The Godfather of the British Blues, John Mayall, has returned to Hawaii for a three-island tour that began Wednesday on Maui. It continues this evening at the Palace in Hilo, then Saturday at the Honoka`a People's Theatre, before wrapping up Sunday at the Blue Note Hawaii in Waikiki. It's hard to overstate his influence in reshaping the blues for a new generation, while  helping forge critical relationships in the rock world. He took time to speak with HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence about his life.
