Speaking at Planet Rockstock last December, Walter Trout heaped praise on his former John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers band mate.
“To this day I am star struck by John Mayall,” Walter told Paul Anthony. “He’s like a father to me, I played with him for five years, I toured the world with him, I made three albums with him, he’s appeared on four of my albums. I’m still in awe of the guy, of his accomplishments, his genius; he’s a musical genius and he’s I think underappreciated.
“If anybody should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame it’s him. Look who he started off – people always go Mick Taylor, Peter Green, Eric Clapton. (There’s) other guys they’re not even aware of, Simon Kirke and Andy Fraser from Free started with John Mayall.
“There’s just this amazing list of people that he has nurtured and taught and, y’know, I would say I’ve been at this for 50 years and the most fun I ever had at it was playing in his band.”
