I was born in Herstal, near Liège (B) in 1946. I started playing guitar and signing the blues in the sixties in the circle of my wife Alice, with her brothers Bruno and Jean-Marie and sometimes with my brother Yo. In 1984, I met blues amateurs et collectors Jean-Pierre Urbain and Joseph Brems, and we started to broadcast show, “Les douze mesures” (The Twelve Bars) on the Liège University Radio. In 1987, I went on a trip with my son Gilles and my wife to Mississippi, where we met Jack Owens, who maintained Skip James’ tradition of open minor tuning, in Bentonia. During the 1990s, I frequented the Crossroads Café in Antwerp and started playing with Raf ‘Lazy Horse’ Timmermans and ‘Big Dave’ Reniers. From 1999 to around 2005, we performed in many festivals in Belgium and foreign countries. I have released six albums. I am still occasionally performing with my son Gilles and some old friends. My daughter Alice is herself a dedicated blues connoisseur.
