Doro Pesch Never Felt Different Being A Woman In Metal

. (Classic Rock) Doro Pesch says she never thought of herself as one of the few women in metal - insisting it was difficult enough just to convince people to accept the genre as a whole.

The singer is celebrating 30 years in the business, and will release a live DVD package later this year. And she says she experienced nothing but support from her colleagues and from other artists from day one.

Doro tells Phoenix New Times: "People might've thought it was crazy or different, a woman in heavy metal, but I never felt different. I think you had to fight more for your music - you had to fight more to do heavy metal.

"Because in the beginning with metal, it wasn't accepted as a whole. So you had to really work your ass off, work 10 times more, to make other people feel like metal is something really beautiful." Read more here.
