Doro Pesch has always been very reserved and careful in protecting her privacy off-stage. She consciously renounced a family and children in order to dedicate all of her time to her musical career and her fans. The lyrics of the song "You Are My Family", which opens the album , exemplify this decision. After the death of her father in 2000, her mother Barbara manages the Doro fan club.
In the 1980s the presence of women in rock, and in particular in heavy metal bands, was usually considered by press and fans more for glamour and sexual exploitation than for the musicianship showed. Doro Pesch was one of the few exceptions; her qualities as vocalist and songwriter in Warlock, her commitment in promoting their music and her avoidance of posturing as a sex symbol won the respect of a solid fan base in the expanding European metal scene of that period, ensuring a long string of favorable articles and covers on the principal European metal magazines. In an interview in 2006 Doro remembered how "we lived in paradise and had not noticed it, (...) we thought at the time, that now it goes on and on and the success would continue automatically, (...) then came the great awakening".
Doro Pesch (real name: Dorothea Pesch, born 3 June 1964, Düsseldorf) is a female vocalist, formerly of the German heavy metal band and one of the few female singers of the 1980s heavy metal scene.
