During his youth Mišo Kovač lived in the same street in Šibenik as Vice Vukov (b. August 3, 1936 in Šibenik; d. September 24, 2008 in Zagreb) and Arsen Dedić (b. July 28, 1938 in Šibenik; d. August 17, 2015 in Zagreb). Mišo made the HNK Šibenik (Founded in 1921, they were in the Yugoslav Second Division at the time) junior team as a goal-keeper and also barracked for HNK Hajduk Split (Established in 1911, they were in the Yugoslav First Division at the time), often travelling by boat from Šibenik to Split on game day to see HNK Hajduk Split play. His earliest goals in life were to eventually represent HNK Hajduk Split, but that changed at age 16 when he heard Ljube Lučev sing and then devoted himself entirely to music. His early musical influences were Italian artists Luciana Tajolija, Tony Dellaga and Adriano Celentano, as well as American singers, Johnnie Ray, Elvis Presley, and later Willie Nelson. In 1961 he shared equal first place with Mirko Vukšić, future guitarist with Croatian group Mi [We], in a talent contest called “Prvi glas Šibenika” (First voice of Šibenik), where he covered an Elvis Presley hit.
