  1. Geeska ..You are a "SHE"..Oh my god!!! and i thought you were funny when you mentioned Dalaras was nice looking and shaped well...Now its all falling into place.Actually, i knew you were a girl(lady),i was just kidding!!! I guess you can still be in the club even though your a "SHE" he,he,he
  2. Chris,who are you dubbing copies for?Are you finally releasing your exclusive and rare video library collection?And i thought i was the only one!!!
  3. Geeska,Christo really she(AV) does look like Paul Stanly of KISS without the make up.Im not kidding ,check out the pictures of him....The resemblance is stunning..Of course its probably a huge insult to Paul Stanly to say that he looks like Anna Vissi as she is such an ugly old hag....Now Christo did you say she was still nice looking?Was this before a case of beer or after??he,he,he Geeska you probably wont beleave this but i was a huge Kiss fan back in my high school rockand roll days.I think i have seen almost every band that came through the 70's and 80's.....Led Zep,foghat,kiss,Aerosmith,Rush,Blue oyster cult,Stevey ray vaughn.....By the way you may not beleave this but while speaking with Dalaras,did you know he listened to a lot of rock and folk music growing up..We spoke in some detail about this.I was a little surprized but not totally.I figured he was open to different and diverce styles of music...
  4. Well you guys are going to think this comparison is crazy but Dalaras reminds me of Neil Young.I think they are very similar in musical styles and thinking about music..Neil Young is one of my favorite american artists and an incredible guitarist.He sings ballads to rock and roll..Neil Young like Dalaras, its always about the music and not about the fluff!! Chrsto, about Katerina Kouka.I had the great pleasure to be with her and drive her around during the 1996 tour with Dalaras .She is an amazing artist.Great stage presence,good voice..She is one of the few female artists that has stage presence and captures teh audience..I wopuld say she was on her way to being the next Marinella..I think she is still making CD's but had her run in the spotlight and has now blended into the woodwork.I still feel like Eleni Tsalangopoulou is the female artist to look out for..Great talent,voice and a sweethart..I love this woman.She is great! When she is with Dalaras there is chemestry on stage....I would love for her solo career to take off and she would do U.S.a tour..
  5. Great topic Nikola ....Two songs stand out in my mind..The first is "Peristeri mou",every time i hear this song it reminds me of the early days(1984) dating before i married my wife,i would drive around listening to this song thinking about my future..The next song is "Exo ena kafene" this is the song that Dalaras dedicated to me on stage during a show.He was in between songs and thanked me for a gift that i had given him and also said that i was his freind and that he wanted to dedicate the song to me..I was amazed by this gesture and his kindness.The fact that it happened in my home town in front of freinds and family made it more special.I will always remeber these two songs and there special meaning..
  6. Michael ,you have your opinion and i have mine.Your earlier message does not make any since at all.You really confuse and overanalize everything..I will not respond because your letter makes no since and is totally incorrect...But, you are intittled to your opinion...
  7. Now,now Chris ,lets not give away all our secrets!!!!
  8. Nikolas,listen to safti tin petra track, #14..The introduction with the baglama is incredible..I have been listening to this CD continuosly the last few days..It really does remind me of the old Rembetika..What a great CD!!....This CD is probably the best kept secret .Has anyone else heard this CD?.....sarantis
  9. OK Dalaras fans, here is a CD that came out in 1997 and has 5 of the 14 songs by Dalaras.It is called "Emis e ellines"...almost every song of the CD is very good.I especially like , "Nixterino 2" and "Safti tin petra"...This CD has some great songs ,several that remind me of the old style rembetiko music,lots of baglama....Check this CD out.
  10. Nikola,chris there is not much that moves me in greek music besides Dalaras.I must admit that i love the work of Kosta Hadzis,Dionisi Savopoulos,im really listening to a lot of the pix lax stuff.I find that this typeof music is worthy of listening to.I would have to call it thinking music.Eleni Tsalagopoulou really has gotten my attention.Her voice is beautiful she seems classy.I would have to say she is set to be the next Haris Alexiou with her own identety of cource.Im very impreesed with her.Nikola do you know if she tours as a headline act ?What is her popularity in Greece?
  11. Christo,please dont bring up Anna Vissi's name on this site or i will be forced to "throw up"......he,he,he
  12. Chris ,no problem .After you sent me 35 video's of Dalarases concerts,its the least i can do.Didnt i have some video of the Atlanta show on that christmas one?Im leaving for vacation on friday,when i get back i'll make you another copy...
  13. Chris it will be hard to find you in the video since i have never seen you.he,he,he...Chris,i'll tell you afunny story about that video.Everytime i watch it there is a some guy who is dancing during the segment where Glikeria is on stage.Well there is this cheezy mustlebound greek in a tight t-shirt who jumps into the dancing and starts doing this funny leg kick that just has me on the floor laughing.Im so glad Dalaras started doing his shows in theaters and keeping the cheezballs from dancing....Anyway,ill keep an eye out for you in the video...Hey ,your not the guy dancing are you?he,he,he
  14. Chris ,Michael.....lets not let this get ugly.....Chris ,thanks for defending our man"Dalaras"...All you guys who are writing about Dalarases voice on certain songs.You cannot appreciate him unless you have heard him live.By the way,if you have not bought the live concert from the Meadowlands,New Jersey,"Dalaras sings for Cyprus"....I was just watching this video(for the thousandth time).Ity is amazing..He really puts on a great show and his voice is strong on this show..Just fro the record ,Dalaras is using a Beautiful Yamaha APX20D sunburts guitar and for the first time a John Buscarino custom built nylon classical guitar.....Yes i have both of those guitars as well in my collection...Dalaras uses the Buscarino classical exclusively on stage now for the songs that require nylon string..Probably more information than you guys want but hey, im here to give you guys exclusive meaningless details.I have a million more useless details...he,he,he...just ask
