Whatever Happened To… Alphaville?

Forever Young – Alphaville (1984)
This German group made a sizable impression during the early 80’s in Europe & Australia, but couldn’t really breakthrough in the US despite the popularity of synth-pop & New Wave at the time. They’ve continued to release albums over the years, albeit at a slower pace, mainly to a German fan base. Front-man Marion Gold released a couple solo albums during the 90’s, and fellow founders Bernhard Lloyd & Frank Mertens individually collaborated with others on side-projects. Alphaville’s most recent studio album, released in 2010, landed in the German Top 10.
