He is in deep mourning! Udo Lindenberg (76) is one of the most famous German singers. Guitarist Carola Kretschmer has always been at his side during his numerous performances over the past decades – for many fans of the musician she was just as much a part of him as his iconic look. The “Komet” interpreter now shared on social media: Carola passed away last night!
Via Instagram the 76-year-old makes his grief public: “Our pioneer on the guitar and in life, Carola Kretschmer, has already gone ahead and checked out the other side of the river. We’ve known each other for 50 years… She was the tough consequence without compromises!” She was born a male and was called Thomas before her gender change Udo out of. The musician described: “She had initial difficulties, but developed incredible sovereignty! Carola was an absolute highlight – on stage and also as a friend.”
