The interview was translated and published via the Greek Rock Hard magazine and was also broadcasted on my online radio show at www.hardrockradiolive.com. This is the unedited/uncut version of the interview. R.I.P. Ronnie. You were an amazing human being. It was an honor to meet you," commented Spiliotopoulos.
