A Blues Hall of Fame member, Mayall, 87, was the first blues player to gain international acclaim as a rock star.
He has a long history of playing alongside talented guitarists. Eric Clapton was the original lead guitarist with the Bluesbreakers. Clapton left to start Cream and was replaced by Peter Green, who later started Fleetwood Mac. Then Mick Taylor joined the group before joining the Rolling Stones.
Mayall’s new guitarist in 2021 is 62-year-old Chicagoan Melvin Taylor, who has replaced Carolyn Wonderland.
