trainride In Russia (Поезд по России)" fully on Russian language?
Yes, that would be possible, we could think about it
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are there any dates confirmed for the tour? And will you play a show in the North of Germany? Hamburg or Kiel or maybe even Flensburg?
For Germany only Duesseldorf and Karlsruhe are confirmed – but Hamburg will come for sure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What’s the reason for not playing "Trainride To Russia" (outside Russia, Ukraine...)?
We do it from time to time
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why Peter Szigeti, Frank Rittel and Thomas Franke left the band after the “Animal House” release? Do you still talk with them?
I can’t exactly remember – I think the attitude to the band was the reason! I’m talking to Peter and Frank Rittel from time to time
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have you ever thought about to use a foreign producer ( Bob Rock, Brendan O´Brien etc. ) for an U.D.O album ?
Not up until now but your day may come.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What kind of setlist can we expect in September at FeZen Festival, Hungary? (I'd be glad with more U.D.O. and less ACCEPT stuff this time.) How long the setlist will be? Will you come back to Hungary with the Dominator Tour?
Best of / U.D.O. & ACCEPT
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With ACCEPT alive again, do you think in the possibility to play another ACCEPT songs (of course, U.D.O. must play “Balls To The Wall”, “Metal Heart”, “Fast As A Shark”...) like “Ahead Of The Pack”, “Wrong Is Right”, “Don’t Go Stealing My Soul Away”, “Losers And Winners”, “Starlight”...?
maybe ...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How does ist happen that the naming rights on ACCEPT are not owned by you as founding member but by Wolf Hoffmann?
To put it simply – I missed to do it and somebody else was faster than I
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who is singing background vocals with you on the song "Azrael"?
a good friend of us; Michael Voss
--------------------------------------------------------------------
In 1987 I bought the “Animal House“ vinyl album in Hungary for 100 ”Ostmark“. On there cover was imprinted: "Incl. SUPER-TRACK -Lay Down The Law- by ACCEPT & U.D.O.". Later I bought the cd and the imprint disappeard from the cover. Was this track with your former ACCEPT bandmates or was it just for better marketing?
the track was with the ACCEPT colleagues
--------------------------------------------------------------
Are there actual girlie shirts of U.D.O. available???
Yes – we had them on our last tour and we will have it again on our next tour
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you come again to the “Hirsch“ in Nuremberg in autumn???
I can’t answer this question not as yet
-------------------------------------------------------
Will there be a fanclub meeting in the future???
We should target it
----------------------------------------------------------
Do you ever think you would ever play a show in Australia ?
hopefully one day we make it to Australia
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
What are some of your favourite cities to play when you toured the states?
New York - Chicago - L.A. - San Francisco - and many more
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are there plans for a comprehensive U.D.O. Box set with a best of, b sides, obscure live tracks, demos, etc?
not at the moment

===================================================================

When you going to came back to Monterrey, Mexico???
I think early next year
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Will you release a song book with guitar and bass tabs of the best U.D.O songs ?
We have to talk about it with our publishing company
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ACCEPT new lineup will be do good or bad for band U.D.O.?? (positive or negative )
The future will tell
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
What is the "way" you compose your song ? Do you also compose guitar ?
together with Stefan
----------------------------------------
When you are coming back to Estonia?
hopefully on our next European tour
-----------------------------------
Do you really love Russian things?
yes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do you hate reunions, but sing ACCEPT songs on your concerts?
Firstly I don’t hate reunions if the make sense!!! The Fans want to hear ACCEPT songs and I think I have a ball doing it. Finally I was a part of ACCEPT and Stefan Kaufmann, too and we will perform ACCEPT songs further on!!! Apropos it’s terrific that ACCEPT are back with Peter and Wolf you know. I’m happy that they make music together again! But it’s now reunion for me; its ACCEPT in another form. A reunion would be the lineup Wolf, Peter, Stefan K and my person. That’s what I would call a reunion
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Was "We're History" written about leaving ACCEPT or just relationships in general
just relationships in general
----------------------------------------------------
Where can we pre-order the new single "Infected"?
I believe you can’t pre-order the single now. You've got me there!. Ask somebody at AFM Records.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What do you think about the ACCEPT return? Did Wolf and Peter talked with you about the reunion?
No, we were surprised, too
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Why you don't play "Feelings" from a "Breaker" album on concert's?
Good suggestion – we will think about it
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Udo, what do you think about Peter’s and Wolf’s ACCEPT reunion? If they act as a real band (albums, tours etc.)… does it mean that U.D.O. can’t play ACCEPT songs anymore?
First this is no reunion for me: a reunion would be the lineup Wolf, Peter, Stefan K and me. For me it looks like Wolf and Peter have revitalized ACCEPT. I’m happy that they make music together again. I’m curious about the album which indeed will come!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Does U.D.O. have some remainders of t-shirts from the past tours? I’m looking primarily for shirts from the “No Limits” and “Solid” era and the first two albums.
Sorry, we can’t help you
--------------------------------------------------------
When are you gonna play a gig in Copenhagen again?
Hopefully on the next European tour
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know in which formats the following singles were released:
- They Want War
- Heart Of Gold
- Dancing With An Angel (promo)
- They Want War -> 7", 12" and as promo 12"
- Heart Of Gold -> 7"
------------------------------------------------------
Which album were released on vinyl after 1991?
- Holy
- Man And Machine
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Recently I saw the film " Wrestler" starring Mickey Rourke. Did producers of the film address You to use “Balls To The Wall” or was the song included in the film illegally?
They had to ask the record company because they own the rights.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IRON MAIDEN, AC/DC, METALLICA, DEEP PURPLE... has a lot of dvd´s. ACCEPT was a legend in the heavy metal music but... only has "Staying A Life". I suppose there will good live shows recorded from "Breaker", "Restless And Wild", "Balls To The Wall", "Russian Roulette", "Objection Overruled”... tours. What do you think about the possibility to release someone?
There is nothing available anymore as far as I know
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I speak in the name of all ACCEPT fans in Argentina and the world, please reunion with ACCEPT nowwwww. With all respect, Stefan play the guitar very well, but we want to hear more new material of ACCEPT.
They are back with a new singer – you can hear them on our U.D.O. website – have fun
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possible to make small clips from the studio where the record a new album?
We will do it during the next album recording

