Former Accept Frontman Regrets Slapping Bandmate
Reece tells The Metal Voice: "There was one moment when Dieter told me, 'You realise that if this record fails, it's your fault and my fault? When he said that it kind of pissed me off. Like, 'Why would you say that?' He said, 'You'll see. If the album hits, we're going to be gods. If it fails, we're losers.'
Reece says sales weren't what the record company expected and before long tensions in the group began to boil over, leading to the altercation between himself and Baltes in Chicago.
He continues: "The only thing I feel short-changed about that whole situation was the way they sh*t on me in the press to cover themselves. Nobody was happy - I wasn't happy at the end and neither were they. I mean, I slapped Peter Baltes in Chicago. It was the wrong decision and I regret it. There's better ways to deal with it."
