50 years of Olympic

27-05-2012

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the vanguard rock n’ roll band Olympic, and this month the 70th birthday of its founder Petr Janda. Even in the late sixties music critics noted the tremendous impact that Olympic had on Czech pop, or big beat, but probably no one would have guessed that the band would still be playing in the 21st century, or that their Janda would still be on the stage in front of faithful audiences 50 years on.
