dear John Mayall, We all know your wonderful achievements. We all appreciate that much. You gave so many deep and warm feelings to many of us, women, men and children. And we all stand up with a strong will to support you and your healthy life by sending you the same soulful and thoughtful vibrations you delivered since so long.
It’s a lifelong relationship regardless to whatever ups and downs. The Blues heals and postpones all misery and will continue to do so in a way no other art can do. A loudly singing voice, bearing lots of luck, pain, love, devotion and hope – a guitar answering to the endless questions of love and life, a bass guiding the road through the darkness and drums which point out to never stop looking for a solution and for good – and the supportingly breathing lungs wind the air of a strong body through the vibrating tongues of a harp, the full bunch of resonances of a sax or a trumpet – it’s heaven to perceive it and be a part of the strong but devoted power which never ask for rule. Just understanding the miracle of life, tasting the bitter-sweet fruit of eternity and, if possible, feel the love of others, giving love to them – that is what your music stands for.
Recover soon to full health, please, and later treat your valuable resources with care. You gave more than a man can do – the stage and a band behind you is a huge part of your life and we all will be happy to share this wonderful experience over and over again with you. But if sunshine, flowers and relaxation in a springlike garden help to fight devil’s tricks take advantage of them. Take good care of all your power, big hugs! And many greetings to the band who supports you so wonderfully – our souls are singing: long live the Blues!
