I’ve met many first generation women who rock, they are all beautiful. A few of these women really stand out for me, like Doro Pesch. I first met Doro somewhere in the UK Midlands. We were both on tour, she was playing that night, and I had the night off, so I drove to her gig to be a guest interviewer for Metal Hammer UK. I was stoked to meet the trail blazer for many women who rock!
Metal Hammer was doing a feature on the new generation meeting the older generation, and picked me to represent the new generation.
My first impression of Doro was immediately positive and empowering. She was generous with her time, very down to earth and had nothing but warmth and approachability in her eyes. We chatted a bit about the metal music scene for women and how much things had changed over the years. She was nothing but encouraging and positive. Doro asked me my how my current tour was going and we shared a few quick stories. Metal Hammer took some photographs of us in the venue that was hosting Doro that night.
We finished off with Doro wishing me the best of luck and much success; she very encouraging. She is one of those people that really affect’s you by their presence and demeanor. She is so tiny but has such a massive energy and presence about her! She is pure rock and roll but very kind, her positive attitude is infectious. Very impactful person to me.
