Frankfurt am Main, March 18, 2019, HEROIN & HELICOPTERS

On March 1, 2019, the new album "Heroin & Helicopters" by Citizen Cope appeared. The honored musician returns with the new recording after seven years. The title of the album came after a meeting with Santana, who is a fan of Cope. He should have advised him to stay away from the "two H's" (heroin and helicopter). Cope translated that musically as a social metaphor for addiction and its immediate fulfillment. In spring, Citizen Cope goes on tour through the USA.

With MELODIE DER WELT he signed almost 70 publishing contracts between 1969 and 1981. With his dance band "Adam and the Micky's" he was a regular guest at the Hessian Carnival Strongholds.

Ikke Hüftgold made Dieter Adam's song "Quellkartoffeln un Dupp-Dupp" (1979) an après-ski hit of the year 2016. Now, Adam died at the age of only 77 years.