=============================================================================

Question of Andris Krastins :
Do not you think you use in your clips, or animation computer graphics?
This could be happen in our next videoclip which we will record in June
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question of Andris Krastins :
Why do not you include in your album of wonderful songs "Warchild"?
Shit happens – but you can download it now on our website
--------------------------------------------------------------
Question of Andris Krastins :
Would not you try to use the organ in your songs?
We do it sometimes but it’s not easy to hear because it’s more in the background
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question of andris krastins :
What do you think about these posers who especially talk about their great equipment and ask here for the band’s equipment? Do you tell them sometimes that it depends mainly on the person itself; the rhythm, the correct touch of the chords…. When it come to how to play good music with the guitar?
You answered the question by yourself – that’s right
--------------------------------------------------------------
Do you have contact Jorg Fischer now?
No
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you put the awesome ACCEPT Song “Restless & Wild” on the setlist in the near future?
This could happen on the festivals
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Actually I play guitar but somehow I don’t make big advances anymore… I know a lot of guitar chords which I can play fluently or play very fast… but what is the next step in guitar playing? How did you start? Would be cool to get some help.
Hmmm – I can’t give you an advice – practice, practice, practice – maybe taking guitar lessons!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have always woundered if there is a song you honestly don´t like but have to perform live because the fans like it so much? If so which one?
No
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is the difference of Stefan Kaufmann as main composer… compared to Wolf Hoffmann?? How do you both arrange the writing of the vocals? Is there a drastic difference ???
Let’s put it this way; I’m absolutely tine on the same musical wavelength and everything happens in co-operation – this wasn’t always the case with Wolf – many a time there were no considerations to the singer – and this made life not easier
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In 2009 you are celebrating your 30 year anniversary (1979 “Accept“), indeed you have founded ACCEPT in 1971 but I’m counting as from the first release. To this I have some questions:
Q: Is a biography of you in planned?
A: The biography is in process but it still will take a little bit until it is to be published
Q: Will you release a special “Best Of” (unplugged & orchestra versions of all your hits?
A: We have already thought of that.
Q: Is a DVD set or something like that planned with old U.D.O. and ACCEPT recordings?
A: No
Q: Or a rarities collections of unreleased songs?
A: There is nothing available…
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In what year there was on CD a first time in Japan, an album "Metal Heart" (1985? 1986?...)?
1985
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Interesting to see Stefan play the guitar nowadays. Was he always a good guitar player?
Yes, from the beginning. Actually he always enjoyed it more to play guitar then drums…
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who made the classic riff of the beginning in the "Balls To The Wall" song?
Stefan and Wolf
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are you going to record or join a project with some of the Russian group, as you've done with ARIA group?
not at the moment
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was just listening to a great album called "Faceless World" and one certain song really stood out: "Future Land". Now here's the question: is it even possible to think of "Future Land" to appear in the setlist of U.D.O? Please consider it even, 'cause that is one of the coolest U.D.O. tunes.
We all like “Future Land” a lot. It’s no bad idea to add the in song into set.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Which album of the ACCEPT reunion albums you consider the best one? Why do you think so, i.e. what are the reasons for this?
“Objection Overruled” – it’s a typical ACCEPT album like the people want to hear ACCEPT! Both album afterwards are far away therefrom in my opinion.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't know if you're in touch with the method of some bands recently: like JUDAS PRIEST, MOTLEY CRUE and others; they play (in order) an entire album of their carrier + another ones. Are you planning to do something similar in your next tour or for specials events?
We always try to build a setlist with a good balance of all albums
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where can I find U.D.O. merchandise?
Hopefully we can say it in the fall! We are working on it
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the meantime there are a lot of ”non album tracks” from U.D.O.! Have you thought about it to release them as “bonus” cd with one of the next albums?
Not a bad idea
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is it possible to get more information about Igor’s guitar and amp setup? Gibson & ESP guitars and Marshall amps can we see on all the pictures, but he has a few things plugged in between for sure???
At best ask Igor directly via his MySpace website.

===============================================================================================================

Is there video material from the first „U.D.O. –era” available especially from the “Animal House tour”? I’m interested in the “Faceless World Tour”, too.
Sadly no live concerts – only videoclips
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will be the sound of new album like the sound of one of the previous albums of U.D.O. or maybe ACCEPT? Or it will be anything totally new?
I can’t say it exactly yet – because we don’t have the exact song selection and the mix isn’t done, too.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will be in “Dominator” continued the theme of 2 last albums, or there will be new one?
It’s different - because there are news songs…. – but the base remains
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can we hope that you with the band visit Moscow this year and make us the happiest people?
We can’t say it not yet
-----------------------------------------------------------
What guitars and amps mark is used by both guitarists.
Gibson and Marshall
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Udo, I would like to know how is the situation with “Wacken“ ? Do you only play at “Wacken Rocks” or on the real “Wacken”, too?
As it is at the moment – both “Wacken Rocks” shows
-------------------------------------------------------------
What do you think that I tried to sing like you, I mean screaming vocal? As I suppose the results are good, because my father can't take the difference in real, I am't lying. Tried to ask this question when you were in St. Petertburg in Russia (online in radio).
It’s surely funny
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As vinyl fan I would like to know if the ACCEPT album ”Objection Overruled“ was released as black vinyl or only in CD format.
No, it wasn’t released on vinyl
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How is the new album coming along? Release date? What will it be called?
I can’t say anything about it yet – we are still working on it…!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What happend to "Breaker Records"?
At the moment there is only the U.D.O. back catalogue available on ”Breaker Records“
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will be possible an ACCEPT reunion for Wacken 2009?
I don't know anything about it
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you think that there is still a possiblity to release the ACCEPT Wacken show from 2005 on DVD? I believe that Stefan could fix it.
I can’t say anything about it because I have never seen the material
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have you ever thought of making a competition on the cover artwork of one of your albums? Like METAL CHURCH or STRYPER did that before. There are talented people among your fans…
no
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How does it happen that Stefan can’t play drums anymore because of his back but can finish a complete show with a Gibson Explorer (which isn’t leightweight). With what it has that got to do that he can play guitar but not drums?
It has something to do with the motion sequence which is completely different in playing drum – it has nothing to do with weight.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I haven’t heard the new “Mastercutor“ yet (but soon) and that’s why I can’t say nothing about the drums but why have you used a drum computer on “Mission Nr. X” for example respectively work with BFD-drum (or software like that)? I heard it immediately. It was really good programmed but you can hear it especially on the cymbals. I worship Stefan very much for his sound skills, especially his drum recordings on “The Last Chapter” for example: the snare slams really much… therefore I was really disappointed that you fall back on a technology like this where you are having a world champion with Stefan in the band as far as drum recordings concerned. Exactly the same software or drum computer he used on Tarek’s “Dawnrider”! (yes, I payed attention!).
Real drums are recorded and they are arranged with the computer afterwards
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whereas “Faceless World“ was your most sold record I’m interested in how much units you sold approximately. And if you got a golden record therefore… in which countries.
In the meantime the album isn’t the most sold anymore! Sadly we didn’t get a golden record for “Faceless World”.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your choirs are legendary in the meantime and I know you record them in a threesome. Is there everybody heard twice or more times ? How often do you sing the track so that it sound so brilliant?
in parts four times
-----------------------------------------------------
Your best moment in your career as a musician?
There are a lot – I would say the golden record for “Balls To The Wall” in the USA is in the top 5
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Will U.D.O. play at the “Metalway Festival” in Spain this year?
At the moment there is nothing in process of planning

