Hello fellow Accept fans!!!
I had the pleasure of chatting with former Accept drummer Stefan Kaufmann recently, to talk about the new reissues of the "Russian Roulette" and "Eat The Heat" albums.
Stefan is a regular guest on my show, and we've previously talks about Balls To The Wall and Metal Heart, so I will post the links for those interviews too.
I also spoke to Wolf Hoffmann back in 2012, to do a special on "Stalingrad", and later that year I also had a chat with Herman Frank about his solo album Right In The Guts - Accept are one of my favourite bands, so I try to play as much of their music as possible!
Here's the link and info on this weeks show - the interview with Stefan starts at the 59 minute mark
Stefan will be back soon to talk about "All Areas Worldwide"!
I really hope you enjoy the show!
All the best
INTERVIEWS WITH CHRIS VON ROHR (KROKUS) AND STEFAN KAUFMANN (ex ACCEPT) ON RICH DAVENPORT’S ROCK SHOW
Rich Davenport's Rock Show this week features in-depth interviews with Chris Von Rohr of Krokus, and former Accept drummer Stefan Kaufmann, and is available now for streaming at this link
In the first hour of the show, Chris Von Rohr, bassist, producer, songwriter and founding member of Krokus talks about the new remastered reissues of three of the band’s classic albums, “Metal Rendez-vous”, “Hardware” and “One Vice At A Time”, which have just been released by Rock Candy Records (www.rockcandyrecords.com ). Chris charts the band’s rise to fame, which was driven by these three records, and chooses classic songs from each one.
In part two, former Accept drummer, songwriter and co-producer, Stefan Kaufmann takes an in-depth look at two newly reissued Accept albums (out now on Hear No Evil Recordings) the classic “Russian Roulette”, and its controversial follow-up “Eat The Heat”, and the events surrounding both releases. Stefan also explains the reasons for Udo Dirkschneider’s departure from Accept in 1987, looks at the short-lived stint of UK vocalist Rob Armitage (Baby Tuckoo) and the subsequent recruitment of David Reece, and gives the full story of the band’s ill-fated “Eat The Heat” album and tour, which ended with the band splitting up part way through a run of US dates.
