The blues are alive – in Germany too

Back in the late Fifties and early Sixties the blues were pretty much defunct. Few other than diehards who frequented the few struggling joints in the Deep South, Chicago and New York could be bothered with the blues, and that goes for African Americans too. That the blues survived, and later even spawned all the great rock groups of the Sixties – including the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who, to mention but a few – was down to the likes of British blues revivalist Alexis Korner and, later, John Mayall, Peter Green and Eric Clapton.

So, considering his Serbian family backdrop and German birthplace, one might assume that Todor “Toscho” Todorovic feeds off a similar cultural reference point.
