The first article says that McVie has quit the band (with Flint ) That has to be wrong surely,given that Peter has just joined and it's dated 1966 ?(thanks for posting these articles Becca )

The article didn't actually say that John McVie quit, just that he and Hughie Flint had each "gone their own ways". According to Christopher Hjort's book Strange Brew, Mayall fired both Hughie Flint and McVie in early September 1966. McVie was back with the band around the end of September (seems he was fired and re-hired by Mayall more than once), and Aynsley Dunbar took over on drums about the same time. So that would date the interview with Mayall to sometime in September, which makes perfect sense for the October issue of the magazine. BTW, Hjort notes that Peter Green's debut with the Bluesbreakers was probably 22 July.

Thanks for the articles, becca!

You could look upon it as a suspension. There was an older tradition of band leaders to dock pay and suspend members for bad behaviour, Mayall might've been on that kind of a trip. Jack Bruce seemed to always be getting the sack from somebody or other. Peter actually came back once too after leaving for some recording date, that produced the B-side 'Jenny'. Jenny Boyd?

Aynsley was out and then came back after Mick Fleetwood's stint, then out again. Even Pete Frame would have trouble mapping it all out I'm sure.

Fascinating! I'd always assumed these Mc Vie "sackings for drunkeness" were sort of "You're drunk! You're fired! Get out of the van ! "-but when he had sobered up they all made up! Obviously it was more serious than that.

Also, I'm amazed at how scathing Mayall is about Clapton !

(I have a lot of my original Beat Instrumentals, but I dont think I started to get it untill 1968.)
