I'm sitting here in my home in Ireland & wondering if I'll ever get the pleasure of seeming John Mayall & Bluesbreakers
live, in the meantime I still have the vinyl of Steppin'Out in my attic, you never know, what great music

Roy Robart - Thu, Mar 5th, 2015 1:06 AM PST
The blues album that started it for me was "The World of John Mayall" and I went on to see JM live many times, even shaking his hand in Brisbane after a gig. I still have the vinyl, but no spinner. Has that album ever been released digitally?

Yves GENSOUS - Thu, Mar 5th, 2015 12:11 AM PST
Hi John,
Thanks for all these years.
The 1st time I saw you in January 1970
in Metz (France).
I'm waiting the release "Live in 1967"

tisi - Sat, Feb 28th, 2015 8:20 PM PST
You got it!

Jerry F - Sat, Feb 28th, 2015 12:00 PM PST
Dear Mr. Mayall, Thank you so much for all of the terrific music you've made over the years. I learned to play the harmonica by listening to your recordings. Although I enjoy so many of your songs, 'Red Sky' is one of my favorite blues songs from any artist ever. You are truly an irreplaceable talent. Best wishes!

Dear Alex (23rd Feb) - Thu, Feb 26th, 2015 11:08 AM PST
It's always great to hear enthusiastic requests for John and the band to play in different places, but we're sorry to say that they most likely won't be back in Scotland or Wales this year. Hopefully next year! -

Dear Mike (21st Feb) - Wed, Feb 25th, 2015 10:51 AM PST
Thank you for your question. We checked the King Center website today, and they do have John's show listed on the 15th May if you click on the calendar. They may just have added it, but it's there now. It does mention though that the tickets don't go on sale until midday on the 6th March, so you won't be able to purchase your tickets until then. We hope you enjoy the show! -

Product Description
Before they were Fleetwood Mac, they were John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Never before heard live performances from 1967. In 1967, before there was a Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood were John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The four musicians were only together for three months, which makes it even more remarkable that a staunch fan from Holland was able to sneak a one channel reel to reel tape recorder into five London clubs and capture this exciting glimpse into music history. For almost fifty years these tapes have remained unheard until John recently got them and began restoring them with the technical assistance of Eric Corne of Forty Below Records. Corne adds "While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are."

Alex Fisher - Mon, Feb 23rd, 2015 9:35 AM PST
All the people down south ask for gigs in England, What about gigs in Scotland and of course our friends in Wales!!Hope to see back soon in Glasgow.

mike bradley - Sat, Feb 21st, 2015 3:38 PM PST
I listen to "I'm going to fight for you, JB" and California about every day. I see John is coming to Melbourne, Fl, the King Center, in May. I checked the King Center for tickets, it doesn't list his concert. Any idea why not?

Tom Plant - Sat, Feb 21st, 2015 1:49 AM PST
Back in 1967 (I think) I went to a draughty warehouse in Leicester, brown suit/short hair to see a bunch of local bands belt out Atlantic/ Stax soul covers.
On another stage were the Bluesies as I thought of them. Fairport Convention (bunch of folkie students I thought - love them since), then Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac who pricked my attention somewhat then JM came on stage with his Bluesbreakers, introducing an 18 year old Mick Taylor on guitar.
I had never heard or experienced anything like that previously, just wonderful, and while I still enjoy a bit of soul it is the blues that carried me through all these years.
In the space of an hour john Mayall changed a big part of my life for the better.
I have been a fan of his music as well as the blues in general ever since.
So good to hear you still performing and keeping it real and fresh.
Looking forward to seeing you again at Bluesfest Byron Bay come Easter.

Francisco J. Caraza Obregòn - Fri, Feb 20th, 2015 7:05 PM PST
Since 1969 I am a Mr.Mayall´s Fan, I think he is one of the best musican and singer of the Blues !!!! Congratulations !!!In this moment I am listening Lots of People (LP)

Phil Wolf - Thu, Feb 19th, 2015 2:00 PM PST
Hi John, The Bluesbreakers album introduced me to the blues many years ago. I saw you years ago at the Fillmore East when I was in high school. Always love the way you keep the music so fresh. Hope you plan on returning to the Northeast sometime soon (I'm in Vermont). Maybe on 11/29? It's my birthday too. - Phil

Dear Michael (12th Feb) - Wed, Feb 18th, 2015 11:41 AM PST
We'd have to agree with Richard, that it's most likely to be Freddie Robinson. -

Dear Monica (14th Feb) - Wed, Feb 18th, 2015 11:23 AM PST
We're always happy to hear people's enthusiasm for seeing John and the band play! Sorry to say that we don't have a firm answer for you yet. They may be back in the UK this year, but we have no confirmed dates at the moment. We will post any dates on our "tour schedule" page as soon as they're confirmed and you're always welcome to check back with us. -

Monica Kelly - Sat, Feb 14th, 2015 4:23 AM PST
Hi, I know everyone wants to see John all over the world and I'm being very selfish!! But, is he coming to England at all in 2015? I know he has recently been and I saw him twice,lucky me.We always want more though!

