Mick Taylor, Mitch Mitchell, Terry Reid, Colin Allen Celebrate 40 Yrs of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in Concert May 2008

Imagine you could create your ultimate super group and put them all together for a one of live show: Who would they be ?

Well check this out for a foursome:

1. Mick Taylor on guitar: replaced peter Green in the band that was the engine room of the british Blues Explosion, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Went on to join the Stones on John Mayall’s recommendation and did many brilliant solo albums

2. Mitch Mitchell on drums: jazz-infused drummer of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, one of the first to demonstrate how a drummer can improvise like anyone else in rock.

3. Terry ‘Superlungs’Reid on vocals: A cult figure who turned down (that’s right) invitations to join both Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple.

4. Colin Allen (also on drums, not sure how this will work): played with John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson,Memphis SlimSolomon Burke, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Mick Taylor, Focus, Donovan, Bob Dylan, Stone The Crows, Georgie Fame, Rod Stewart , what a list

They are playing together this year, the 40th anniversary of the Bluesbreakers' first US tour, as part of the London Guitar Festival Monday May 5 730 Queen Elisabeth Hall
