DORO never wants to retire: “there's no other life”


In a new interview with Belgian Jasper, German metal singer Doro Pesch, who formed her previous band WARLOCK four decades ago, was asked if she he has ever contemplated retirement. The 59-year-old musician responded: “I’m thinking 24 hours about new songs, about the record, about the tour, about festivals. There’s no other life. I grew up with horses, and I miss having pets in my life… But to me, I made up my mind when I was 24. I was living for 20, 25 years in Manhattan. One day I woke up and I thought, ‘Okay, today I wanna choose my priorities,’ and then it was very clear. I wanna live for the music and then nothing else. And then it was okay.”

She continued: “I’m so happy that I made that decision, because before I thought, ‘Yeah, I wanna have this and I wanna have pets and horses and dogs and maybe I wanna have kids and maybe I wanna have a husband.’ But you can’t. You have to make a decision, in my case, and that’s the reason why I never married. I don’t have any kids, but I have all the fans, and I feel like we are a big family. And I always feel so good in each and every country, in each and every city. And that’s definitely a dream. Like doing music for such a long time. Oh, I didn’t think that we would do it more than five, six, seven years.”

Back in 2009, Doro told Sleaze Roxx that she didn’t “believe in retirement. I think I will be on stage until the very end,” she said. “I think I will die on stage; it’s what I love to do. As long as people come out to the shows I will continue to perform. It doesn’t matter if it is five people or five thousand.”

German metal queen Doro has released a new song called “Children Of The Dawn” last week. The track is taken from Doro‘s upcoming studio album, “Conqueress – Forever Strong And Proud”, due on October 27 via Nuclear Blast. The music video for “Children Of The Dawn” was directed by Mirko Witzki (CALIBANANY GIVEN DAYEMIL BULLS).

Watch “Children Of The Dawn” below.

Doro states: “‘Children Of The Dawn’ is an epic anthem, powerful and stirring! It’s one of my absolute favorite tracks on the new album and that’s why it’s the opener.”

Watch the previously released  ‘Time For Justice’, ‘Bond Unbending’ and  ‘Living After Midnight’ below.
