Vlassis started his music career by creating a group called "ΠΕΛΟΜΑ ΜΠΟΚΙΟΥ", ("PELOMA BOKIOU") in the early 1970s, which was named after the initials of the names of the members of the group. In the early 80's he took part in the legendary theatrical play "Evita" starring Alice Vougiouklaki (Αλίκη Βουγιουκλάκη) playing the role of Che. He maintained a relationship with the "national" Star of Greece for several years. Then he took up acting and starred in TV programmes and Greek movies. He also presented TV shows and gameshows on Greek TV including Family Feud (Kontres). He died suddenly in 2004, aged 54. According to the press his death was due to obstructive swollen laryngitis.
