Wolf Hoffmann Career

At the end of 1975, Hoffmann heard in a local music store that a band called Accept was looking for a new guitarist. The band practiced in the nearby town of Solingen, only a 15-minute drive from Wuppertal. Hoffmann became Accept's guitarist a few weeks before his 17th birthday. Accept was not like the random groups of friends that Hoffmann had played in before. The band members took practice seriously, and they also played gigs locally.

After bassist Peter Baltes joined the band half a year after Hoffmann, they started composing new songs for the band together. Their collaboration continued for more than 40 years, and they made most of Accept's songs. Since Restless and Wild Hoffmann has played the majority of all the guitar parts on Accept's studio albums, although the entire band is typically listed on the records.

Hoffmann has released 16 studio albums with Accept. The first album Accept was released in 1979. In the 1980s the band released seven albums: I'm a Rebel, Breaker, Restless and Wild, Balls to the Wall, Metal Heart, Russian Roulette, and Eat the Heat. In 1989 the band broke up, and it returned in 1992 with the album Objection Overruled. Hoffmann made two more albums, Death Row, and Predator, with Accept before the band disbanded again in 1997. Accept made a comeback with Hoffmann in 2009. Since then, the band has released the albums Blood of the Nations, Stalingrad, Blind Rage, The Rise of Chaos, and Too Mean to Die.

In July 2022, Hoffmann revealed that he has started writing material for the next Accept album that will possibly be released in 2023.

In 1997, Hoffmann released the album Classical with rock versions of classical music works. Hoffmann's second solo album, Headbangers Symphony, was released in July 2016. On the first album, Hoffmann reduced the music to mainly just guitar, while on the second album, he included an orchestra. However, both albums have the same basic idea: they have well-known classical compositions, of which Hoffmann has made his own rock/metal adaptations.

Hoffmann's long-time dream of performing together with a symphony orchestra on stage came true in 2017 at the Wacken Open Air Festival, when he performed Headbangers Symphony songs for the first time in front of an audience with the Czech Symphony Orchestra. The concert was available as a live stream on the festival's website and was also released as a live album and DVD Accept – Symphonic Terror Live at Wacken 2017. In April 2019, Accept started the Symphonic Terror tour, which also included songs from Wolf Hoffmann's first solo album, Classical.

In July 2022, Hoffmann told that he has worked some tracks and ideas for a third neoclassical solo album but it will not be released in the near future.

He contributed to Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach's solo album Bring 'Em Bach Alive! and to a 2000 Japanese tribute to Randy Rhoads album called Randy Rhoads Tribute with Sebastian Bach on "I Don't Know" and with Joe Lynn Turner on "Diary of a Madman". Hoffmann also contributed to Peace Breaker by Skew Siskin.

Hoffmann started photography in the 1980s when he documented Accept's tours. With his wife's encouragement, Hoffmann delved into professional photography after Accept went on hiatus at the end of the 80s. During a break from Accept, he assisted the Düsseldorf photographer Dieter Eikelpoth for almost a year. Eikelpoth was the same photographer who took Accept's Balls To The Walls album cover in 1983. However, at this point, photography had to step down to making music for five years, when Accept made a comeback in 1992.

After Accept broke up in 1997, Hoffmann began professional photography in his hometown of Nashville, photographing artists and album covers. However, he quickly realized that he did not want to continue in the music world as a photographer and he moved on to photographing advertising agencies, insurance companies, and other large companies such as ExxonMobile and American Express. He has taken photos for the books Les Paul in His Own Words and Me and My Guitars Chet Atkins. For Accept, he has photographed the album covers for Objection Overruled and Blood of the Nations.

Hoffmann continued to photograph for a few years after Accept's comeback in the 2010s until he quit professional photography due to lack of time
