They started touring in folk parks in the summer of 64. They released their first singles the same year and when Hans Östlund left the band he was replaced by Benny Andersson (Elverkets Spelmanslag and later of ABBA fame). In '65 the band became full time musicians and they scored their first hit single with Cadillac ending up on 9th on Kvällstoppen, staying there for 14 weeks. After playing in national TV they managed to place two more songs on the billboards, having three top list positions simultaneously for a time and leading to their great break through. Hep Stars broke up in 1970 ca. Svenne Hedlund had a successful career with his wife Lotta Hedlund (born Charlotte Walker in 1944) as Svenne & Lotta. Read more on Last.fm.
