When asked if he will be releasing a UDO biography
I working on it but that takes some time, there will be a book coming but at the moment I have 60 pages so far, it takes a while, I'm too busy
When asked if there will be a DVD/Blu Ray for Live Back to the roots
There is a live CD at the moment and a video is coming up at the end of this year
When asked what he does to maintain his voice
I do nothing, I think I am really lucky I know a lot of good friends in the business they have a lot of problems with their voice, getting older. I never do warm ups
When asked if there will ever be a U.D.O. unplugged album
It's a good question can be interesting but you never know I come with surprises
When asked if we would ever consider playing Accept songs in the future
No, it's done. let's say it this way there is a little door open if Accept split up or stop then it may be possible to do. If Accept is still in the business of touring I don't play any Accept songs anymore.
When asked when the new U.D.O. album will be released
We start in the beginning of May 2017 recording the album then we will see when it will be coming out
