Udo Lindenberg’s 75th Birthday (*May 17, 1946)
Udo Lindenberg’s unmistakable trademarks are his hat, sunglasses and cigar, but above all his voice and his brash style of singing.
Born in Gronau, he began his career as a musician in the 1960s as a drummer for various jazz formations. Soon he also started performing as a singer and recorded two solo albums. In 1973 he founded the legendary Panikorchester. The breakthrough happens almost right away, with the release of its first album "Alles klar auf der Andrea Doria“ (All clear on the Andrea Doria). In the following years, Lindenberg is not only able to establish rock music in German with his typical and unique lyrics, but also manages to create his own place between Schlager and Krautrock, which were the two popular musical styles at the time. In 1979, the celebrated theater director Peter Zadek stages "Dröhnland Symphonie," released the year before, as a spectacular "rock revue."
In the 1980s, hits like "Wozu sind Kriege da?“ (What are wars for?), "Ich lieb dich überhaupt nicht mehr“ (I don’t love you at all anymore) and "Bunte Republik Deutschland“ (Colorful Republic of Germany) followed. The panic rocker also became increasingly politically active, campaigning for environmental protection, the peace movement and German-German rapprochement. After years of trying in vain to get permission to perform in the GDR, he addressed Erich Honecker directly with the song "Sonderzug nach Pankow".
In the same year he was allowed to play in the "Palace of the Republic" in front of a selected audience. However, a tour of East Germany planned for 1984 was canceled. A few months after the fall of the Wall, he is finally able to give a series of concerts in the former GDR.
In the following decade, Lindenberg goes through a deep crisis and focuses more on creating visual art. In 2008, he makes an astonishing comeback with "Stark wie Zwei“ (Strong Like Two). Three years later, the "Panic Man" receives an invitation to "MTV Unplugged" and performs his musical "Hinterm Horizont“ (Behind the Horizon). Over the years Lindenberg has released 35 studio albums as well as nearly 80 singles, he has collaborated with musicians* as diverse as Eric Burdon and Nina Hagen, Jan Delay and Inga Humpe.
On the occasion of his 75th birthday, "Udopium - Das Beste" is released, a collection of songs from 50 years.
