MUDDY-WATERS-SIDEMAN PAUL OSCHER AN CORONA GESTORBEN
- Apr 21, 2021
Just over a week ago, Blues veteran Paul Oscher (*5.4.1950) was allowed to leave the isolation ward in the hospital, after he had only been able to lie in bed for over a month in his fight against Covid-19 until the beginning of April, before rehabilitation measures began. Through Facebook, the harmonica player/singer and one-time Muddy Waters sideman (1967-1971) kept the Blues community updated, including that work on his book about his experiences in the Blues business was nearly complete. Along the same path came news on the night of April 18-19 that he had become a victim of the Corona pandemic. Most recently, Oscher, who also performed on German stages, had released an album with COOL CAT in 2018. He died at the age of 71.
