Biography

There are several groups named Vamp.


1) Classic Hard Rock band from Germany.

Line-Up:

Tom Bellini - vocals
Oliver Scholz - bass
Ricolf Cross - guitar
Dicki Fliszar - drums

Originally released in 1989, VAMP’s The Rich Don’t Rock album should be held in the same regard as other classic hard rock albums of the era. Produced by Tony Platt (AC/DC, Foreigner) and stuffed to the rafters with arena-ready choruses, hooky guitars and Tom Bellini’s ballsy vocals, The Rich Don’t Rock was a creative triumph for the German group. But like the other artists we’ve made part of the Divebomb Records family, VAMP were victims of their record label’s shortsightedness and their album went nowhere commercially.

Being the hard rock fiends we are, Divebomb Records has tracked down the members of VAMP and we’ve partnered with the band to bring The Rich Don’t Rock back with the love and attention it deserves.

The Rich Don’t Rock has been unavailable since the late ’80s and this Divebomb Records’ Deluxe Edition features newly remastered band-supplied audio, 15 unreleased professional studio demos, 2012 interview with the entire band and archival live photos.
