Artist Biography by

Former John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers guitarist/bassist Geoff Krivit formed the short-lived blues and boogie group Doctor K's Blues Band with pianist Richard "Dr. K" Kaye and vocalist/harmonica player Mick Hasse in 1967. Although their self-titled album, released in 1968, showcased masterful interpretations of blues classics and included a memorable piano boogie, "Crippled Clarence," sales were virtually nonexistent and the group disbanded. Most members of Doctor K's Blues Band, including Krivit (who had shown great promise when he briefly replaced Eric Clapton in Mayall's Bluesbreakers), disappeared from the music scene. Drummer Eric Peachey briefly resurfaced as a member of Steve Hillage's early-'70s group Khan.