=======================================================================================================================

Wouldn’t it be a cool thing to record a live DVD (maybe in Tuttlingen again; something like a “Part 2“) which includes songs you didn’t play a long time (or never) live? "Thunder And Lightning", "Heaven Is Hell", "Blitz Of Lightning", "Heart Of Gold" etc.
There will be released another U.D.O. DVD and then we will consider songs which are not on DVD now.
----------------------------------------------------------
What are the songs/albums you helped Robert Palmer with?
I never worked with him
----------------------------------------------
Any plans on future work with DORO?
not at the moment
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know if you will play in Solingen at the “Cobra“ again?
I can’t answer the question at the moment
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will there be again songs like "In The Darkness" and "They Want War"? Great and beautiful ones! And like "Fast As A Shark"?
If you mean the new album… there are some songs in this direction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you plan to come to Chile 2009?
We work on a South America tour but it’s not easy to find a good promoter
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How many songs will you play at Wacken?
I can’t say it at the moment because we don’t know yet how long we will play
---------------------------------------------------------------
Was there rivalry between ACCEPT and SCORPIONS?
I couldn’t say – we were and are still very good friends
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will U.D.O. make a song like "Keeper Of The Seven Keys" or "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" someday?
I don’t think so
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the first U.D.O. era there were a lot of guitarists (in every album there was a new guitar player with Mathias Dieth). Why Andy, Wolla, Peter departed the band?
in some way it didn’t fit
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you work with Wolf Hoffmann or Peter Baltes for a U.D.O. song someday?
why not if it works
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why ACCEPT didn't made a videoclip for the "Restless And Wild" album ("Princess Of The Dawn", "Fast As A Shark")?
Back then there was nothing planned by the record company
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Why there are no videos for "Holy" and "No Limits" albums?
No budget from the record company
--------------------------------------------------------
Was the ACCEPT show in Gernika 2005 recorded?
I’ve no idea.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why ACCEPT don't release a DVD for the fans if the Wacken show was filmed?
I think the sound was not good enough – but I don’t know it exactly because I didn’t have much to do with it
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I wonder how loud you really sing live...I mean do you really scream all you can or, are you singing in "Chatting Volume" and just amped it to 110?
Is always on the limit
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Good to see you are back on "Norway Rock Festival". Will you sing "Dancing With An Angel" together with DORO?? She plays the same night.
I don’t know yet – let’s see
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What do you think about "Balls To The Wall" being on the soundtrack of the movie "The Wrestler" ??
We are very proud that they have selected this song.
----------------------------------------------------
Were you popular in school?
No
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will you reissue the old shirts sometime or is there any chance to get the old shirts (especially the “Timebomb” shirt) as odds for example?
That’s no bad idea – maybe shirts of each album cover as limited edition

=============================================================================================

Are there any plans to distribute the "Mastercutor Alive" in the US?
I think there is something planned!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I wanted to know if in the near future, "Staying A Life" released on DVD in full version?

----------------------------------------------------------
Are you going to Norway soon?
I think we will come to Norway for sure on our European tour in 2009!
--------------------------------------------
Where can I find U.D.O. guitar tabs?
They don’t exist – but it’s a worth consideration!
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is the song "Son Of A Bitch" about politics, politician who tells lies?
It’s about promises made by record companies which are mostly lied!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Who did you make the effects on ACCEPT’s “Sounds Of War“?
This was made by the then producer – I don’t know how anymore!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Couple years ago you recorded a song called "Forever" with finnish pop-rock band STURM UND DRANG. I was wondering what is the reason/s you decided to work with them? Also have you heard the song and what you think about it? I don’t really like it because everytime you sing also the guy from STURM UND DRANG sings with his boring voice. What was the reason for blending the voice together and not giving you your own vocal parts?
I wasn’t really happy with the end mix
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LORDI song you recorded with them is better, cause there we can hear you sing, not just the bands singer. What do you think about the LORDI song and working with the band?
We had a great time und we are chummy
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Could it be interesting for you to listen to Russian ACCEPT-cover project? And where we can send demo?
to our management
----------------------------------------------
We want U.D.O., when come to Spain ?
in 2009 on the European tour
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just heard a live recording from one of your support shows at the “Russian Roulette” US-Tour and as always: you were the support and you were celebrated like the headliner. You can read it everywhere that you got hardly any support shows because most of the pretended headliners don’t want to do it anymore because they don’t wanna be upstaged by the support act. What’s about your efforts at the moment to act as support?
We don’t have a problem if we get the right offer.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
You once played with Russian metal band - ARIA. Do you have any plans to play with some other Russian bands?
Maybe on the next Russian tour
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have listened to an unofficial recording from Berlin in 1981. In 1981, ACCEPT played a certain song live which isn't included on any album. You introduced it with "Are you ready to boogie?" or something similar (I have heard it only in lousy quality). A bootleg states that the song is "Sinner (JUDAS PRIEST cover)" - which is entirely wrong. It does sound like you're singing a word like "sinner" in the chorus, but it could just as well be "freedom". I can't make out many words of the song at all. Anyway, a word is screamed out, and then you sing "all right" and "what a night". Do you remember this at all? Is it an ACCEPT original that was never recorded in a studio, or is it a cover song?
Sorry, I can’t remember
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you make a career training (if yes, which one) after school or did you start to play music immediately?
Partially / me by myself toolmaker
-------------------------------------------------------------
Who had the idea of the riff in "Walker Of The Dark"?
Stefan
---------------------------------------------
What kind of music do your children like?
CHILDREN OF BODOM / BILLY TALENT / MARLIN MANSON / OFFSPRING / MOTÖRHEAD
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is it true that SCORPIONS want Peter Baltes to join the band back in 1992 ?
I don’t know!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who is Albert Boehne?? Is "Azrael" a cover song, or a song made for U.D.O.?
No, it’s not a vover song – the song was written for U.D.O. based on a book called “Azrael” – Wolfgang Holbein is the author; Alberte Boehne is a composer!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you come to the rock festival "Rockweekend" in Kilafors, Sweden?
There are no plannings not yet!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How long do you plan the concert in Kavarna-Bulgaria (December 31st) to be?
2 hours
-------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know why Joerg Fischer departed ACCEPT in 1987 again?
It was never told to me!
-----------------------------------------------
Do you plan to once again come to Israel?
Not at the moment – we would love to come again for one or two shows!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Which era of U.D.O. you regard as the best, the first era 1987 - 1991 or the second from 1997 onward? And why do you think so?
The second as from 1997 – it’s more a band than before
------------------------------------------------------------
When you played in Tampere in 2006 on "Mission No. X tour" there was a man who was shooting the show and the audience: what has happened to that recording?
I don’t know!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who was the main composer of the "Princess Of The Dawn" song, was it Stefan?
All together
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to know the meaning, the facts of the song "Princess Of The Dawn"
It’s a phantasy story
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How many tracks or versions do exist from the song "I’m A Rebel" recorded by AC/DC? Is it possible to get copies of the existing recordings?
To my knowledge there only exists one 8-track demo recording which ought have the publisher SMV in Hamburg! But they won’t be able to give away copies because of legal reasons.

