PINK CREAM 69 was founded in 1987 by singer Andi Deris, guitarist Alfred Koffler, drummer Kosta Zafiriou and later on completed by bass-player Dennis Ward. After winning a band competition the band signed a multi-album deal with the major record label CBS Record, now Sony. After the hugely successful first album “Pink Cream 69”, the follow-ups “One Size Fits All” and “Games People Play” landed high in the official German and Japanese album charts. Intensive touring with internationally renowned acts like EUROPE helped PINK CREAM 69 to gain a worldwide and loyal fan base.
Due to musical and personal differences, singer Andi Deris left the band in 1994 to join HELLOWEEN and also to pursue a solo career. After auditioning various singers, Deris was replaced by singer David Readman, debuting on the surprising “Change” album. The follow-up “Food For Thought” managed to combine the band’s new direction with their roots even more.
After the release of the album “#Live#”, PINK CREAM 69 went another major step on. The band re-thought their actual musical strengths and re-adjusted their direction even more – “Electrified“ saw the band one hundred percent back on the hard rock track! The album achieved rave reviews. The impressive single “Shame” accompanied by a video was followed by a tour in the special guest spot with Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. A very positive situation indeed that even had been topped by the following album “Sonic Dynamite”, which had reached the official German album charts again.
The band proved their excellence once again with the “Endangered“ album before news emerged that guitarist Alfred Koffler suffered from Focal Dystonia, a serious disease that affected his left hand and his playing. For upcoming live shows the band recruited second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer to relieve Alfred's situation on stage. In 2004 PINK CREAM 69 released the aforementioned “Thunderdome“. The album again entered the German album charts.
2007 marked the full force return of PINK CREAM 69. Strengthened by second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer - now a regular member - the band delivered another masterpiece with „In10sity“ followed by tours and festival appearances well documented on the “Live In Karlsruhe”-album as well as on the “Past & Present”-double DVD!
