I’ve got the blues: John Lee Hooker

We all know how much I love listening to the blues. Far and away my favorite music genre, it must be growing up in Chicago and listening to all my parents Hound Dog Taylor albums. I thought I’d share a little of one of my favorite bluesmen, John Lee Hooker. A singer-songwriter and guitarist, he rose to prominence performing his own unique style of what was originally closest to the Delta Blues. He is thought of as creating his own unique genre of the blues, often incorporating the boogie-woogie piano style and a driving rhythm into his wicked blues guitar and singing. Here is one of my favorites: John Lee Hooker’s rendition of “One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer.” Enjoy.
