Vangelis On The Double-Edged Sword Of Success

In this short interview except, Vangelis shares his take on the double-edged sword of success in the music business.

From Vangelis, achieving mainstream success was necessary to be able to have the tools of his trade – a recording studio of his own, stocked with state of the art gear.

But achieving mainstream success also meant that he had to work 100% at being successful, and he was never interested in doing that. And having a hit meant that he was under pressure to repeat his success, when he was always interested in doing something new.
