Udo Lindenberg is one of the most influential German rock singers of the '70s. Developing a unique straight rock style mixed with occasional jazzy or symphonic influences and witty lyrics, he was the first to show that rock music with German lyrics was possible, and could even be successful. Though his musical creativity faded in the late '80s and '90s, his status as Germany's most important rocker remained unbroken. Other German bands and singers honored him during his 25th tour anniversary by performing their own versions of his songs. From 1996 on, Lindenberg started a second career as a painter, with extensive exhibitions. ~ Frank Eisenhuth
