John Mayall was, as a child, influenced by such greats as Leadbelly, Albert Ammons, Pinetop Smith, and Eddie Lang. From the age of 13 he taught himself to play and develop his own style with the aid of a neighbour's piano, borrowed guitars, and secondhand harmonicas. John met his soulmate in Eric Clapton, who had quit the Yardbirds in favour of playing the blues. This historic union culminated in the first hit album for John’s band, the Bluesbreakers, and resulted in worldwide legendary status. A succession of great musicians defined their artistic roots under John's leadership, and he became well known for discovering new talent. As sidemen left to form their own groups, others took their places. Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood became Fleetwood Mac. Andy Fraser formed Free, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. As Eric Clapton has stated, "John Mayall has actually run an incredibly great school for musicians."

This has evolved into a powerful and disciplined twelve-piece band, capable of selling out hundreds of shows a year all over Britain and Europe.

We suppose you all wonder what do our Panto stars do between each serving of the annual rubbish. Just what to do? Suzy and David tend to while away the nine months, lolling around their Bloomsbury and Kensington apartments in diaphenous silk downs, drinking vintage champagne and asking what is my part going to be like in this year's Panto. David no longer certain he will play a man and Suzy no longer certain she will play a girl of 16. David and Suzy will share some of their favourite poems (not by Berwick Kaler), play readings (not by Berwick Kaler), the odd song (not by Berwick Kaler) and some gags (possibly by Berwick Kaler but most likely by Martin Barass) as they simply wait... Yes wait for the next Panto to start and for life yet again to take on some meaning.
