Jürgen Drews defies nervous illness: “My legs still carry me” – people

Even with a moderate swing of the hips, he remains the “King of Mallorca”!

Cult singer Jürgen Drews (77) is taking part in a major “Schlagerfest.XXL” tour with Florian Silbereisen (40). Although he suffers from peripheral polyneuropathy, an incurable nerve disease that severely limits the range of motion in his legs.

Drews to BILD: “I’m in control because I can still walk very well. My legs still carry me. Sometimes I move a little, but I don’t feel any pain.

It should be noted that Drews slowed down in his performance. But his joy of being on stage is intact.

“Shortly before the start of the tour, I had Corona and my participation was on the brink”, says the singer. “That’s why I cried at home like a castle dog. I was so looking forward to the tour and couldn’t bear to have to cancel performances. Luckily I got myself recovered in time for the premiere.

Is he considering resigning? “The moment I realize that everything is annoying me, I stop. But it’s not yet.”

What does Florian Silbereisen say about his tour partner Jürgen Drews?

BILD moderator: “Jürgen is quite simply a phenomenon! The man is 77 and when he steps out in his gold suit it’s going to be awesome. It’s always a pleasure to be on stage with him.”
