Wolfgang Petry feels "really good" in a checked shirt

When you think of Wolfgang Petry, the first thing that comes to mind, in addition to his hits, is his optical trademarks. Is there a calculation behind this?

Cologne – checked shirt, friendship bracelet, shaggy mane: Wolfgang Petry's outfit is legendary, but according to the pop singer, it did not follow a sophisticated plan.

"I've always been at war with disguises for television programs and so one day I decided not to disguise myself anymore," Petry reported to the German press agency. "From then on I always wore my checked shirt and felt really good." He never made anything out of calculation. It was no different with the friendship bracelets that he once wore on his arm and removed for a good cause in 2002.

Petry is one of the most successful pop singers in Germany with hits like “Wahnsinn” and “Falling in love, lost, forgotten, forgiven”. He will be 70 years old on Wednesday (September 22nd). dpa
