The teutonic albino popstar known as Heino (and also known as Old Weird Eyes, Über-Creep and Euro-Elvis) is retiring, saying "I've accomplished everything there is to accomplish in this business." Official word from the German language Der Speigel here. Heino will tour Germany one final time this October, and then he'll hang up his dark glasses for good.
Actually, he wont be hanging up his dark glasses. He needs them. Oscillating eyeballs and all that.
Not a single Heino mp3 in the house, but here's a page of Heino realaudio samples, courtesy of the Heino worship page.
And what I would give for photos of the "Trial of a Thousand Heinos" from a few years back. Heino sued another performer for copyright infringement, charging that performer with stealing his look, or his sound, or something. The day the trial began, hundreds of people showed up at the trial, all dressed like Heino. Thanks Boris!
