The beginning edit ]Edit

Mann formed his first band in 1962 with Mike Hugg , The Mann Hugg Blues Brothers, but both remained in the background during performances. Their manager was able to pry loose a contract Decca , but after one week left Decca to fail, they saw no bread. Then it was tried to EMI and they were more successful. First, however, a singer had to be found; The singer and star of the band in the early years was / were Paul Jones , later a successful actor. Because everyone thought Paul Jones Manfred Mann was, Mann wrote the song 'The one in the middle ", thus Paul Jones was in live performances show the difference.

The group began her career with appearances in the Studio 51 in Great Newport Street in London, in the same period as well as the Rolling Stones - still unsigned - there covers of Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley came to play.

Third time lucky, and also for Mann: their third single 5-4-3-2-1 meant for the group's breakthrough. The conscious song was even a time jingle Ready Steady Go , a popular British television program devoted to rock and pop music.

The group had - despite the supremacy of the Beatles - several number one hits in the UK , including a cover version of Do wah diddy diddy by The Exciters and the song Pretty Flamingo .

When Jones the band in 1966 left, at the height of their fame, was Mike D'Abo new singer. With him, the band remained at the top and they again had a number of major hits, including Bob Dylan's song Mighty Quinn ( 1968 ). The following year they broke up.

After the breakup of the group, Mann started writing advertising jingles, and he and Hugg formed a new band, Manfred Mann Chapter Three, after two albums in 1970, was lifted.
