On the move

For ten years, Ehud Banai went around with a recording sample that nobody wanted to hear. In 1985, aged 32, Banai worked as a gardener and was still seeking a gateway into the Israeli music industry. Yossi Elephant was a great guitarist who dreamt of being an international rock legend, but hadn’t managed to penetrate the Tel Aviv club scene. He had a heart defect and felt that he was going to die young.
