Biography[edit]

Miša Aleksić started his career in 1970 in a band called Royali as their bass guitarist and vocalist. In 1970 the band won second place at the contest organized by editors of Radio Belgrade show Veče uz radio.

In 1971 Aleksić went to United States of America where he graduated at Pikesville High School in Pikesville, Maryland. With other students he formed rockabilly band Shih-Muh-Fuh (abbreviation from Shit Motherfucker).

Influenced by the music of Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, after returning to Yugoslavia, Aleksić formed SOS with Dragan Štulović (guitar), Dragan Tasić (guitar) and Stevan Stevanović (drums). After Tasić left the band SOS continued performing as a trio. In 1977 Štulović and Stevanović left the band and were replaced by Rajko Kojić and Vicko Milatović. In 1978 Aleksić, Kojić and Milatović formed Riblja Čorba with a former Rani Mraz member Bora Đorđević.

During his career Aleksić wrote songs for Zdravko Čolić, Biljana Petrović, Jazzy Bell, Milorad Mandić and Run Go. He is also an album producer, and has produced, alongside part of Riblja Čorba albums, Warriors, Jazzy Bell, Minđušari, Bora Đorđević, Run Go and Prozor albums.
