Drafi Deutscher in 1989

Drafi Deutscher (born 9 May 1946 as Drafi Franz Richard Deutscher in Berlin; died 9 June 2006 in Frankfurt am Main) was a German singer and composer of Romani/Sinti ("Gypsy") heritage. His best known song was the 1965 Schlager Marmor, Stein und Eisen bricht, which was featured in the 2006 movie Beerfest during the Oktoberfest scene. He also composed several worldwide hits, e.g., for Boney M., Nino de Angelo and Tony Christie. In the 1980s he achieved a huge success with his duo Mixed Emotions together with Oliver Simon and Christopher Evans Ironside, collaborating also with the latter in Masquerade, including their cowritten hit Guardian Angel.
