(Classic Rock) Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann feels honoured that counterparts in bigger bands look on him as a hero but he wouldn't mint trading the adulation in for a fatter bank balance. And he hopes the band's two acclaimed albums since they reformed have forever silenced those who doubted the German outfit could pull off a comeback.
Accept returned in 2009 with new singer Mark Tornillo after former frontman Udo Dirkschneider opted not to take the mic again. They released Blood of the Nations the following year and Stalingrad came out earlier this month.
Hoffmann tells BraveWords: "I don't think you could have more scepticism than we had. We got hit pretty hard by the wave of naysayers and criticism. I had to tune out at one point because I couldn't stand the comments any more." more on this story