===========================================================================================================================

KAI HANSEN has released a best of album "Blast From The Past" on which he re-recorded all old songs with the current line-up. RUNNING WILD did it, too (“First Years Of Piracy“). Wouldn’t it be a good idea for your last best of album?
No – I think originals should stay original!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How do you pronounce the band’s name correctly? Ju-Di-O, Udo, Judo. Talking about you and your band with non-metal fans is mostly difficult. The following question comes up: “Do you mean Udo Juergens or Udo Lindenberg?
JU - DI - O is the best solution
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have you ever seen the movie ”The Accused” with Jodie Foster? In one scene she is in a record store and there is a poster of the “Metal Heart” poster on the wall.
No, I don’t know the movie!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No
--------------------------------------------
Will you come to Argentina in 2009?
We work on it!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's the main reason of the ACCEPT breakup, or who didn't want to do that anymore?
The main reason was told often enough in the meantime / basically it were Peter and Wolf including “nice” people of the record company and producers !
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why some songs from the Japan show(can't remember the title) aren't included in the "Metal Blast From The Past" DVD?
I don’t know
------------------------------------------------------
Do you have any contacts with the RAMMSTEIN guys?
I’m afraid not!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you remember what gun on “Russian Roulette” cover ? Is it a real one or just replica ? Me and my friends thinking it's the best cover work ACCEPT ever made, where can we know more about that cover and is any more photo from that photo session available anywhere ?
It wasn’t a real gun – I don’t know more photos than the cover
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’d like to know why in the early 80-s ACCEPT decided not to perform songs from the first two albums anymore.
It were played songs from the second Album “I'm A Rebel“ but not from the first one anymore! It’s good to hear that you like the first two albums too.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once I came across the demo that preceded the “Restless and Wild” album. Most of the songs on it sound pretty similar to the album versions like they are just bad copies. Yet two of them, Get Ready and Princess of the Dawn differ very much – a different chorus (Flaming Guitar Fire) in the former and a totally different solo in the latter. Udo, do you remember anything about recording that demo? Did the band record the demo and the album in the same studio? Did you have several versions of the same song and before the recording you just choose the better one or did you come up with the final versions during the recording process?
I don’t have any rememberance – the only thing that comes in my mind is that we didn’t like the Chorus Flaming Guitar Fire and the solo and we changed it!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did Herman Frank take part in the creating and recording the “Balls To The Wall” album or was he just a live guitarist?
He was more a live guitar player.
------------------------------------------------------
Was it you who played the organ in Heaven is Hell?
Either Stefan or Peter
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Udo, what do you think about the “Eat the Heat” album? What songs from it had been written before you left the band?
Essentially it’s a very good album – so far as I remember existed Generation Clash + XTC
----------------------------------------------------------
I wonder for how many years Udo had been smoking?
35 years
-----------------------------------------------
Is Stefan out of the drum playing for good?
Yes !!
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Next year is the 20th anniversary of the W:O:A. Will you play there ?
It might well be…
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In an interview in the end of 2005 you was asked if you will play Way Of Life on the "Mission no.X" tour, and your anwser was "Definitely". But in the setlist of the Lithuania show there wasn't that song. Not seen on that tour, not in the next one. What made you to change your mind?
There was no special reason – the song didn’t fit to the setlist! Forbearance is not acquittance.

----------------------------------------------
Do you remember what kind of guitar Mathias Dieth played on?
ESP

------------------------------------------
Did Jan Koemmet play on "Restless And Wild"? Was he part of the band when "Restless And Wild" was released? If so, why does the cover say Herman Frank?
No – he didn’t play on the album – everything was done by Wolf! We only played some show together! Herman Frank joined the band at the end of the production – that’s the reason why his name appeared on the cover.

--------------------------------------------------

No

-------------------------------------------------------------
Why did you cover Lovemachine from SUPERMAX in 1998 – didn’t you have enough songs of your own?

May be, my question is stupid :), but on which Hi-Fi models will be better to hear U.D.O. and ACCEPT?
This is always a matter of taste....

--------------------------------------------------------------
Why don’t you put Break The Rules on the next “Best of” album?
We released a “Best of” album in the end of 2007 – it will take a while until the next “Best of” album – maybe the song will be on this one!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know if there are any books available about ACCEPT / U.D.O.? There is NOTHING on internet.
From ACCEPT there were books from “Balls To The Wall“ and “Metal Heart” available but they are not on the market anymore.

Do you know whatever happened to producer Dirk Steffens? Is he alive and well? Still involved with music?
Sadly I don’t know!!!
----------------------------------------------
Why didn't play Stefan in 2005 with ACCEPT?
They absolutely want Stefan to play drums (which is not possible as is well known because of his back trouble); they don’t want him on guitar……..!
-------------------------------------------------------
Ever think about releasing a U.D.O. Box set with extras including DVD materials?
There is no such thing in the pipeline!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think EMG !!

We are working on this - it's always a problem with the rights !!!

