Akropolis biography
Danish band AKROPOLIS was probably formed sometime around 1975 by Jens Lund (vocals, guitars), Jørn Bennedbæk (guitars), James Templeton (keyboards), Hans Johannsen (bass) and James Pearson (drums). Lund and Bennedbæk had previously been members of Red Mustangs, a band that started out as a rhythm and blues act in the late 60's and switched to a style inspired by bands like Colosseum prior to disbanding in 1974. The previous history of the other members are less known, and the sparse material at hand about Akropolis suggests that tangents man Templeton was the band leader.

Akropolis tenure as a force in the Danish progressive rock environment proved to be short-lived, as their sole legacy is the 1979 album "Half a Million Hours Symphony". Keyboardist Templeton formed a new band in 1980, and it is believed that Akropolis had disbanded at this point.
