Aphrodite's Child was a Greek progressive rock and psychedelic pop band formed in 1967. The band consisted of Demis Roussos (vocals), Vangelis Papathanassiou (keyboards), Lucas Sideras (drums), and Anargyros "Silver" Koulouris (guitar). The band was known for its unique blend of rock, pop, and classical music, as well as its incorporation of Greek traditional elements into its sound.
Aphrodite's Child was formed in Paris, France, and released its first album, "End of the World," in 1968. The band's most famous and critically acclaimed album, "666," was released in 1972. The album features the hit single "Rain and Tears," which was a top-ten hit in many countries.
Aphrodite's Child was one of the most popular and influential bands in Greece during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its music was a major influence on the Greek rock scene and continues to be popular to this day. The band's music is often described as innovative, experimental, and ahead of its time.
After the release of "666," the band disbanded in 1972. Demis Roussos went on to have a successful solo career, while Vangelis became one of the most influential and successful film score composers of all time. Aphrodite's Child's music continues to be popular and has been reissued several times.
