“Daniel isn’t impersonating Elvis, Jerry Lee, Chuck Berry, or Gene Vincent, he IS one of those guys” � – Eamonn McCan, Hot Press

Rock & roll legend Daniel Jeanrenaud truly made his mark on the underground of the British music scene when he moved to London and took up his 11-year residency at the infamous semi-legal drinking den at the back of Marathon Kebab Shop on the Chalk Farm Road.

This 6-day-a-week all-night party became notorious on the London scene, attracting cameo appearances and fanatical praise from the likes of Jack White, Amy Winehouse, Paul Weller, Robert Plant and Kevin Shields.

With a sound and spirit straight of the old-school juke joints where rock & roll was born, Daniel Jeanrenaud is one of last real carriers of that authentic, explosive sound and attitude.

Here’s how the legend was made….

At just 18-years old, the young Marseille guitar-slinger moved to San Francisco to form the hard-hitting blues-rockabilly outfit The Kingsnakes with former members of psychedelic heroes The Flamin’ Groovies. Under Jeanrenaud’s leadership The Kingsnakes became West Coast cult legends and ended up touring with rock & roll royalty like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Bo Diddley.

“When we opened for Chuck Berry, he broke a string and I lent him my Gibson. He came up after and said “you’re good – now I’ve played Nadine on your guitar you can name it Nadine”. I thought I could die right there – Chuck Berry had just told me that I could play, and named my guitar”.

After a few years hard playing (and partying) with the likes of Sly Stone, Jeanrenaud moved back to France and re-formed The Kingsnakes with super-fan, Manu Chao, as part of the band.
But Jeanrenaud truly made his mark on the underground of the British music scene when he moved to London and took up his 11-year residency at the infamous semi-legal drinking den at the back of Marathon Kebab Shop on the Chalk Farm Road.
