George Armeniakos
Born in Athens Greece. His love about Rock N Roll music came in a very early age when he heard for the first time the song ``Rock Around The clock`` on the radio broadcasting by the American Station from U.S. base in Athens. That was the first hit! And everything was completed when a tape passed to his hands by a friend called "SUN SESSIONS", recorded by Elvis and the Blue moon boys( Scotty and Bill).

That was it! From that day, his life has never been the same...

Yiannis Varlas
Born in downtown Athens Greece. The love of his father about Rock N Roll music effect him from a very young age. The daily sound of R' n R' in his house had a serious effect on the musical interests as a child (badly brain damaged!!!) in a way that learnin' the rhythm and the beat of R' n R' on his mother's pans and furniture made his mother's scream sound the R' n R' way! Growing up his musical interests became his life style( Harleys, muscle-cars ,hot-rods etc.)
