UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER Is Not Interested In Playing One Last Show With ACCEPT

Greece's Rockpages web magazine recently conducted an interview with former ACCEPT and current U.D.O. frontman Udo Dirkschneider. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked what he would say if he got a phone call from ACCEPT guitarist Wolf Hoffmann or bassist Peter Baltes asking him to play one last show with the band, Udo said: "If Peter and Wolf called me, but I don't think [they would], but [if they did], I would say, 'Have fun. Bye bye.'"

Udo recently told Spark TV about his current relationship with the members of ACCEPT: "There is no relationship at all. We don't talk to each other. It's, in a way, also sad, but what can you do?"

Dirkschneider also gave his opinion of ACCEPT's musical output with current singer Mark Tornillo. He said: "I don't know really the whole albums; I know a couple of songs. I mean, I think they did very good albums, they had, in a way, quite a good success, and the singer is not bad. I mean, I think he's got a little bit of problems when he has to sing the old stuff, but, I mean, come on, this is normal. To copy me really, it's not so easy, but I think he's doing a good job. And, yeah, we will see what they are doing, you know. I mean, I wish them all the best. And that's it."

Dirkschneider in February embarked on a special tour during which he is performing ACCEPT songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good.

The April 2 DIRKSCHNEIDER concert at Kaminwerk in Memmingen, Germany was professionally filmed and recorded for a DVD and CD release later this year.

U.D.O.'s latest studio album, "Decadent", was released in Europe in January 2015 via AFM.
