|German rock band, formed in 1990 originally calling themselves Bon Bon. This name was to last only a year before the band renamed themselves 12 Apostel in 1991. The line up of the band consisted of Chris Gott on Bass and Vocals, Eric Zion on Guitars and Vocals, Werner Schultheiss on Guitars, Martin Machwitz on Keyboards and Vocals and Corni Bartels on Drums and Vocals.
Werner Schultheiss left the band in 1995 to concentrate on his own band Sok Munka, and 12 Apostel went on to record their debut album as a 4 piece, having it produced by Uwe Hoffmann. Despite strong single releases, the band never really achieved major success, and in 1998 12 Apostel split.
