Kostas Zafiriou of Pink Cream 69

01 Jun

The person at the intro of this video is drummer Kostas Zafiriou, born in Switzerland in 1966.

In 1987 he was one of the founding members of the German hard rock band Pink Cream 69.

The group formed in Karlsruhe and gained their first contract by winning music magazine Metal Hammer’s newcomer competition in Ludwigsburg one year after forming.

The line up had as follows: Andi Deris, Dennis Ward, Kostas Zafiriou and Alfred Koffler.

In 1994, Andi Deris left the band to join German power metal band Helloween. He was replaced by British singer David Readman. The band, often referred to as The Pinkies, became a five-piece in 2003, when Uwe Reitenauer was hired to support guitar player Alfred Koffler, who suffered from neuropathy.

Zafiriou joined the German power metal Axxis as a session musician in 2004, when they released the album “Time Machine”.
