British Blues Legend John Mayall To Get Tough On 57th Studio Album In September

On September 15, 2009, legendary blues master John Mayall, through Eagle Records will release a brand new studio album 'Tough'.

On his self-produced 57th studio album to date Mayall once again proves why he is known as "The Godfather of British Blues."

Taking on multiple instruments (piano, organ, six and twelve string guitar, and harmonica, along with his signature vocals) Mayall is backed by his touring band–guitar phenomenon Rocky Athas, bassist Greg Rzab, drummer Jay Davenport, and organist/pianist Tom Canning.

76 years young, Mayall has spent 44 years cultivating his brand of blues and has helped launch the careers of some of the greatest contemporary blues musicians, including Eric Clapton, Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Peter Green, as well as guitarists Walter Trout and Coco Montoya. He has enjoyed many deserved accolades for his extraordinary contributions to blues music, including an honor from the Queen of England herself. In 2005, she named him an officer of the Order of the British Empire. He accepted this prestigious honor alongside Brian May (Queen) and Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin).
