Gene Chandler









Gene Chandler, de son vrai nom Eugène Dixon, est né le 6 juillet 1937 à Chicago. Dès l'âge de huit ans, il commence à chanter. Par la suite, il forme des groupes pour chanter dans les soirées et les clubs. En 1960, il devient professionnel, et en 1962 il signe un contrat avec la maison de disques Vee Jay. Quelques jours après avoir signé son contrat, il enregistre la chanson "Duke Of Earl", un des plus beaux morceaux de Rhythm & Blues. C'est le succès et le disque obtient la première place au Billboard pendant trois semaines, et se vend à plus d'un million d'exemplaires.
