Born: March 24, 1948
Harmonica wizard and entrepreneur Lee Oskar was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1948. Oskar landed in the States in the mid 60’s and is most popularly known as one of the founding members of the seminal jam band WAR. Together with Harold Brown, BB Dickerson, Howard Scott, Lonie Jordan, Charles Miller, and “Papa Dee” Allen, WAR started out supporting the former Animal front man, Eric Burdon. Together with Burdon, their very first recorded effort contained the popular tune “Spill The Wine,” unleashing the genre-busting sound of WAR for the first time.
Not far down the road the group set out on their own to compose and perform huge hits like, “All Day Music,” “City Country City,” “Me and Baby Brother,” “Low Rider,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “The Cisco Kid,” “Slipping into Darkness,” “The World is a Ghetto,” and many others....
