Dieter Bohlen’s Biography

The Beginnings

Dieter Bohlen from childhood had many difficulties: among them the fact that his father, hydraulic engineer, had everything ready to leave the business to his son who always showed a rebellious character since childhood, so he was governed by a very tough discipline from his family and school that increased his character more.

When he was a teenager he learned to play the guitar on his own, his first composition was a song called “Many bombs fall”. Upon arriving at the University he continued with his musician’s hobby due to the greater freedom he had from his parents. He joined several local groups such as Capo, the Aorta group and Mayfair, which at the time was the most popular in Gottigen. It is in this last group that he begins to emphasize his aptitude also for composition; once he leaves the group, he decides to write and send his works to different record companies to try his luck, and although unfortunately the answers were never negative under his head and he continued composing. It is at that time that he would meet his first wife Erika.

In 1977, together with a fellow from Gottigen named Holger, he would form the duo Monza, editing 2 singles “Heisse Nacht in der City” and “Hallo Taxi nr.10”, with little commercial resonance; canceling the project.

In 1979was already working for Intersong BMG composing and writing for the record company. In 1980 it would interpret its first song under the pseudonym of Steve Benson, the single was “Do not Throw My Love Away”. Despite not having commercial success the figure of Bohlen was already beginning to become known in the world of music. Many artists already wanted to work with him. He would get two gold discs producing Ricky King and Roland Kaiser. He released a single with the group Sunday called “Hale Hey Louise”, which would become Bohlen’s first performance success, and even presented the theme by the German TV network ZDF.

1980/1990 The Success Modern Talking

Entering 1983 would come the success for Bohlen, because the song “Mit 17” that he produced for Bernd Clüver for the Eurovision Song Contest reached the top # 3 in Germany. In 1984 Dieter is known as Ryan Simmons, with songs like “Lucky Guy” or “The Night is yours the night is mine”; songs that would later be recorded again for the first album of Modern Talking with the voice of Thomas Anders.

At the end of 1984 he forms his own project: he started looking for people to form a group. He would meet, then, with singers like Thomas Anders. Then he called the producer and singer Marc de Ville (Rolf Köhler) who along with the rest of the teams like Detlef Wiedeke, Michael Scholz, Birger Corleis and Luis Rodriguez formed the legendary band Modern Talking. Successes such as “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul,” “Brother Louie,” “Cheri Cheri Lady,” “Atlantis Is Calling (SOS for Love)” and “You Can Win If You Want” came to # 1 in Germany and almost everywhere in the world.

In 1986 he produced for the former Smokie frontman, Chris Norman the song “Midnight Lady” which was number # 1 in Germany. At the end of 1985 it would release its second largest production, C.C. Catch, with whom he edited four albums and twelve singles until 1989 when his working relationship ended badly.

In 1987 after the dissolution of Modern Talking, Bohlen launched its Blue System project; with relative success in Europe. The second album of Blue System “Body Heat” contained a song called “Silent Water” that was part of the soundtrack of the television series Tatort “Moltke” of the ARD channel, where Dieter has a small role in one of the chapters.

In 1989 he composed the songs that represented Germany and Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest. The song in competition for Austria, was produced in conjunction with Dieter Bohlen and was performed by Thomas Forstner. After the end of the competition Dieter’s song had been ranked 15, but then, to his surprise, the song ranked No. 5, thus achieving another success in his career. In 1992 he co-authored the Austrian song “Zusammen geh’n”, played by Tony Wegas and finished in 10th place.

Currently he is jury of the German program “Deutschland sucht den Superstar 2013”. He has continued to work for the DSDS program until at least 2017.

Another facet of little-known Dieter Bohlen is his collaboration with Georgie Dann, for whom he created one of his popular summer hits: “Ulé tamouré”.