I was wondering how you do those incredibly awesome backing vocals in the chorus of tracks such as Blitz of Lightning, Lost Passion, the pre-chorus of Thunderball and a countless amount of ACCEPT songs?
In ACCEPT it was Peter Baltes and Stefan Kaufmann and me - in U.D.O. it was Mathias Dieth, Stefan Kaufmann and me !!! By the way thanx for the compliment !!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you remain at this ”gothic style“ or is it only period? I liked you much more until “Thunderball”.
Gothic style – I never have heard somebody saying this! Sorry, I can’t describe our music as “gothic music” and talking about the next album – I can’t say something about it by now!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In 1996 you recorded Metal Gods for a tribute album. You later played that song on Sweden Rock Festival (if I remember correctly). What year was that?

---------------------------------------------------------
What year of issuing of "Hungry Years" album ? In different sources i see different information.
1986

-----------------------------------------------------------------
What is about "Midnight Highway" album ? Is it official or not ?
No, it is not!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------
What vinyl record I see in "Wrong Side Of Midnight" video ?
I have no idea – it was decoration

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why haven't you ever thought of asking Herman Frank to join in the band U.D.O.?
Herman never was an option because he was busy in a lot of projects!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is it possible to come to Tampere, Finland, on the next tour? Why did you pass Finland on your "No Limits" and "Holy" tours?
We would like to play in Tampere again but it depends on the promoter if he books shows in Finland!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I wonder if there was a time when you think about to stop playing music and do something else?
No, I never had thoughts like this!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've been trying to find the song composers for some of the U.D.O. albums without success. The albums I am unable to identify the composers of U.D.O tracks on are:
1) “Faceless World“ / Stefan Kaufmann & Udo Dirkschneider
2) “Holy“ / Stefan Kaufmann & Udo Dirkschneider
3) “Live From Russia” / ACCEPT & Kaufmann - Dirkschneider
4) “Nailed To Metal - The Missing Tracks” / ACCEPT & Kaufmann - Dirkschneider

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We hope we will play on our next tour 2009 in Bulgaria again!

---------------------------------------------------------------
What are the current relationship with Wolf, Peter and Jorg?
I’m on phone with Wolf and Peter from time to time – I haven’t heard something from Jorg since 1988!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before the “Mastercutor” release, “No Limits” was my favourite U.D.O. album (Freelance man and Raise the crown are classics for me). In some magazines I have read you don’t like very much this album. Is this truth? Why? In the shows U.D.O. don’t play songs from this album.
I didn’t mean the songs but rather the sound of the album! Maybe we will play songs from the “No Limits” album again on our next tour..

--------------------------------------------------------
Will be there an EP (as in “Mission Nº X” and “Mastercutor”) before the new album release?
This depends on the record company and not on the band!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you sometimes going to concerts, alone, with friends or family? And if yes what was the last bands, artists?
With my family – the last band I saw live was BILLY TALENT – the next one will be TINA TURNER!!!

We are all waiting for your show in Russia this November. What songs do you plan to play - anything from ACCEPT?
We don’t know it exactly at the moment – for sure some ACCEPT songs!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's your personal attitude to Russia and our heavy metal fans in Russia?
We like the mentality of the fans in Russia!

----------------------------------------------------------
I ask myself for considerable time where U.D.O. was founded? Some people say Wuppertal and others say Solingen. What do you say?
ACCEPT was founded in Solingen! U.D.O. is another story because the musicians are from different countries!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw the best concert ever in my whole life and it was when you guys played in a town called Skoevde in Sweden in a little place called Valhalla. So my question is will you come there one more time or will it just be in Gothenburg or Stockholm if you come to Sweden one more time?
We hope we will play more shows in Sweden and not only in Stockholm and Gothenburg but this depends on the Swedish promoter!!!
------------------------------------------------------------
Do you have a favourite group?
DIO - MOTORHEAD - JUDAS PRIEST - OZZY - KISS - MOTLEY CRUE - METALLICA - RAMMSTEIN and much more – I’m not committed on one band

----------------------------------------------
Are you familiar with producer Dirk Steffens first solo album from the seventies called "The Seventh Step". If so, do you like it , and was it ever a musical inspiration to you or any of your band mates?
I never ever heard something about that!
-----------------------------------------------
Will you be touring into Canada anytime in 2009 and if so will it be with a big line up or just U.D.O.?
We try our best!!!

------------------------------------------------------------
What do you think “Guitar Hero” mean for heavy metal? Is there any chance too see more ACCEPT or U.D.O. songs in this game or another game?
maybe – sadly I don’t have any control about it.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Was the song Run! meaning to be a movie song?
was supposed to be one

----------------------------------------------------------
Come to Finland with VANIZE? When the tour 2009 starts?
We don’t know at the moment when the tour 2009 will start - VANIZE don’t play live anymore

--------------------------------------------------
Will "Mastercutor Alive" be sold domestically in Canada or will it only be available as an import?
I can’t answer it at the moment.

---------------------------------------------
I was checking out the “Mastercutor” album, which rocks by the way, and was wondering about tablature for the Walker Of The Dark song. I would love to learn that song. Is there any way of getting tab for the song?
Not at the moment

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question about ACCEPT logo. Who created it ? What about logo with lion's head (or it's not a lion ?) What about classic and most popular logo (1983 - 1986) ?
The lion logo was my idea – the classic logo afterwards was the record company’s idea.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
You were on tour back in 1981 with JUDAS PRIEST, so what relations was between you and JUDAS PRIEST?
very good; we learnt a lot from PRIEST

----------------------------------------
You were born in Wuppertal. When and why you going Solingen ?

I don’t have one

--------------------------------------------------------
Who is man in the cowl in ACCEPT video Protectors Of Terror, is it Stefan Kaufmann ?
correct advised!!!

----------------------------------------------------------
ACCEPT is my favourite band... but now it’s dead. It’s only an opinion but don’t you think there are too much ACCPET songs in the future DVD?
I don’t think so – the people always asking for ACCEPT songs - if there were no ACCEPT songs on the DVD the people would have grumble, too.

Пожаловаться на это сообщение Информация о сообщении Вынести предупреждение  





Андрис, благодарю. 8)) Очень здорово, что есть возможность читать ответы на вопросы фанов непосредственно от Удо.
:grin: Я наконец нашёл ещё одно подтверждение, теперь уже непосредственно от маэстро Диркшнайдера о неучастие Германа Франка в сочинении и студийной записи песен АССЕРТ:

Did Herman Frank take part in the creating and recording the “Balls To The Wall” album or was he just a live guitarist?
He was more a live guitar player.


