Aphrodite's Child

A Greek band of the late '60s and early '70s, Aphrodite's Child scored only one European hit, "Rain and Tears." Though it was abig one, thegroupbecame little more than a trivia answer after keyboardist Vangelis Papathanassiou dropped his surname andhit number one with the theme toChariotsof Fire in 1981. Aphrodite's Child also included drummer Lucas Sideras and vocalistDemis Roussos, who enjoyed some solo success himself asa popvocalist. The band formed in Greece in the mid-'60s, and thetitle track from the second album was a hit throughout Europe. The 1971 album 666wasgenerally agreed to be the best, but itproved to be the last, though the single "Break" was also a hit in Europe.
