Description
Demis Roussos (bourgeois Artemios Ventouris Roussos, Greek Αρτέμιος Βεντούρης ύούσσος; * June 15, 1946 in Alexandria, Egypt; † January 25, 2015 in Athens, Greece) was an internationally known Greek singer who, in the 1970s, also with German-language songs had great successes.

In 1968, he founded the group Aphrodite's Child with Vangelis, who was successful with her "Greek sound" first in France, then in Germany. The highlights of the joint work with Vangelis, which have been noted up to this day, are the concept album 666, which is based on biblical revelation. At the beginning of the 1970s Roussos played first solo recordings. While the first solo album Fire and Ice was rather uncommon - and as a result remained largely unknown until now - he recorded a number one hit in Germany and his international breakthrough with the hit song Goodbye, My Love, and Goodbye recorded in several languages As a solo performer. The song is now considered an evergreen of the German hit and was later recorded by other artists.

Demis Roussos died in Athens on 25 January 2015 at the age of 68. He was buried at the First Athenian cemetery in Athens, Greece. In June 2016 opened the International Demis Roussos Museum in Nijkerk, Netherlands.
