J'ai entendu Vangelis pour la première fois en 1972 et depuis je n'ai jamais cessé d'écouter sa musique, dans les mauvais et les bons moments que la vie nous offre. Repose en paix Grand Maître ton œuvre est éternelle et continuera d'être entendue par les Humains et les Dieux de l'Olympe auxquels tu as désormais adhéré.

You made the world a more beautiful place. God speed, Vangelis, and thank you.

Jean-Michel Jarre: “Dear Vangelis,
We will all remember your unique touch and your moving melodies forever.
You & I have always shared the same passion for synthesizers and electronic music since so long…
May you Rest In Peace”

Exactly 3 weeks (26 April) after Klaus Schulze, another hero of mine, left us so does Evángelos Papathanassíou. And I started listening to them at about the same time in 1977. So Long Ago, So Clear. Goodbye, and Thank You!
