You’ve never seen Wolfgang Petry like this before.

Comeback with a declaration of love

Do you recognize this hit star?

He used to be a popular hit: Fan or not, everyone at a hit party at a certain alcohol level shouted “Damn, darn, darn”. Now the man with the friendship bracelets has settled down and is paying tribute to his marriage with his new single.


Many people know a man who looks at the camera with sunglasses in a completely different way…

Well, would you recognize him? Wolfgang “Wolle” Petry, 71, has made “Wahnsinn,” essentially the meanest catchy tune of the decade, a mega hit in the late 90s. With his long curly hair, lumberjack shirts and countless friendship bracelets around his right arm, Petry filled stadiums in his prime.

Then it got quieter for the Germans, Petry withdrew, he mainly made music with his son Achim (46). He tried things out: songs in English as well as somewhat rockier numbers added to his discography.
