John Mayall: Nobody Told Me Review

Fifty-three years after releasing his first album with the Bluesbreakers, John Mayall is back with his latest studio album Nobody Told Me, a 10-track collection released in late February that sounds as fresh and energetic as any of the albums he’s recorded in the last half-century. It’s the fourth album Mayall has recorded while signed to Forty Below Records and the second he’s released since his induction into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2016. In other words, 85-year-old Mayall’s hectic album release schedule makes that of many artists half his age look like they’re spinning in circles.

“The album title comes from the song Tailwind,” says Shepherd. “We’re all travelling together through this thing called life. These are testing times for us as a society, and it seems to me that it’s been a bit crazy in the world lately, with so much division.

Five Finger Death Punch has teamed up with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brantley Gilbert, and Brian May to release a special version of the Shepherd original “Blue on Black.” All proceeds from the single will go to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which honors veterans, America’s defenders, first responders, their families, and those in need.

“When Five Finger Death Punch approached me about teaming up with them to do a special version of ‘Blue On Black’, I was thrilled to do it,” said Shepherd. “When they told me Brantley Gilbert and Brian May were also going to be part of it, I was honored. This is a powerful collaboration of rock, country and blues artists and a true testament to the commonalities these musical styles share, and I think the fans will appreciate and enjoy it as much as we do.”

Gary Hoey: Neon Highway Blues Review

It’s been nearly a month since Gary Hoey released his 21st album Neon Highway Blues on Provogue Records and the album is still holding steady on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums Chart.
