Λαυρέντης Μαχαιρίτσας ( Lavrentis Machairitsas, born 11 May 1956) is a popular Greek rock musician from Volos. He was born in Volos, and at the 6 he began taking piano lessons. These lessons lasted a year. At the age of 9 he bought his first record, which was Help! by The Beatles. After three years he discovered the record Revolver by the Beatles. His first job was at a record store (Minos Matsas), but due to his lack of punctuality he was fired (chance has it that his current label is MINOS-EMI).
