  1. Emily delivers another great interview !

    It’s great you opened with “London Leather Boys” because at one time we thought Udo was gay just like Rob Halford. Then I found out that Wolf Hoffmann’s girlfriend and now wife wrote the lyrics. Very cutting edge.

    Udo and Accept have always made me proud of my German heritage.

  2. Great interview! UDO has always been one of my favorite singers! His voice still sounds good live!!Pretty cool his son is the band!

    Thnx ZMAN

      1. been good, very good, just busy. I am still with you guys!!! Still listen to every episode! One day I will call and leave a quick message on the talking metal hotline!!! Hahaha.
