Says guitarist Frank Bornemann - the only permanent member of the group since its inception: "The name Eloy borrowed from the book" The Time Machine "by HG Wells. The novel is set in 800 thousand years and Eloy - the name of the human race. Eloy begin a new life with the help of a time traveler . German rock band in the late 60's playing (mostly) other people's songs instead of having to create their own and were, one might say, a second-class groups in their own country. came out with his own compositions was no small achievement at the time. This was the start of an uncertain future - as humanity in the novel Wells.'s why I had the idea to name the band Eloy. I started playing in the early 60's under the influence of The Shadows, American performers of rock 'n' roll, and later The Beatles. I Eloy found other musicians by chance, but from the beginning felt that it would be a long-term project.
1969. Eloy Group formed. Initially it - school group whose repertoire included songs of The Beatles, The Moody Blues, The Who and Cream.
1970. Eloy two records his own compositions for the single (Daybreak / Walk alone).
1971. Eloy released the first CD of the same name.
From the beginning, we tried to find their own style within the progressive rock. Of course, this took time. In the first part were Erich Schriever - lead vocals, Manfred Vizhorke - guitar and keyboards and I - three authors. I became the leader after Eric left us in 1972. We tried to find a new vocalist, but in the early 70s it was not so easy. The first two concerts with me as a singer have been more successful than the previous ones! In the end we decided that I will sing. New drummer Fritz Randow. Like any other team, at the beginning we had difficulties in agreeing their ideas, but at the time all were willing to play in a progressive style. "
Now opinions of critics: "Long and epic compositions overwhelmed arrangements for the successful implementation of the musicians do not have enough equipment. However, if you look at the debut of the program the same Yes, open the same picture, but that was the end of the 60s - the dawn of art-rock, and there was such a number of competitors. debut Eloy same comes at a time of the heyday of the genre, so their early work for the time being remained out of sight. "
"Eloy to this day remains the only German art-rock band whose popularity and commercial success overstepped the boundaries of the fatherland. One of the first Germans who have achieved success in England, Eloy anticipated" invasion "to Europe German groups such as the Scorpions, Accept and Warlock (despite the fact that Eloy have played a fundamentally different music). Writing in the 70s a series of albums, received "gold" in England («Inside», «Floating», «Ocean» and «Colours»), Eloy strengthened its position in the European market, art rock, and today remains one of the few followers of the case early Pink Floyd ".
Such is the most successful band from Germany. Vocals - in English.
