BAP - Double Celebration

With ten No. 1 albums under their belt, BAP have had more records at the top of the German charts than any other rock band - even though they sing in a local dialect. The band from Cologne is also popular abroad.

BAP have toured across Europe, the former Soviet Union and China. Vocalist Wolfgang Niedecken is the only original member who’s still in the band. And he has a lot to celebrate. His band is now 35 years old and he’s turning 60. BAP’s new album has already reached number three in the German charts, and Niedecken has looked back on his life with an autobiography. We do the same in this week’s show.
