Zeljko Bebek and Podium biography
Zeljko Bebek was the lead singer of the most popular R'n'R group in former Yugoslavia - BIJELO DUGME - from their beginning in 1974 until 1984 when he left the band for the pursuit of a solo career. At the peak of their popularity the band went through a crisis around 1978 when they almost disbanded. The band leader Goran Bregović was in the army service and other band members tried to pursue their own solo projects, unsatisfied with Bregović's "shepherd's rock" aesthetics.

Almost at the same time when DUGME's drummer Ipe Ivandić and keyboard player Laza Ristovski were recording their duet LP "Stizemo", Bebek gathered a group of associates called PODIUM in order to make his debut solo album. PODIUM included his old friend guitarist Eduard "Edo" Bogeljić from the days of CREAM-inspired hard rock band KODEKSI, a precursor to BIJELO DUGME (both Bebek and Bregović were members of this band around 1970). Drummer Dragan "Điđi" Jankelić was playing in various Sarajevo's bands and after PODIUM he was to join BIJELO DUGME.

The album ". skoro da smo isti", credited to "Zeljko Bebek, Podium and members of the Philharmonic" was released 28th July 1978. It was made in a symphonic progressive rock style but was played down by the press as a failure, while the sales were poor (allegedly only 6 000 copies sold at the time when DUGME reached 300 000 sold copies per album!). Live promotion was cancelled because it was assessed that the public interest was low. After this commercial failure Bebek returned to DUGME, but finally parted his way with the band in 1984 and started a more commercially oriented mainstream pop-rock and pop-folk solo career, which have been going on until now with varied successes.

His first solo album with the band PODIUM is important for progressive rock legacy because it was one of the few albums in SFR Yugoslavia made entirely in the "symphonic rock" style.
