Demis Roussos sold more than 60 million albums worldwide and was also a member of progressive rock group Aphrodite’s Child. He had been in a private hospital in Athens with an undisclosed illness for some time, and died surrounded by his family.
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.”
Truly a World Treasure – I DIg You is a classic record for the dancefloor and a personal fave.
Here’s Let It Happen, another gorgeous song and this video is beautiful.