А вот как уходил от прямого ответа об участии/неучастии сам Герман Франк:
http://www.virtuosityone.com/herman_int.htm отрывок:

You were in Accept for 2 of their most popular albums “Restless & Wild” and “Balls To The Wall”, what was your contribution to those albums?
Ha! Ha! No Comment…. Its way too many years ago my friend!

How were the guitar duties divided in Accept?
Sorry, as I said, it’s in the past.

Кстати, возможно в следующем году один наш форумчанин предоставит интересное интервью с Германом Франком. :|)
Ещё раз хочу отметить, что маэстро Диркшнайдер более откровенен и открыт, нежели его бывшие (очень занятые ныне) коллеги из АССЕРТ. Например, форум Удо по-прежнему доступен для чтения без всякой регистрации, в отличии от закрывшегося месяц назад форума формации Ассерт.

U.D.O. am 27.06.2003 beim Bang Your Head in Balingen



Am Freitag den 27.06.2003 hatte ich einen Interviewtermin mit Udo Dirkschneider dem Frontmann von U.D.O. Bei herrlichem Sonnenschein erwartete er mich schon Backstage.

GR: = Michael Tölle für die GERMAN ROCK NEWS

DU: = Udo Dirkschneider für U.D.O.

GR: Hallo Udo, nachdem wir uns letztes Jahr in Ulm bei eurer Man And Machine Tour gesehen haben habe ich dann mal die Tourdaten gesehen, und ihr seid ja in der ganzen Welt rumgekommen. Wie viele Konzerte habt ihr eigentlich auf der Tour gespielt?

UD: Also, mit der Man And Machine Tour sind wir so knapp an die einhundert Konzerte gekommen, so mit allem drum und dran.

GR: Du sagtest auch das ihr dann in die Staaten und nach Australien wolltet.

UD: Das hatte nicht geklappt, das werden wir mit der nächsten Tour nachholen. Mit der nächsten Tour werden wir erst einmal ganz intensiv Südamerika machen. Wir werden so exotische Länder wie Peru, Bolivien und was weiß ich noch alles bereisen. Da wird im Moment gerade dran gearbeitet. Also die nächste Tour wird eigentlich noch länger als die letzte Tour.

GR: Also, jetzt mal ganz ehrlich du hattest mir ja verraten das du bei deinem Alter schon die fünf davorstehen hast, also du bist jetzt über fünfzig, wie schaffst du das eigentlich?

UD: Ja, was soll man da sagen, ich versuche mich so gesund wie möglich zu ernähren, keine Drogen, ab und zu kann man ruhig mal einen über den Durst trinken, wir sind ja schließlich nicht im Kloster (Lachen), ich versuche eigentlich gesund zu bleiben denn sonst könntest du das auch gar nicht machen. So jeden Tag Party und so, das würdest du gar nicht durchhalten. Man darf nicht vergessen, wenn man mal über die Fünfzig ist da darf man sich nichts vormachen, da kannst du den Körper auch gar nicht mehr so belasten. Also muss man gucken, wenn man das lange machen will, das habe ich eigentlich vor, dass man sich fit hält. Das versuche ich auch und das klappt ganz gut.

GR: Jetzt kommt ja die neue Scheibe raus von dir.

UD: Ja, ein Live Album und eine DVD Ende August.

GR: Ich habe auf einem Vorab-Cut den ich von AFM bekommen habe, da steht drauf The Missing Tracks. Was ich aber gehört habe waren dann alte U.D.O. und Accept Titel. Warum jetzt Missing Tracks?

UD: Das sind die Tracks die wir nicht auf das Live From Russia Album getan haben. Wie zum Beispiel Metal Heart, Balls To The Wall, Restless And Wild und noch andere Songs. Man muss dazu sagen wir hatten ein Voting mit den Fans gemacht und da hatten wir abstimmen lassen welche Titel gewünscht wurden und das haben wir dann auf das Russia Album drauf gemacht. So kann man sagen, das es jetzt ein Album mit mehr Accept Klassikern wird und der Rest aus dem Voting für das Russia Album, was da nicht mehr drauf gepasst hat. Also, mehr geht dann auch nicht mehr.

GR: Was ich jetzt schon vorab gehört habe war so heftig das ich schwer durch meine Wohnung gebangt bin. Dabei habe ich mächtig Holy gesungen und natürlich Metal Heart.

UD: (lachend) Ja ich bin auch schwer zufrieden mit dem Album. Es war wirklich kurios, als wir die Planung hatten für das Russia Album haben wir just in Case, weil man ja in Russland nicht weiß ob alles funktioniert, auf der Europatournee viele Sachen einfach mal mitgeschnitten. Und als wir dann mit der Planung der DVD und des Albums zugange waren, hatten wir eigentlich vor eine DVD plus zumachen. Dann haben wir aber gesagt, lass das sein mit einer DVD plus denn da gibt es große Probleme und so haben wir halt neben der DVD das Live – Album als zweites gemacht, und da passierte was ganz kurioses, wir wussten gar nicht ob die Mitschnitte von der Europa Tour nicht schon gelöscht hatten, also das war dann erst einmal ein langes Suchen, aber wir hatten Gott sei Dank noch diese Bänder. Somit mussten wir diese Sachen nur noch mischen. Die DVD ist nicht als reines Live Konzert zu sehen sondern wir haben neun Songs drauf von der Russland Tour, der Rest ist dann eine History von U.D.O. die 1987 beginnt bis zum Holy Album und der Holy Tour. Wir haben zehn Videos drauf, wir haben vier Songs drauf die es überhaupt noch nicht gibt, wir haben zwei Songs drauf die es schon gibt aber da ist dann der Text gleich aber die Musik ist anders. Das sind zwei Demo Versionen, wo der Fan sehen kann, aha, so war das Demo und so ist jetzt der Song im Endeffekt geworden. Dann ist da das Video drauf das ich in Russisch gemacht habe mit Aria. Man hört mich dann auch in russisch und da sind dann alle Alben drauf, warum, weshalb und weswegen. Wann die aufgenommen wurden, mit welchen Produzenten in welcher Besetzung, alle Texte von sämtlichen U.D.O. Alben. Diese kannst du dann auch einzeln anklicken. Wir haben eine Dokumentation von Russland darin, eine Doku von den zwei USA Touren. Mein geheimes Hobby Fallschirmspringen kann man auch sehen.

GR: Aber kein Möllemann Effekt.

UD: Nein, ich springe ja nicht alleine, und der Mann hat die Leine auch gezogen (Lachen). Das mach ich sehr gerne, und das durfte ich früher nicht machen denn das gab ein Verbot vom Management. Heute entscheide ich das alleine ob ich das mache oder nicht.. Also, die DVD ist sehr voll und man braucht lange, bis man da durch ist.