Richard - Sat, Feb 14th, 2015 2:15 AM PST
To Michael Discus It was probably Freddie Robinson on guitar in 1973

Michael Discus - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 9:57 PM PST
Saw John Mayall at Ball State University Emens Auditorium in 1973. Who played guitar in the band?

Dear Maureen (4th Feb) - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 12:52 PM PST
Thank you for your comments! We checked with the booking agents and they don't think there'll be any shows in New York this year, but are hoping that there will be next year. -

Dear Fabio (7th Feb) - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 12:46 PM PST
Thank you for your comments! We're sorry to say that we don't know of any video from the "Jazz Blues Fusion" era that's available to buy. There's certainly no official release. -

Kathryn Wilson - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 12:46 PM PST
So looking forward to your performances at Bluesfest. Wishing you all a safe and relaxing trip. You can be sure of the warmest welcome Downunder.

Dear Jim (Feb 7th) - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 11:07 AM PST
We checked with the booking agents, and at the moment there isn't anything in the works for the Connecticut area. We hope they'll be booking something soon! -

Dear Gary (6th Feb) - Thu, Feb 12th, 2015 10:59 AM PST
We have had so many requests for the piano chords for that particular song! We're sorry to say though that we don't know of anywhere to get them, and as John is self-taught and doesn't read music we have no way of writing them down. -

A long-time fan - Tue, Feb 10th, 2015 5:50 AM PST
Hope you'll fit in your traditional London gig some time this year. On the subject of London gigs Buddy Whittington and his band are playing at Boisdale in Canary Wharf on Saturday March 7th - get along there to see one of John Mayall's greatest ever guitarists.

jim sherman - Sat, Feb 7th, 2015 9:23 AM PST
Any shows around the Connecticut area?

FABIO SILVA - Sat, Feb 7th, 2015 7:20 AM PST

Gary Patterson - Fri, Feb 6th, 2015 3:13 PM PST
Ive been trying to get the piano chords to Marsha's mood, I have tried all the chord sites and can't seem to locate it. It's on the blues alone album.
Regards, Gary Patterson

veronica king - Thu, Feb 5th, 2015 5:45 PM PST
Can't wait to go my first concert. July 3 coach house in California

Maureen Burgio - Wed, Feb 4th, 2015 1:50 PM PST
Will you be coming to New York this year? We hope so! Love you guys!

Keith Davis - Tue, Feb 3rd, 2015 12:27 PM PST
Great memory's of John at the FAMINGO club Wardour st in early 60s.

Dear Samantha (Jan 27th) - Tue, Jan 27th, 2015 9:34 AM PST
Thank you for your question! John doesn't have a favorite album because he feels that they're all stories from different times, and so he couldn't pick one as the best. -

Samantha - Tue, Jan 27th, 2015 2:36 AM PST
P.S. I personally of course love all of his albums. But I often listen to A Hard Road and Blues From Laurel Canyon. A handful of my favs are on both. (-:

Samantha - Tue, Jan 27th, 2015 2:32 AM PST
I wonder— does John have a favorite album from his own discography or not?

James Hobson - Sat, Jan 17th, 2015 8:02 PM PST
Dear Friend: What would be the best way to go about finding out if anyone is looking for a keyboard player and getting an audition?

Dear David (17th Jan) - Sat, Jan 17th, 2015 2:55 PM PST
We can say that there will be more harmonicas for sale at some point, but we can't say when that will be. John uses his harmonica's well before he retires them, so it might be a while. -

David Baskett - Sat, Jan 17th, 2015 3:02 AM PST
Will there be any further harmonicas for sale in the future.

Bob Jones - Sat, Jan 17th, 2015 12:20 AM PST
Just rediscovered the album Laurel Canyon having lost many years ago the original bought in 1968. Would love to get hold of a transcript/score for the piano piece Laurel Canyon Home. I play basic blues piano and the slow blues piano on that track is still incredible almost 50 years on. Can anyone help please? For anyone wanting to hear A great album suggest this is one to visit.

Dear James (6th Jan) - Mon, Jan 12th, 2015 12:21 PM PST
Thank you for your question! John doesn't have his own record label, but we wish you luck with your music. -

david caldwell - Sat, Jan 10th, 2015 6:10 PM PST
Hi Mark,
Its presumptuous of me to respond to this because I know its not a blog - but for what its worth you should not restrict yourself to 3 albums but you should start at more or less the beginning with Crusade,the Beano album and A Hard Road. That will then lead you on to the next 3 which are outstanding. ie Bare Wires,Blues From Laurel Canyon and Turning Point. By then you will just want to keep going with the next 3 which are USA Union, Jazz Blues Fusion and Moving On.
you will definitely find that each group of 3 will sort of force you to want to go on to the next group of 3!
Just my humble opinion!

