Folk Singer, Poet. His songs, although having the form of Serbian folk music, had the spirit of chansons. He had a characteristic vocal, not overly powerful but warm, resembling that of Charles Aznavour. The violin underlined the melancholic atmosphere in most songs. Most of the lyrics were written by himself, devoted to unfortunate love, and love-suffering while drinking and singing in bars. He married four times. Some of his most renowned songs are "Prokleta je ova nedelja" ("Damn this Sunday"), "Dotak'o sam dno zivota" ("I Touched the Bottom of Life") "Pesme moje" ("My Songs"). His younger brother Novica continued his legacy and work.
