Howlin' Wolf-- Chester Burnett-- is, undeniably, one of the greatest of the greats when it comes to the Blues. He wrote "Smokestack Lightning" 1956 and it was given a Grammy in 1999-- after being covered by the Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Clapton, The Who, The Animals, Lynryd Skynyrd, the Dead... Can you think of a song with a pedigree like that? I was lucky to have seen him play live about 10 years before he died and he was still an incredible and compelling performer.
