Alexis Corner

Alexis Korner (19 April 1928 – 1 January 1984) was a blues musician and radio broadcaster, who has sometimes been referred to as “a founding father of British Blues“. An major influence on the sound of the British music scene in the 1960s, Korner was instrumental in bringing together various English blues musicians. Alexis Andrew Nicholas Koerner was born in Paris to an Austrian Jewish father and a half-Turkish half-Greek mother, and spent his childhood in France, Switzerland and North Africa. He arrived in London in 1940 at the start of World War II. One memory of his youth was listening to a record by black pianist Jimmy Yancey during a German air raid. Korner said, “From then on all I wanted to do was play the blues.”Klik hier voor meer informatie.
