Jörg Fischer is a German guitar player, primarily known for his work with Accept.[1] He joined the band towards the end of the recording of their self-titled debut album and plays on the albums I'm a Rebel and Breaker until leaving before the recording of the fourth album Restless and Wild. After the recording of Balls to the Wall was completed he was asked to rejoin the band. Fischer appears on the albums Metal Heart and Russian Roulette. By this time his role had diminished mainly to rhythm guitarist, although featured on lead guitar on the songs "Living for Tonite", "Wrong Is Right', "Aiming High", "Another Second to Be" and "Lay Down the Law" (performed by Accept on UDO's Animal House album). Fischer left the band again around 1988.

Fischer next turned up in a short-lived Los Angeles, CA-based project named Royal Flush which also featured vocalist Dave Fefolt (Masi, Hawk), guitarist Roy Z (Tribe of Gypsies, Bruce Dickinson), bassist Rex Tennyson (Hellion, Heavy Bones), and drummer Reynold Carlson (Jag Panzer, Joey Tafolla); the band broke up after recording a 5-song demo with producer Dieter Dierks.

Fischer produced the album Something Wicked Comes with his own band Billionaire Boys' Club in 1993.[2] Billionaire Boys' Club featured Fischer on guitar, Anders Johansson (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen; ex-HammerFall) on drums and Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) on vocals. Marcel Jacob (ex-Talisman; ex-Last Autumn's Dream) shared the bass guitar duties on the album with Magnus Rosén (ex-HammerFall) and Per Stadin (renowned in Sweden for his band Silver Mountain).

Fischer can also be heard with the band Doom Squad on the album A Tribute to Judas Priest: Legends of Metal on the song "Burning Up".
