I am so bummed that I wasn't at John Mayall's New York shows at The City Winery last night and tonight. I was supposed to be there and looking forward to taking pictures of him again. Every time I've seen him live he was amazing.
Check out the rest of his tour and if you're anywhere near where he's playing, GO AND SEE HIM! And tell him I say Hi! He's one of the great bluesmen. And responsible for the success of so many famous musicians. He may have turned 82 last December but when he's on stage he's rockin' closer to 30.
I shot this one a few years back at the Topanga festival...
Oh, and did I forget to mention he's one of the six artists in my first book, Starart? I took this photograph when we were working on the book. Great musician, great artist and we are so lucky he's not retiring any time soon.