GR: Also, ich bin schon sehr gespannt auf das Ding. Vor allem war ich überrascht das du auf einmal beim AFM Label aufgetaucht bist. Wie kam es denn zu der Entscheidung, weil du doch eigentlich alles in Eigenregie gemacht hattest, mit deinem Breaker Label.

UD: Das ist richtig, du darfst aber nicht vergessen, ich bin ein Einmann- Unternehmen und U.D.O. nimmt im Moment sehr viel Zeit in Anspruch. Wenn ich dann alles selber mache, erst einmal ist das ein großes Risiko, eine DVD kostet richtig viel Geld und da muss man sagen da ich so gesehen ein kleines Unternehmen bin ist das Risiko einfach zu groß. AFM hatte Interesse dran und ich glaube da ist das ganze Zeug in guten Händen. So kann ich mich ganz um U.D.O. kümmern denn das was AFM jetzt macht hätte ich somit ganz alleine machen müssen. Dazu habe ich einfach die Zeit nicht und bei Breaker-Records wird es auch so sein das ich im Moment keine neuen Bands unter Vertrag nehme. Denn wenn ich so etwas mache dann will ich auch für die Bands arbeiten aber diese Zeit habe ich nicht und werde ich die nächsten zwei oder drei Jahre überhaupt nicht haben. U.D.O ist so intensiv und da wollten wir ja auch hin, somit muss und will ich mich darauf jetzt auch erst einmal konzentrieren.

GR: Die letzten Jahre nach Accept habe ich das so beobachtet, diesen Werdegang von U.D.O. Es wurde ja immer extremer und man sagte am Anfang, na ja das ist jetzt mal so ein Projekt vom Udo, mal sehen was er ohne Accept machen kann, aber jetzt hat das mittlerweile so einen Stellenwert in der Metal-Szene das du Accept schon fast den Rang abgelaufen hast.

UD: Ja, das ist schon noch etwas anderes, Accept, gegen den Namen anzustinken, das geht nicht denn Accept hat schon so eine Legendenbildung. Na ja, das war schon schwer nach der Reunion von Accept als ich das zweite mal mit U.D.O. angefangen habe, wie du schon gesagt hast, die Leute meinten, ach der macht jetzt mal Solo und dann kommt Accept eh wieder. Das war schon hart und ich glaube manch einer hätte dann gesagt, wieso tust du dir das an. Ich habe dann aber gesagt, ne, das will ich jetzt aber wissen. Bis auf zwei Wechsel, wo ich beim ersten Mal mit U.D.O. nicht so glücklich war habe ich jetzt eine konstante Besetzung. Ich hab für mich, ich will nicht behaupten das er der wichtigste Mann bei Accept war, aber für mich persönlich doch, den Stefan Kaufmann, der immer die Heavy Fraktion bei Accept vertreten hat, der den Gesang produziert hat, mit dem ich hervorragend komponieren kann. Also kommt eigentlich auch die etwas härtere Accept – Schiene zum Vorschein. Somit hättest du das letzte Album auch Accept nennen können wenn du wolltest, das wäre kein großer Unterschied. Aber zu Accept fehlt einfach eins und das ist Wolf Hoffmann. Er ist einfach für mich einer der unterbewertetesten Gitarristen überhaupt. Er hat nie den Stellenwert bekommen den er meiner Meinung nach eigentlich verdient hätte. Er hat einen eigenen Stil, er hat mit seiner Art Gitarre zu spielen Accept eigentlich geprägt. Das kann ich nicht kopieren bei U.D.O., das geht nicht, das wäre auch dummes Zeug.

Der ganze Grundsound den wir bei U.D.O. haben, die Chöre, die Art der Komposition, das ist eigentlich wie gehabt, man bräuchte Wolf Hofmann nur noch drei Solos spielen lassen und jeder würde sagen, was ist das denn. Das wollen die Leute von mir hören und es wäre Schwachsinn beim nächsten Studio – Album zu sagen wir probieren jetzt was ganz anderes. Weshalb soll ich auch etwas verändern was funktioniert. Nach sieben Jahren wieder mit U.D.O. sind wir auf einem Level angekommen, wo ich sagen muss da kann noch ganz viel passieren. Ich meine ich merke doch was hier los ist. Hätten wir letztes Jahr nicht gesagt Stop, dann wären wir jetzt immer noch auf Tour. U.D.O. braucht jetzt erst einmal eine Pause, wir haben seit 1987 durchgehend getourt. Balingen ist der einzige Auftritt den wir dieses Jahr machen. Wir planen im Moment aber schon voraus bis 2006. Das muss jetzt alles ablaufen wie ein Uhrwerk.

GR: Somit können wir noch viel von U.D.O. erwarten.

UD: Das kann man wohl sagen.

GR: Ich bin ein absoluter Fan von dem Man And Machine Album. Wenn ich zu Hause das Brett brauche gebe ich es mir eigentlich immer mit dem Album.

UD: (Erst einmal herzhaftes Lachen) Das ist auch eines meiner Lieblingsalben und ich habe viele Alben gemacht.

GR: Jetzt hatte ich dich ja in Ulm in dem Clubgig gesehen vor 400 Besuchern und da hast du eine Energie raus gelassen die sich vom ersten Titel auf das Publikum übertragen hat. Wie ist jetzt eigentlich der Spaß an so einem Festival wie Balingen?

UD: Wenn ich ehrlich bin spiele ich eigentlich nicht so gerne auf Festivals denn man hat viel Chaos und alles läuft unter großem Stress ab. Mit Umbau auf der Bühne, und, und und....... Wo ich sagen muss, nicht weil ich hier spiele, ich hab ja schon mal hier gespielt. Es gibt ein paar Festivals, dazu gehört auch hier Balingen da ist alles recht gut organisiert und du hast hier nicht das Stressgefühl. Es macht hier richtig Spaß. Es gibt noch ein paar andere Festivals, in Spanien oder das Schweden Rock, die sind gut organisiert. In Wacken hatte ich letztes Jahr das Gefühl das war Chaos. Da kriege ich einfach die Krise. Oder wenn du dich nicht mal zurückziehen kannst, da vergeht mir die Lust.

GR: Danke für das Interview und schon jetzt freue ich mich auf deinen morgigen Auftritt.

UD: Ich bedanke mich auch und ich wünsche dir noch viel Spaß hier den ich hoffentlich auch haben werde.

