Here’s today’s club member that I have never heard of Zen De Fleur. Zen De Fleur was born on 9th September 1951 in ShepherdsBush (London). His real name was Zenon Hierowski.
He was educated at the Cardinal Vaughan Grammar School (Kensington) and Imperial College (London).
Zen’s musical career started when he made his first guitar in the school workshop in 1966. In 1967, he formed his first band called Long Pig, which lasted until 1969.
Chrome was formed in 1973, and out of the remnants, Zen formed The Count Bishops in July 1975.
He has previously and occasionally worked as a freelance accountant and a company director.
Zen’s musical influences were The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, STONES, Elvis PRESLEY, John Mayall, Savoy Brown and other blues artists. He played a Fender Telecaster and an Epiphone Riviera, through two blonde Vox AC 30’s.
Zen died on 18th March 1979 from injuries sustained in a car crash after a BISHOPS’ gig on 10th March 1979.
Below is one of the songs he performed with The Count Bishops. Enjoy as usual.
