Headstrong marks the 30th Anniversary of German hard rockers Pink Cream 69! And what better way to celebrate than by adding yet another gem to
their already spectacular discography! Produced by bassist (and renowned producer) Dennis Ward, Headstrong sees the same line-up from 2013’s
well received »Ceremonial« album return to deliver fans another hard rocking set of quality songs, their 12th studio album overall. And as a special treat,
the new release includes a bonus live album featuring songs from across the band’s catalogue.
Pink Cream 69 was founded in 1987 by singer Andi Deris, guitarist Alfred Koffler, drummer Kosta Zafiriou, who were later joined by bassist Dennis
Ward. Deris left the band in 1994 and after auditioning various singers was replaced by Englishman David Readman. In 2001, news emerged that guitarist
Alfred Koffler suffered from Focal Dystonia, a serious disease that affected his left hand and his playing. For their upcoming live shows, the band recruited
second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer to help out Alfred on stage and he would eventually become a full-time member. Drummer Chris Schmidt would later step
in after the departure of Zafirou in 2012.
