John Mayall Addresses Lack Of Industry Accolades

(The Blues) John Mayall regrets the relative lack of industry success he's enjoyed through the release of over 50 albums in his career. And although he's not out looking for accolades, he'd be pleased to add them to his achievements.

The former Bluesbreakers leader, who shut the band down in 2008, is poised to launch new record A Special Life next week. He tells Grateful Web: "I wouldn't call it success, considering I've made over 50 original albums and I've never had a Grammy. I never had any chart success. My records haven't been recognised in the Hall Of Fame or anything like that - a lot of other people have."

But that's not to say he's on the hunt for awards. "It wouldn't complete it; it would add to it," says the 80-year-old. "We have a great fanbase. Everywhere we play we have a full house. You can't get much better than that." more on this story
