The 59 year-old German vocalist Doro Pesch also known as The Metal Queen, famous for her work with Warlock and solo career, explained in an interview with Dr. Music (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) why she decided to remain single and to not have kids.
She is currently promoting her new studio album “Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud” released in 2023.
“What you see is what you get. Usually I’m always on tour or in the studio. That’s definitely my world. And I never thought of settling down or getting married or having kids. Maybe another lifetime, but it’s not much to it. I have a friend — yeah, he’s kind of a boyfriend — and have many friends. I never felt the urge to get married and [have] kids.”
“I made up my mind when I was 24. I was one day waking up. I was living in New York City, which I love so much, New York. And then I woke up and I thought, ‘Okay, today I will choose my priorities.’ And then I thought, what do I really want? And then it was clear. I wanna do music and I wanna make people happy, empower people. And I wanna do it for the fans as long as I live. And that is my life. I don’t have many hobbies as well. It’s only studio, working on songs, going on tour, rehearsing, doing stuff for the fans. And yeah, that’s about it,” Doro Pesch said.
Nicknamed The Metal Queen, Doro Pesch was born in Düsseldorf, West Germany in 1964. She started her musical career in 1980 and first gained fame as the vocalist of Warlock then forming her own band called Doro. She released 14 stuido albums on her solo career and four with Warlock.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
