When Udo left Accept, it was was hard to imagine the German metal pioneers without him. After a false start (including a photo session) with a singer named Rob Armitage, Accept finally settled on American David Reece.
Here Wolf and David tell MuchMusic why Reece was the guy after more than 200 applicants for the job. The album was called Eat the Heat, with lead single “Generation Clash”. It’s an interesting interview considering the hindsight that the lineup ultimately did not work and Accept broke up, before reuniting with Udo in 1993.
