Manfred Mann Biography

Manfred Mann whose real name is Manfred Sepse Lubowitz was born on 21st October 1940 in Johannesburg, Transvaal in South Africa. He is a South African- British keyboard player,guitarist, and vocalist. He is a founding member of Manfred Mann, Manfred Mann Chapter Three and Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.

Career

He studied music at the University of the Witwatersrand, and worked as a jazz pianist at a number of clubs in Johannesburg. Between 1959 and 1961 he and his childhood friend Saul Ozynski recorded two albums as the Vikings – South Africa’s first rock and roll band.
In 1961 he moved to the United Kingdom due to the apartheid system and began to write for “Jazz News” under the pseudonym Manfred Manne (after jazz drummer Shelly Manne), which was soon shortened to Manfred Mann.
In 1962 he met Mike Hugg at Clacton Butlins Holiday Camp and together they formed a large blues-jazz band called the Mann-Hugg Blues Brothers. This eventually evolved into a 5-piece group and they signed a record deal with EMI in 1963, under the HMV label.
Manfred  also appeared as a jazz pianist in the 1969 Jesús Franco film Venus in Furs and performed the score for that film.
They changed their name to Manfred Mann at the suggestion of the label’s record producer, and from 1964 to 1969 they had a succession of hit records: (“Do Wah Diddy Diddy”, “Sha La La”, “Pretty Flamingo”, “Mighty Quinn”).
In 1969 the group split and Mann formed another group with Mike Hugg and named it Manfred Mann Chapter Three, an experimental jazz rock band. They disbanded after two albums.
