Apparently John Mayall has pneumonia and has cancelled his North American tour. My buddies just saw him close out the New Orleans JazzFest at the beginning of the month. Best wishes for him, he's 84 or 85 years old.

    oh, that's not encouraging news.

    Agreed. It made me spin The Turning Point last night. Pneumonia is not for sissies, especially at his age. Hoping for the best outcome.

    Willie Nelson left the Outlaw Country festival the other night he was the headliner, and ended up not being able to perform. These guys want to keep us fans happy and still tour. Both John Mayall and Willie Nelson have new releases which are both great, they both should hang it up with the tours, this fan of both is happy enough getting good new material out of them. Here is hoping for a speedy recovery for both of them.
