Kostas Kollias was born in 1945 in Kalyvia, Attica. His first recording work, "If I Lose You If", in 1976, caused a stir, mainly with his authentic popular voice.

Then came the LP "Hearts That Love You". But the big 'bam' came in 1980 with Takis Souka - Heracles Papassideris' "My Love to You", which kicked off his career. Everyone was talking flattering words about the young, fast-rising singer. Kostas Kollias had started recording his new songs. Unfortunately, he failed to finish his job as he was killed on June 4, 1980, in a road accident on the Lagonissi-Kalivia road. He had planned to record six great songs, including music by Antonis Repanis, which were included, along with six others, by Elena Kostis, in the album entitled "My Last Songs. And yet it is good. "

Perhaps K. Kaplanoglu's verses "... out of life I will leave today ..." from the song "Cast Oil on Fire" included in this album were prophetic.
