DIGGING DEEP...

A cliche it may be, but John Mayall's band really has been an academy for the Blues. The alumni of the various manifestations of his bands, from the Bluesbreakers through the less well known, but no less accomplished, 1970s groups, show that his musical collectives were better than most any other group, on either side of the Atlantic. It's a sad fact, that too many people that are ironically drawn to his illustrious alumni, overlook John Mayall. He, more than any other white musician, is due enormous credit for advancing the cause. He's been called 'The Godfather of The Blues'... you better believe it. "If you're a bandleader, your main focus is to play your own music" John Mayall.
