The music scene in 1965 London must have been a mind-blowing thing to witness. That’s when Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Steve Winwood began to discover the blues of American greats like John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Buddy Guy and the like. John Mayall, with his vicious multi-instrumentalist talents and ear for the blues, was at the head of the pack. Just listen to the classic album John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton and be transported back to a bloody good musical epoch. At almost 80 years of age, Mayall continues to rock the stage, backed up by decades of experience. He plays Friday, Oct. 26, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. $30—$35. 8pm. 707.259.0123.
