Gilles D.


If Gilles D. joined his father’s group in his teens, he learned to play guitar by himself. The late Michel Leclerc gave him lessons and advices. He collaborated to almost all Elmore’s records, from Basse-Mouse Blues (1997). He studied the masters of Chicago blues such as Willie Johnson and is still attentive to all the lead new comers. He has accompanied Gene Taylor, Keith Dunn, Steven De Bruyn, Clare Free, etc. He organized in Liège, in Outre-Meuse, the regular musical meetings of the Tipi. He is now searching for getting an original electric blues band (notice to candidates…). He is actually teaching guitar and ukulele to his daughter Nora. He has given his name to a gold top built by Dan Durham, the CL2 Benelux (2016) which may be seen on
