John Mayall Biography - Cultivating Talent
Hailing from Macclesfield, near Manchester, this celebrated six-stringer was born with music flowing through his veins. He taught himself to play piano, guitars and the harmonica before spending three years in national service. Yet still the determined axeman continued to pursue music, purchasing his first electric guitar whilst on leave. After returning to commence a career in art design, Mayall was persuaded by blues sensation Alexis Korner to embark on music instead.
After a succession of bands, he began playing as part of the Bluesbreakers in 1963. Two years later Eric Clapton would join as guitarist, bringing the band further success after their breakthrough album, Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton, hit Number 6 on the UK chart. The band's easy attitude towards experimentation and jamming saw the aspiring talents of Peter Green and Mick Taylor join their ranks, leaving to form their own successful bands later on. Realising that he had made his biggest contributions to the UK scene, John moved to the US in the early '70s to continue his work there.
Having since received an OBE, John now continues his work as a solo artist, with the freedom to choose who he plays alongside. Discover his endless talents by purchasing John Mayall tickets securely online at StubHub, where your gigging experience is protected by our FanProtect Guarantee.
