  • 1942 Paul Jones, English singer (Mighty Quinn-Manfred Mann) and radio presenter (The Blues Show), born in Portsmouth, England
From wiki wiki: Paul Jones was born as Paul Pond in Portsmouth, Hampshire.[1][2] As "P.P. Jones" he performed duets with Elmo Lewis (better known as future founder member of the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones) at the Ealing Club, home of Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, whose singers included Long John Baldry and Mick Jagger. He was asked by Keith Richards and Brian Jones to be the lead singer of a group they were forming, but he turned them down.[3] He went on to be the vocalist and harmonica player of the successful 1960s group Manfred Mann.[1] Paul Jones had several Top Ten hits with Manfred Mann, including the international number one single "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" (1964), before going solo in July 1966.
