John Mayall Readies 80th Birthday Album

 
John Mayall
John Mayall is one of the hardest working blues musicians out there. Right now he’s in the middle of a European tour where he will be doing 59 shows in only 64 days (source: Music-News.com). That is pretty impressive by anyone’s standard, but even more so when you consider the fact that Mayall just turned 80 years old.

To celebrate this milestone in his career, Mayall is getting ready to release his first studio album in five years. The aptly titled A Special Life will be released on May 19 through Forty Below Records. Mayall did the recording in Los Angeles with producer Eric Come.

Mayall’s longtime band featuring guitarist Rocky Athas, bassist Greg Rzab, and drummer Jay Davenport, all play on the album, with Rzab and Athas even contributing an original song. Mayall himself wrote three new songs for the project, which also contains covers by the likes of Albert King and Jimmy Rogers.
