I’m a huge fan of the British blues musician and band leader John Mayall, who turns 84 years young today (11/29).
He is most famous for the albums he recorded in the sixties with a whole host of great musicians, some of whom have since became world famous including: John McVie, Mick Fleetwood (albeit in his case briefly), Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Mick Taylor.
In the seventies he moved to California and he has continued to play concerts and record albums in all the years since then – and despite the concentration of great musicians who went through his band in the sixties — the man is a first rate musician and singer all on his own!
His 2017 release is titled
Talk About That
And if you like the blues you might give it a listen on his birthday!
Songs on the LP include: Talk About That, It’s Hard Going Up, The Devil Must Be Laughing, Gimme Some of That Gumbo, Blue Midnight and You Never Know.
Have a great day!
P.S. Being a modern man, John Mayall even has an official website which is found at: http://www.johnmayall.com/
