Udo DirkschneiderGerman metal legend Udo Dirkschneider recently visited Cleveland, OH as part of a brief North American tour in advance of the release of his upcoming new album with U.D.O. entitled Steelhammer which hits record stores in late May. The ex-Accept vocalist treated his fans to a just over an hour and a half set of U.D.O. and Accept classics at Peabody’s Concert Club on Thursday, April 18th.

Dirkschneider took some time to sit down and speak with Hardrock Haven about the current North American tour, the new album Steelhammer, the possibility of working with his good friend Doro Pesch again in the future, and what question he dreads the most in any interview.
