Profile
RPWL is a German band formed in 1997 in Freising as a Pink Floyd cover band. The band’s name is a combination of the first letters of the original four members’ last names: Phil Paul Rissettio (drums), Chris Postl (bass), Karlheinz Wallner (guitar), and Yogi Lang (keyboards, vocals). They eventually began writing their own material, and their debut album came out in 2000. Personnel has changed over the years, with Wallner and Lang remaining from the original formation.
