You know I like you but do not believe me...

In recent months, radio stations, clubs, iΡod-s, even at 50-year-ols parties – you can hear the hit song "You know I like you, but do not believe me", which even before releasing a video gathered a record of 500,000 visits in YouΤube. 

The author and performer of the song, Rous is successfully covered by the media and as he said in an interview "I like that the media is after me and even though I am a TV maniac, I do not want to be shown on TV”. His only TV involvement was in the TV show "Radio Cuban”, where his band came out to perform their hit. 

Rous or as his real name is Georgios Georgiadis is not of this type of performers who are accustomed to be served to us on a silver platter. The 33-year-old Rous is a musician, who is really keeping himself away from public light and fast fame. From the age of 22 he lives alone and provides for himself alone and as he says, he has done everything. 

But music was always his passion and he was never worried about whether it will lead to a career or not. The song, which became a hit on the Greek radio stations is part of Rous’ first CD «-----(+)(-)-----», which has been on the market since mid-March by the music company Αrchangel. 

"I wrote this song in 2008 and the right person heard it - one of my friends who had contacts in those circles. For the first time we uploaded the song in a music portal and so the whole story began" says Rous. After that the song takes its own way: "Everything happened so fast, I did not expect it and it took me some time to realize it... Later I was even thinking of whether there is room for this piece on the CD..." says Rous

"We do not want to see what people write in YouTube anymore. I cannot get used to comments, they drive me crazy," says the 33-year-old musician who quite expectedly fell in the eye of the cyclone. 

Rous says he grew up with the music of The Beatles and Elvis from his mother’s side, with the rock music of his father, and he has discovered Greek rock by listening to Pavlos Sidiropoulos."But I still get crazy with Manos Hadzhidakis’ album "Smile of La Gioconda"... A found out about it few years ago, don’t think I knew about it before. Although I have always listened to Greek rock – Thessaloniki bands like Tripes, Xilina spatia without which I believe rock in Greece would not be what it is" admits Rous. 

ΙΝFΟ 

Rous live in «Κoo Κoo» (17Yakhou Str., Gazi, tel. 210 34 50 930) on Friday May 7, 14, 21 and 28.