Nach dem Interview redeten und lachten wir noch über das eine und das andere. Selten habe ich ein Interview in einer so entspannten und relaxter Atmosphäre geführt. Dann war die Zeit die ich im Bachstagebereich sein durfte abgelaufen und ich begab mich in den Pressebereich zurück mit dem Gefühl das ich mich mit Udo Dirkschneider nicht das letzte mal unterhalten habe.

Michael Tölle

Udo Dirkschneider(Audio Interview)
http://www.musicmirror.net/udo.asx
Udo Dec. 2007 (in german only)
about 20 years U.D.O. & the Future of Heavy Metal
(на немецком)
=======================================================

Изображение
Oh, little Udo is celebrating his 20th.... not of course his birthday, otherwise he'd be a medical miracle. But his existence with U.D.O. is now 2 decades alive. Holy shit.... is it really that long. It doesn't seem so. And Udo himself always admits, that his musical highpoint has yet to come. So what?! I ask myself, - have had all those metal highlights including the Accept masterpieces, - are there really any requests open? Hmmm, - probably,otherwise he, in the middle of his fifties, won't be standing here, trying to beat the hell outta us and convince us, that the so-called True- Heavy Metal is the only form of art. And we, who are aprox. 500 souls tonight, do him the favour, have come here for the 25th chapter of the metal coran (or is it the 26th.?) for christ sake. To be honest, I've stopped counting. But I was looking forward again for this evening in the usual expectation to receive a lot of Rock'n'Roll and also some Accept classic tunes. Because it's them, accompaniing Udo for the rest of his artist life - no matter how many more U.D.O. albums he will create. Though also U.D.O. has produced some diamonds within those 20 years which can't be ignored.

Anyway, the first prayer, who comes from Denmark, is starting off very early and listens to the clichee name Iron Fire.

To be honest, - and every metalfan will kill me probably for that... I haven't heard a lot of this band yet. But as I always use to say, 1) you can't know everything, and 2) I'm always open for new stuff, no matter what. The five piece is going for five years so far and started off as a Coverband. Fronted by Martin Steene, who at one point wasn't satisfied anymore and soon tried to create his own stuff. The band tried several ways of heavy Metal, Bandmembers kept going and coming. And the result we got here right at this moment proves, that you can practice this kind of music also with a good decent haircut and no further visual image care.
My general first impression ain't that bad, thought the guys are not, what I'd call innovative.. They don't do anything new, nothing what has not been here for the last 25 years. But they do it with a lotta luv for details and with much selfconfidence. And that's what spreads across to the audiance. The latest release is entitled 'Blade Of Triumph', the fifth CD so far for Iron Fire. And somehow this figure seems to be magic for this five guys, who are standing here on this stage after five years. Let's wait and see, whether there is a future and we see 'em again - at least during the next five years.
http://www.ironfire.dk/

’A New Religion’ is the second prayer tonight, and this is Primal Fear.

I have already realized, that quite a few of the fans here have mainly come for them. One reason is their new testament, which is named 'A New Religion', and this one does very well. And the band goes down very great as well. Jes...... those boys mean it good with us and give us 90 minutes of Novelle cuisine - ala'carte Heavy Metal.

The big bonus of this combo is certainly singer Ralph Schepers, whos voice is able to climb up towards 2 octaves easily. The effort jumps outta his simple haircut. And there is one more thing I wanna mention... I have seen this band so far several times, but I've never seen this guy with a different pair of trousers then this one here - I swear. Slowly I ask myself, whether he's got an alternative or not. Yeah yeah, okay, that's not what counts, but it pulls my focus as well as much as it does on guitarist Mr. Sinner, who's lack pants must develop such a heat underneath, like the eruption of the Kilauea on Big island on Hawaii. (I've been there) But whoever wants to be a stilistic metal prince, has to suffer and show himself the best way he can in leather, lack and long hair. Only the hard one's survive, as we say so. And that's what we are following the chlichee - with a few pounds more or less on the rips. We call it once again - Image care. And that one has many sides.

Apart from that, Primal Fear are offering us a solid performance and an exact instrumental play-together, which let's us hail halleluja. And that's what it should be, shouldn't it?!

================================================================

... and there he comes – the Mastercutor, the styleicon, the topmodel and Caruso of Heavy Metal, our beloved little-one, or just uncle Udo, who's voice is still the same for the past 35 years or even longer and grows above himself every time on stage again and again and again.

And again, it's a thunderstorm of the best kind of rock music - a mission no. 15. Because it's 15 albums now, U.D.O. has released yet in the past 20 years and carried across the stages all over the world. You can call Udo as a long term institution for sure. Without him, the german Heavy Metal would maybe look a bit different. Although I gotta bring it to the point, that he will never ever again reach the milestones again, he had with Accept in the glory eighties. Songs like ‚Princess Of The Dawn’, ‚Balls To The Walls’ and the national anthem ‘Fast As A Shark’ will accompany Udo with all the blessing of the holy christopherus. No matter he agrees with it or not. But I think, he doesn't mind. Because with exactly those, just mentioned metal pearls the marketing of U.D.O. music functions pretty well. And this music has got some highlights as well, just think about the great song 'Man And Machine' or the impressing 'Master Of Desaster'.

With the current release 'Matercuter', Mr. Dirkschneider underlines all of his music again. This and also the show is - Best of... restrospective... nicely spiced with the Accept classic tunes, which gives the show the dot on the i - as we say so. No, not quite, as the fans have a very last request open, because this here is the very last show in Germany on this tour. And Udos questions about this final bunch of flowers ain't really neccessary, is it?! heidi heida heid.....
And yes, even after 2 decades, Udo can manage the classic scream perfectly, - like Tarzan in the Congo delta. Truly - this song is the egg of columbus, whether with or without military outfit and the Bluesbrothers sunglasses in the limelight. However, - this here has been probably the best U.D.O. show I've seen so far.

And however you turn it round, - last but not least Udo's popularity stands and falls with this song, which won't get outta fashion even in a 100 years. Well,... maybe as long as this music is around. Believe tranfers mountains. And Udo believes in the future of Heavy Metal, and we believe in Udo. - So what? A pessimistic optimist is a person, who sees the worst things from their best sides. Got me? There is nothing more to say, only maybe a dosvidanja and 'till next time - amen.
PS: and yes - M E L E K A L I K I M A K A e H O U L I M A K A H I K I H O U - which is hawaiian and means - merry xmas. So that makes a bit of a difference than always in russian.....

Oh and before I forget, next time I'll bring another nice bottle of spanish red vine along for you Udo and a real russion vodka for your mate..... Holy Metal promise....
