The latest episode of the "Dropping The Needle" podcast features an interview with guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of reformed heavy metal legends ACCEPT. Check it out below.
"Dropping The Needle" is hosted by Michael Brandvold from Michael Brandvold Marketing and rock journalist Mitch Lafon. It is described as "the podcast where all music from all genres is discussed. New releases, classic albums, rediscovered music, signed and unsigned. No ass-kissing, just two guys talking about music."
ACCEPT has announced the making of its first official documentary. The film will feature footage from ACCEPT's humble beginnings as a garage band in their German home town of Solingen in the late '70s, their '80s "Balls To The Wall" "glory days," and all the way up their most successful reincarnation with powerhouse vocalist Mark Tornillo.
ACCEPT invites everybody who has ever crossed paths with the band to head over to their official Facebook page to submit pictures, letters, recordings, videos, films, memorabilia, stories, simply anything and everything ACCEPT. The band invites producers, music industry professionals, promoters, writers, photographers, families, friends, and other musicians whether you've stayed connected with or only passed through the doors to participate — including a special invitation to (our former frontman) Udo and all the musicians who have been performing ACCEPT songs for more than 30 years.
If you were deeply touched by whatever ACCEPT was and is, you are invited to contribute to the archives which will be used for the long-awaited and forthcoming ACCEPT documentary.
Helming the project will be former ACCEPT drummer Stefan Kaufmann. Under his command (as an expert of ACCEPT's history) and along side the band, he will whip the project into shape in order to capture the legacy for all. Baltes adds: "This is not the story of one musician or their 'personal success'; it is ultimately about a band from Germany who defined and inspired more than one music genre."
ACCEPT is looking for: live photos, stories of meeting the band, fan gatherings, tattoos, ticket stubs, ads (print/audio/video), artwork, collectibles, various merchandise, t-shirts, denim jackets, magazine covers, magazine articles and so much more.
