Wilfried Gliem (76) has been struggling with his health for over three months, he is currently unable to walk and is bedridden. “It started with a small gash between the heel and the ankle. My doctor said the leg ulcer needs treatment. That’s when I came to the hospital for the first time,” says singer Wildecker Herzbuben to “Bildu”. The German pop duo has been forming since 1990 together with Wolfgang Schwalm (68).

A long drama ensued. The musician was diagnosed with a chronic wound on his left leg, called Ulcus Cruris. Since June, he spent 13 weeks in the hospital almost non-stop. He had to undergo the operation a total of eight times.
