In the decade before the far-reaching telephone call that started The Blues Band, Paul had been a hard-working actor, mainly in London’s West End but also on Broadway (he lived in New York for a year). But always at heart he was a bluesman. Having declined Brian Jones’ invitation to join the fledgling Rolling Stones in 1962, Paul accepted the very next offer, a job with the group which soon became Manfred Mann. Later known as a pop group (Do Wah Diddy, Pretty Flamingo) they began as an R&B band, and would find themselves playing with Sonny Boy Williamson, Otis Spann, and Matt “Guitar” Murphy.P+D Over the years, Paul’s songs have been recorded by people like Ten Years After, Al Kooper and Carlos Santana – and the earliest line-up of Steppenwolf. He has also written for films, television and commercials. As a harmonica man, he has performed publicly and/or recorded with Memphis Slim, Alexis Korner, Henry Gray, Alvin “Youngblood” Hart, Susan Tedeschi, Eric Bibb, Otis Grand – hardly to mention the likes of Tina Turner and the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
