John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers was an English blues rock band, led by singer, songwriter, and t John Mayall, OBE. While never producing a radio-friendly hit on their own, the Bluesbreakers' greatest legacy is as an incubator for British rock and blues musicians.
John Mayall, OBE (born 29 November 1933) is an English blues singer, guitarist, organist and songwriter, whose musical career spans over sixty years. In the 1960s, he was the founder of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, a band which has counted among its members some of the most famous blues and blues rock musicians.
John Mayall was already an established player on the British blues scene. Clapton had joined him a year earlier to find purist heaven, first by devouring Mayall’s unrivalled collection of blues albums and then by turning up his guitar and developing the coruscating style that had people scrawling ‘Clapton Is God’ on walls around London. Producer Vernon believes that Mayall never bettered that album. The energy that was created by that band when Eric was with them was special, he told writer John Pidgeon. We captured it on that one record. The chemistry was right. Bluesbreakers was the first blues album to chart in the UK, reaching N. in the summer of 1966. By then Clapton had already left to form Cream. Things were moving fast.

John Mayall today (Photo by David Gomez). There are certain names that are synonymous with the British blues boom of the 1960s. We’ve all heard of the bands that brought the music to the forefront-the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, the Animals, et. but before any of those fellows even got started there were dedicated blues musicians slogging it out in the clubs for anyone who’d listen. Some of them-Alexis Korner, Cyril Davies, Graham Bond-were known primarily to devoted London audiences and those who later studied the roots of the music. And then there’s John Mayall.
