Initially becoming world-famous as a founding member of Accept, he continues to steadily expand upon his international successes with his U.D.O. and DIRKSCHNEIDER outfits. Remaining faithful to himself over the years in a way few musicians could, Dirkschneider consistently bucks music industry trends in favour of following his heart. His most personal and extraordinary album was released on April 22nd, 2022:My Way, which was an excellent opportunity to chat with the man himself! We discussed the album, his thoughts on Accept and that time he almost met current Accept singer, Mark Tornillo.
