Happy birthday to Alexis Korner

Posted on: Wednesday, Apr 19, 2006

Today would have been the birthday of the grandfather of British blues Alexis Korner – born in France 19 April, 1928. I often wonder what our current music scene would have been like without certin influences. One cannot argue on the influence that American blues has had on popular music, however without people like Alexis I wonder whether rock music would have developed the way that it did.
No Alexis – No Stones – No Led Zep – No Nirvana – No Bullet for my Valentine?

thanks to my daughter Georgina for the last one 😉

Here is a nice bio – stolen from AMG.
