Pink Cream 69 is a German hard rock and heavy metal band that was formed in 1987. During their early years, the band consisted of four members: Andi Deris on vocals, Alfred Koffler on guitar, Dennis Ward on bass, and Kosta Zafiriou on drums.
The band's debut album, "Pink Cream 69", was released in 1989. The album featured a classic hard rock sound that was heavily influenced by bands like Van Halen and Whitesnake. The album received critical acclaim and helped to establish Pink Cream 69 as one of the most promising new hard rock bands in Europe.
In 1991, the band released their second album, "One Size Fits All". This album marked a significant change in the band's lineup, with David Readman replacing Andi Deris as the lead vocalist. Readman's powerful vocals and melodic sense proved to be a perfect fit for the band, and helped to cement Pink Cream 69's place as one of the leading hard rock bands in Europe.
During this time, Pink Cream 69 continued to tour extensively, building a dedicated fan base throughout Germany and other parts of Europe. Their energetic and passionate live shows helped to solidify their reputation as one of the most exciting and dynamic live acts in the genre.
In the mid-1990s, Pink Cream 69 began to incorporate elements of alternative rock and grunge into their music, resulting in a sound that was both heavy and melodic. This evolution was showcased on their third album, "Games People Play", which was released in 1993. The album was a commercial success, and helped to broaden the band's appeal beyond the hard rock scene.
Over the next several years, Pink Cream 69 continued to release critically acclaimed albums, including "Change" in 1995 and "Electrified" in 1998.
