John Bull is a national personification of the United Kingdom in general and England in particular, especially in political cartoons and similar graphic works. He is usually depicted as a stout, middle-aged, country-dwelling, jolly and matter-of-fact man. John Bull originated as a satirical character created by Dr John Arbuthnot, a friend of Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope.
Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton (. The Beano Album) is a 1966 blues/blues rock album recorded by John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton as part of the band. Clapton left to form Cream after this recording, though would team up again in 1971 for the double LP Back to the Roots.
John Bull is an imaginary figure who is a personification of England, similar to the American ‘Uncle Sam’. He is shown in cartoons and caricatures as a prosperous farmer of the 18th century. John Bull first appears as a character in a series of political satires by John Arbuthnot (1667-1735). Arbuthnot was a Scottish scientist, doctor and political satirist. During the Napoleonic Wars, John Bull became the national symbol of freedom, of loyalty to king and country, and of resistance to French aggression. He was the ordinary man in the street, who would fight Napoleon with his bare hands if necessary. By the 1800s he was seen as a more assertive figure in domestic politics as well, prepared to criticise the royal family and the government, giving those outside the traditional political process a voice.
John Bull - lead vocals/ harp, is a member of the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame. As a former riverboat captain he used to entertain guests on the riverboats in Montgomery, AL. John gave up the river for the road years ago but you can still catch him and his band most Sunday evenings on the Blues Cruise that he began running on his own riverboat almost almost thirty years ago in Montgomery. Danny Angel- guitar, played for many years in local and regional club bands until forming his own blues band in the late '90's
