Jörg Fischer

Jörg Fischer is a German guitar player, primarily known for his work with Accept. He joined the band towards the end of the recording of their self titled debut album and plays on the albums I'm a Rebel and Breaker until leaving before the recording of the fourth album Restless and Wild. After the recording of Balls to the Wall was completed he was asked to rejoin the band. Fischer appears on the albums Metal Heart and Russian Roulette. By this time his role had diminished mainly to rhythm guitarist, although featured on lead guitar on the songs "Living for Tonite", "Wrong is Right', 'Aiming High', "Another Second to be" and 'Lay Down the Law" (performed by Accept on UDO's 'Animal House' album). Fischer left the band again around 1988.

Fischer produced the album Something Wicked Comes with his own band Billionaire Boys' Club in 1993. Billionaire Boys' Club featured Fischer on guitar, Anders Johansson (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen; currently with HammerFall) on drums and Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) on vocals. Marcel Jacob (ex-Talisman; ex-Last Autumn's Dream) shared the bass guitar duties on the album with Magnus Rosén (ex-HammerFall) and Per Stadin (renowned in Sweden for his band Silver Mountain).

Fischer can also be heard with the band Doom Squad on the album A Tribute to Judas Priest: Legends of Metal on the song "Burning Up".

Famous quotes containing the word fischer:

    Man, became man through work, who stepped out of the animal kingdom as transformer of the natural into the artificial, who became therefore the magician, man the creator of social reality, will always stay the great magician, will always be Prometheus bringing fire from heaven to earth, will always be Orpheus enthralling nature with his music. Not until humanity itself dies will art die.
    —Ernst Fischer (1899–1972)
