GOD BLESS is a legendary Indonesian rock band that was formed in the capital city of Jakarta on May 5, 1973. At first, God Bless did not have their own song. At the beginning of each performance, they still used to bring songs from foreign bands, such as Kansas, Easy Beast, Genesis, and Deep Purple. Then they tried to write their own songs, so they could get into the recording studio. And finally, in 1975, God Bless released their first album. Also in 1975, God Bless was chosen as the opening band for the concert of the world’s legendary rock group, Deep Purple, in Jakarta.
