Doro Pesch, known as the “Metal Queen” and singer for classic metal band Warlock, takes time to talk with Dr. Music about her upcoming album and tour, her 40th anniversary as an artist, her acting career, her love of animals, and her time in the boxing ring.
Doro has released 17 studio records and collaborated with all of the giants of the metal genre. She has received “Legend” awards from both Metal Hammer UK and Metal Hammer Germany in 2013, the Metal Goddess Legend Award in 2016, and in 2018, after headlining the Wacken Festival and playing to 80,000 fans, she was officially inducted into the U.S. Hall Of Heavy Metal History. This page isn’t long enough to list all of the awards and accolades bestowed upon this far Queen Of Metal, but just know that she is royalty and a true icon in the heavy metal community.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
