Musicians
    (1980- )
    Formed in The Netherlands
    AKA Starsound
    Recorded 'Stars on 45 Medley' aka 'Beatles Medley' (1981), 'Stars on 45 II' and 'Stars on 45 III'
    Director: Jaap Eggermont
    Founder: Eddie Garr (bass and vocals)
    Stu Freeman (keyboards and vocals)
    They are basically a tribute band.
    They were unable to recapture the market they had after their first smash. Although their Stevie Wonder medley peaked to #28.
    Being no-name studio musicians they became a private party (wedding and bar mitzvah) band in 1986.
    Weird Al Yankovic's parodied them with his 'Polkas on 45.'
    Jaap Eggermont also had hits with Golden Earring.
    They were a huge success in the US, with 'Stars on 45 Medley' going to #1 (June 21, 1981) and #2 in the UK.
    They had the uncanny ability to take rock favorites and turn them into sound alike disco versions. The songs were stitched together with a catchy 'Stars on 45' hook.
    They hold the record for longest 'legal' title of a #1 song on Billboard. The legal title had to include the name of all the songs in the medley.
    Unlike rap musicians, the songs used were recreated by studio musicians and not just cuts of the originals.
    They released Medleys of ABBA, Beatles, Motown, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Supremes.
