John Mayall British Blues Legend

John Mayall, (born 29 November 1933) is an English blues singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, whose musical career spans over fifty years. In the 1960s, he was the founder of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, a band which has included among others Eric Clapton,  Mick Fleetwood, Don “Sugarcane” Harris, Harvey Mandel,  Walter Trout, and Coco Montoya

Influenced by his father Murray a guitarist and jazz music enthusiast, John was drawn from an early age to the sounds of American blues players such as Leadbelly, Albert Ammons, Pinetop Smith, and Eddie Lang, and taught himself to play the piano, guitars, and harmonica.
Mayall spent three years in Korea for national service and, during a period of leave, he bought his first electric guitar. In 1963, he opted for a full time musical career and moved to London.
Mayall married twice and has six grand-children. Maggie Mayall is an American blues performer and has, since the early 1980s, taken an active part in the management of her husband’s career.
In 2005 Mayall was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
