He was the leader of the historical greek group "Termites" (1980-1988). In 1989 he created his first solo album, but he became widely known in 1991, because of the success of the song "Didimoticho blues" - it is the title of my page about this city too! (Marousi, 20/9/1998)
D. Savvopoulos (he was born in Thessaloniki in 1944) is fairly called "the Greek Bob Dylan", as -having companion his guitar and his strange voice- he managed to bring something different at the musical reality of Greece since the early '60s... His new releases are still in the centre of interest ("Sfendona", 3/4/1997).
On the south slope of the Acropolis of Athens sits Odeon of Herodes Atticus Amphitheatre. The theater has been restored and plays host to a variety of performances through-out the year.

One of the best groups in musical history performed another great concert, that time at Lycabettus Theater (4/9/2001). Ian Gillan gave a good account of himself...
