Late Night Music Club With John Lee Hooker

John Lee Hooker (1917-2001) was one of the great bluesmen of our times and his impact on rock'n'roll was immense. (His songs were covered by Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, The Doors, The Animals and doznes of other artists.) He grew up in Mississippi ran off to Memphis and then Detroit as a teenager, got a job at a Ford Motors plant and was past 30 when he started recording. He was an early inductee into the Rock'n'roll Hall of Fame and the year before he died he was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. "Dimples" is typical of his style and today's LNMC special.
