  Alexis Korner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alexis Korner (April 19, 1928 Paris - January 1, 1984 London), was an English blues musician, born to an Austrian father and Greek mother.
Alexis Korner is probably better remembered as a networker and blues historian, alhough he was a proficient guitarist and a distinctive (if not accomplished) vocalist.
Often referred to as "the Father of British Blues", Korner was instrumental in bringing together various English blues musicians, such as John Mayall as well as Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who went on to form the Rolling Stones.

 BluePower.Com: Alexis Korner....King Of The British Blues Scene!
Without Alexis Korner, there still might have been a British blues scene in the early 1960s, but chances are that it would have been very different from the one that spawned the Rolling Stones, nurtured the early talents of Eric Clapton and made it possible for figures such as John Mayall to reach an audience.
Korner and Davies made their first record in 1957, and in early 1962, they formed Blues Incorporated, a "supergroup" (for its time) consisting of the best players on the early '60s British blues scene.
Korner soldiered on, but the explosion of British rock in 1963, and the wave of blues-based rock bands that followed, including the Rolling Stones, the Animals, and the Yardbirds undercut any chance he had for commercial success.

 British blues
Players like Alexis Korner and Chris Barber came from jazz and skiffle backgrounds in the 1950s and it was through these influences that they incorporated blues.
Korner's London blues scene was also the start of many, if not most, of Britain's great blues-influenced rock bands and musicians of the 1960s, including Eric Clapton, Long John Baldry, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, the Kinks, the Yardbirds, Manfred Mann, future members of Cream and the Small Faces, and even Ron Wood's older brother Arthur Wood.
Korner's own success never really expanded, however, beyond being recognized as the seminal influential figure that he was for all these artists, and particularly the Stones.

Most of his source material started life on the US race records' lists, from which collective whammy his originals were also born, but Korner was never into mere re-enactments of little-known (in Britain) fl American releases.
