Fools Garden is a German musical group formed in 1991 under the name Fool's Garden (with apostrophe), comprising singer Peter Freudenthaler, guitarist Volker Hinkel, bassist Thomas Mangold, keyboardist Roland Röhl and drummer Ralf Wochele. They debuted in 1991 with the eponymous album Fool's Garden, the next (1993) was album Once in a Blue Moon. Two years later Fool's Garden issued their third album Dish of the Day, scoring a massive European and Asian chart hit with "Lemon Tree".
Go And Ask Peggy For The Principal Thing followed in 1997, along with three albums in 2000, 2003 and 2005. In 2003 three members left the band and were replaced by Dirk Blümlein (bassist), Claus Müller (drummer) and Gabriel Holz (2nd guitarist, left the band in 2007), and the name of the band changed to Fools Garden (no apostrophe).
The band has taken the habit of covering rock 'n' roll classics during live performances (The Beatles' Ticket to Ride or The Who's My Generation). Fools Garden's interest in British music is so big that cover versions of The Beatles's songs Cry Baby Cry and Martha My Dear can be found on their studio albums.
The band released a greatest hits compilation on October 2, 2009. The album, titled High Times, contains 15 songs including a previously unreleased track.
