The two residents, rock’n’roll star Ted Herold (79, bourgeois Harald Schubring) and his wife Manuela (48) were only able to rescue the emergency services dead from the flames. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the Dortmund public prosecutor on Sunday.
The rock’n’roller’s career began as a schoolboy in the 1950s – always based on his role models Bill Haley, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley. Hits like “Only the very first love is so beautiful”, “Hula Rock” or his greatest success “Moonlight” secured him top positions in the charts.
After a few years there was a career turnaround. “In 1961 rock’n’roll was practically dead. People wanted something new,” had said Herold 2012 commemorated his 70th birthday. Twist was the name of the game, then came the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. At the end of the 60s it became much quieter for German rock’n’rollers.
