Legendary Texas Guitarist Rocky Athas and Blues Icon John Mayall End.
As some of you may have heard, John Mayall announced today that effective immediately he is reducing his performance format to a trio to become his own guitar player. We had a discussion and a meeting of the minds. John told me that as he approaches 83 years of age this is something he has always wanted to pursue and I support his decision. I have accomplished all that I could as his last guitarist and he wants to finish his career playing guitar for himself in a trio. I want everyone to wish him well and know that even though I will not be touring with John any longer that we remain musician brothers at heart. For me, this is the perfect ending to a great run. Onward & Upward! I look forward to the next chapter of rockin' the blues MY way like the songs from The Essential Rocky Athas - Volume I below. Turn it up & enjoy a taste of authentic Texas music!
Although his decision was unexpected, I welcome the opportunity to move forward and continue making music Texas Style with your help. Please "share" my music with your friends and I hope to see you in your city soon!
