1944: Joachim Krauledat (John Kay, lead vocalist with Steppenwolf) is born in Tilsit, Germany. His father is killed in combat in Russia, and Joachim grows up in Hannover, West Germany. He and his mother move to Toronto in 1958. He learns English by listening to the DJ’s on the radio. He also absorbs the music. Are we glad for that.
