NHB shows, death of Demis Roussos!!
« on: January 27, 2015, 09:37:27 AM »
Having watched several NHB's shows lately thanks to Shangri La and AMIT TV, I noticed that MK mentionned Nana Mouskouri and the late Demis Roussos!! As he passed away this week end and he was an international artist who sold 60 millions albums I wonder if MK ever met him?? I assumed that maybe he knew him because Demis Roussos last album was made in London in 2006 if I recall it right!!  :wave

Mark and Brendan joked between them tossing a few artists names into the ring.  I liked the BS one - always gave me a laugh.

If you speak about the NHB, yes it was a great experience.
I wonder what happened  in 2002 as Mark never performed again with BC afterwards.

Funny I did not notice it.

And a reminder of Nana's version

Thank you ds1984,  he said it very quickly so maybe you didn't hear it!! Nana Mouskouri sings it very well by the way,  I like her, it's my Dad's favorite singer and he's 86 years old!! :thumbsup :wave
