Biography

Profile

DDR rock band from Meißen/Saxony. They started as beat in the mid 1960's, absorbing western influences alongside developing their own style. As Stern Combo Meissen they reinvented themselves as the foremost progressive rock outfit from the German Democtratic Republic in the mid 1970's onto the early 1980's.
Throughout their career the "Stars of Meissen" have been constantly changing, and almost changed completely in between recording some albums. Yet they returned (almost) to their best-known line-up when reforming much later.
