Manfred Mann

Manfred Mann songs and albums
Manfred Mann was an English rock and blues band who first formed in London in 1962. Named after their keyboardist, Manfred Mann was born Manfred Sepse Lubowitz on October 21, 1940, in Johannesburg, South Africa. Manfred Mann’s original line-up consisted of drummer Michael John Hugg (born in Gosport on August 11, 1942), Romford born keyboardist Graham John Clifton Bond (born October 28, 1937, died May 8, 1974), guitarist, flautist and saxophonist Michael Vickers (born in Southampton April 18, 1940), bassist David Henry Richmond (born in Brighton in 1938) and vocalist Paul Jones (born Paul Pond in Portsmouth on February, 24 1942). Manfred Mann enjoyed a first flush of success with Jones, however his burgeoning acting career took over and in 1966 he was replaced by Michael ‘Mike’ David d'Abo (born March 1, 1944 in Betchworth). The first incarnation of the band split in 1969, becoming Manfred Mann Chapter Three and Manfred Mann’s Earth Band in 1971. The original members of Manfred Mann reformed – with both Jones and d’Abo onboard – as The Manfreds in 1991, as the absence of Manfred Mann himself – who was still touring with a version of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band - forced them to adopt a new name.
