Biography[edit]

Early career[edit]

Miroslav Milatović started his career as the drummer for the band Born. After the band disbanded in 1977 Milatović became a member of SOS.

Riblja Čorba[edit]

In 1978, SOS members Milatović, Miša Aleksić and Rajko Kojić formed Riblja Čorba with former Suncokret and Rani Mraz member Bora Đorđević. Milatović remained Riblja Čorba member from its formation to today, leaving it only for a period between 1982 and 1984 due to his army obligations.

Solo works[edit]

In 1986, Milatović released his first solo album U ritmu srca malog dobošara (In the Rhythm of the Little Drummer's Heart) produced by Kornelije Kovač. Milatović formed Vicko Band, a support band for the concerts that followed album release. Vicko Band disbanded after three months due to Milatović's obligations towards Riblja Čorba.

In 2003, he released children's music album Dečaci o devojčicama (Boys about girls). Album featured Bora Đorđević, Momčilo Bajagić, Đorđe David, Billy King, Žika Milenković, Prljavi Inspektor Blaža, Miroslav "Pile" Živanović, Zvonimir Đukić and Dejan Cukić as guest vocalists.

Side projects[edit]

In 1982, Milatović formed heavy metal band Ratnici, but left both Riblja Čorba and Ratnici in the same year due to his army obligations. In 1984, he returned to Riblja Čorba.

In 1990, Milatović joined Delta Project which was formed by his former Warriors and Vicko Band bandmate Dragan Deletić. The band disbanded soon afterwards. In 1993, he joined club band Old Spice, with which he performed in the periods of Riblja Čorba's inactivity.

In 1994, Milatović formed heavy rock band Indijanci, infamous for their erotic lyrics. Band released two studio albums: self-titled Indijanci in 1995 and Ne može biti veselije (Couldn't Be Merrier) in 1997.
