DORO PESCH Discusses Being A Woman In Metal - “I Have Always Been Treated With Respect And Very Supported By All The Other Bands That Took Us On The Road… JUDAS PRIEST, MOTÖRHEAD Or DIO”

“I have always been treated with respect and very supported by all the other bands that took us on the road: Judas Priest, Motörhead or Dio,” says Doro leader Doro Pesch in a new interview with Spill Magazine.
“I never felt that being a woman created any problems. It was always a much more difficult fight to fight for my music; to do what you love, keeping the record deal. If I would have been a different singer I would have done exactly the same. Everybody knew that I was addicted to the music so it was never a problem. I was never at a disadvantage, it was just the way that it was. I felt it in my heart. Today it is much nicer that there are so many more women involved as singers and musicians compared to the ‘80s when I started. There was just a handful of great bands like Girlschool and Rock Goddess. Lita Ford and Joan Jett, there were not so many. Today there is a better balance.”