James Hobson - Tue, Jan 6th, 2015 2:13 PM PST
Thank You for responding to my inquiry. Is there any advice Sir John might have for somebody who is trying to enter into the misic-making business? Also, would Sir John happen to have his own recording label (such as Apple) and, if so, how much would it cost to be permitted an audition?

Mark - Tue, Jan 6th, 2015 12:43 PM PST
I want to listen to some of John's music but have none in my collection. Top 3 albums to buy/download?

Dear James (5th Jan) - Tue, Jan 6th, 2015 11:32 AM PST
We're sorry to say that John does not give guitar lessons. It would be hard to see how he could fit that into his very busy schedule! -

James Hobson - Mon, Jan 5th, 2015 11:51 AM PST
I am just curious to know if Sir Mayall ever gives guitar lessons? And, if yes, what are the prices? Thank You!

David Caldwell - Sun, Jan 4th, 2015 10:07 PM PST
Just wondering if you are going to be able to squeeze Melbourne in -in April? Enjoyed seeing you last time when Peter Green was on the same tour circuit.

Markus Rudin - Wed, Dec 31st, 2014 1:10 PM PST
Happy new Yaer Mr. Mayall

Sue Haslam - Mon, Dec 29th, 2014 4:44 PM PST
Please don't forget to come to England. We're still talking about the Guildford and London gigs and they were the highlight of our year!Have a great 2015.
Much love from Sue and Jack xx

Daphne Roberts - Wed, Dec 24th, 2014 6:25 AM PST

Vincenzo Bitonto - Mon, Dec 15th, 2014 8:10 AM PST
I thank you John for all the fantastic BLUES you have given us in nearly 60 years, people like you must live forever. God bless you. From 1987 there is no day I don't listen to your BLUES (I'm 43). Happy Holydays!

david dupont - Fri, Dec 12th, 2014 6:05 PM PST
Happy Holidays John (and Band). A "crispy" live recording from the Flying Monkey in NH, USA was bestowed on me recently and my goodness you are playing so well. I hope you add a few USA dates on your busy 2015 gallivanting about the globe. Peace.

Dear Julian (10th December) - Thu, Dec 11th, 2014 12:22 PM PST
We're not sure which country you're looking in, but we found "Empty Rooms" on Amazon in the US and the UK. We hope that helps! -

Dear Sam (5th December) - Wed, Dec 10th, 2014 1:01 PM PST
Thank you for your question. We agree that John has some amazing guitars, and yes he has designed all of them since 1964! -

Julian Ouzts - Wed, Dec 10th, 2014 12:54 PM PST
Having time finding Empty Rooms on CD.Any help please?

Harrell Gillis - Wed, Dec 10th, 2014 12:25 PM PST
Hey john, this is your ol' buddy Harrell (from the Washington, DC area-I first attended a concert of yours in Heidelberg in 1969), wishing you a belated Happy Birthday! Hope your tour is going well; can hardly wait for you to return to another US touring schedule. Love the new work! hg

Dear Jonathan (5th December) - Mon, Dec 8th, 2014 11:24 AM PST
Thank you so much for getting back with that info! We are going to post the facts you've given us on that guitar on the FAQ's page as people have been asking about it. We appreciate you sharing it with us! -

GENTIL,H.J. from Berlin Germany - Sun, Dec 7th, 2014 5:06 PM PST
Hi - hope you will plan your turning point for coming back on stage in BERLIN/GERMANY as soon as possible for a fine gig.Congratulations and all best wishes; blow it now into the air by bluesharp.

Hans Joachim Gentil from Berlin - Germany - Sun, Dec 7th, 2014 4:42 PM PST
Hi Mr.John Mayall - nowadays I am 61 years old man and from 1969 until today I like your kind of blues.Best wishes to you and all people in the U.K.-

Sam - Fri, Dec 5th, 2014 8:04 PM PST
I am late, but I still would like to wish you a happy birthday, John! I'm falling more and more in love with your music. I really hope you could come out to New York someday. I was wondering if you've ever designed any of your guitars? They are really amazing.

Jonathan Woolrich - Fri, Dec 5th, 2014 8:36 AM PST
Ref -Dear Jonathan (24th November) - Wed, Nov 26th, 2014 11:40 AM PST
Thank you for your (nerdy) question! We've actually had a lot of people asking about that guitar. You're correct, it's a Gibson ES-125, a 3/4 scale guitar. We'll need to check with John on the pickup and get back to you. -

Found a pic from Bolton. This was meant to be a (cheap) student model. ES125T is the thinline. Has a soapbar pickup and John Mayall graphics round the edge. I'm not sad enough to try and look up the year.

Happy Birthday John.

Marie-Do MINNE; - Thu, Dec 4th, 2014 4:13 PM PST
Hi John,
