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!
