    John Mayall

    “The Godfather of the British Blues”, John Mayall’s impressive career spans over fifty years. Mayall first gained notoriety during the late '60s as founder of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, at the same time he discovered Eric Clapton. Clapton and Mayall went on to release a hit album for the Bluesbreakers. Mayall became as well known for discovering new talent (John McVie and Mick Fleetwood who became Fleetwood Mac and Mick Taylor who joined the Rolling Stones, among others) as for his hard-hitting interpretations of the fierce Chicago-style blues he'd grown up listening to. Throughout the eighties and nineties, John's popularity surged with a succession of dynamic albums such as Behind The Iron Curtain, Chicago Line, A Sense of Place, and the Grammy-nominated Wake Up Call. His 2003, 70th Birthday concert DVD was called "one of the finest nights of blues this millennium.” Mayall was featured in the BBC documentary 'The Godfather of British Blues' and to coincide with the release of 'Road Dogs' in 2005, Mayall was awarded an OBE by The Queen's Honours list. In the Spring of 2007, John Mayall released his critically-acclaimed 56th album: 'In The Palace Of The King. His latest is his 2010 Live DVD. Mayall, at 70-years-old, shows no indication of slowing down. Only plans to keep dishing the blues for years to come.
