Alexis Korner
Alexis Korner was known as “The Father of Britsh Blues”. His band “Blues Incorporated” was another “breeding ground” for a number of budding British musicians. A neophyte Mick Jagger got his start with “Blues Incorporated”. It was Alexis who said “this guy is going to be big some day” when Mick could barely carry a tune. Alexis died of cancer on New Years day, 1984 at the age of 56
