1. Omega is one of the most successful Hungarian rock bands. Formed in Budapest, Hungary in September, 1962 by the winds player László Benkő on vocal, piano and flute and János Kóbor as a lead singer and rhythm guitarist, they initially performed covers of British and American rock songs, with frequently changing the lineup of members. In 1967 Tamás Mihály came on bass, Gábor Presser joined on keyboards and began writing original music for the band (in 1968 György Molnár became a lead guitarist), releasing three LPs before leaving the band with József Laux, a drummer from 1962, to form Locomotív GT. These first albums were heavily influenced by the music of The Beatles, but they also looked forward to the band’s future more progressive, space-rock style. After Presser and Laux’s departure, the band found a new drummer (Ferenc Debreceni came from group Neoton Familia) and pointed Benkő as the main keyboardist, creating the current lineup, which has remained the same for over 30 years:

* János Kóbor (“Mecky”), lead vocals
* György Molnár (“Elefánt”), guitars
* László Benkő (“Laci”), keyboards, vocals
* Tamás Mihály (“Misi”), bass, vocals
* Ferenc Debreceni (“Ciki”), drums

    Kulakovvv, this isn't Scorpions cover! Vice-Versa! Scorpions have the nice cover for Omega which called "White Dove". And the song, written by Scorpions is much more younger then Omega's "Gyöngyhajú lány" ))) And by the way Scorpions and Omega are the very good frends!
