Biografie

Frank Frost (April 15, 1936 — October 12, 1999 (aged 63)[1] was one of the foremost American delta blues harmonica players of his generation.
Life and career

Born Frank Otis Frost in Auvergne, Arkansas, United States, Frost learned to play piano at church as a young boy. He moved to St. Louis, Missouri at age 15, and spent time as a guitarist with drummer Sam Carr and Carr’s father, Robert Nighthawk. He learned to play harmonica from Sonny Boy Williamson, who he toured with.[2]

While playing with guitarist Big Jack Johnson, Frost attracted the interest of the record producer Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records. Some recordings of note that followed included „Hey Boss Man“ and „My Back Scratcher“.[1][2]

In the late 1970s, Frost was re-discovered by a blues enthusiast, Michael Frank, who began releasing albums on his Earwig Music Company label by the trio, now called The Jelly Roll Kings, after a song from Hey Boss Man.[1]

Frost appeared in the films Deep Blues: A Musical Pilgrimage to the Crossroads and Crossroads.[3]

He died of cardiac arrest in Helena, Arkansas in 1999.[1][2]
