Vangelis (Greek composer of electronic, new age and classical)

~ Person


Born Evanghelos Odyssey Papathanassiou in Vòlos, Greece.

In 1974, Vangelis was considered as a replacement keyboardist for Rick Wakeman in Yes. According to Atlantic Records’ president Phil Carsons, “Jon and I went to Paris to try and get him to join the group. He was an amazing character. As I recall, he has a Daimler limousine with a female chauffeur. We had a great meeting with him in this bizarre apartment where he was surrounded by young women. He also had an archery target set up in the living room of this huge room. During the conversation he kept loosing off arrows which flew across the crowded room and always hit the centre of the target! Anyway we talked him into giving it a try. He came over to London and tried out with Yes but it didn’t really gel. One of the problems was Vangelis wouldn’t get on a plane and wouldn’t fly anywhere and Yes were about go on tour”.
