Aphrodite’s Child bandmate Vangelis paid tribute: “Demis my friend.

“I have just arrived in London and I’ve been told that you decide to take the long voyage, I’m shocked because I can’t believe that this happened so soon. Nature gave you this magic voice of yours which made millions of people around the world very happy.”
