Being raised in Greece and a child of the 60s I also grew up listening to many Greek rock bands , mainly Socrates ..sigh… good and fun times .
Followed Vangelis’music through the years , Albedo .39 , Pulsar were early favorites. A true visionary , he never compromised his artistic ideals . Thrilled when he was widely recognized for Chariots of fire.
He hardly toured , almost never I think , I was lucky enough to see him live at UCLA’s Royce hall back in 1986… what a memorable performance .
Poll, Kostas Tournas, and most especially Stauros Logarides are ones I go back to occasionally. There are some good compilations of 60s Greek rock, and it is interesting to me how some bands tried to be the "Greek Fairport Convention" in doing folk-rock!
Stauros has a FB page.
