Description

Howlin' Wolf, along with Muddy Waters, defined the Chicago sound of the Fifties and influenced generations of would be Rock stars in the process. Cream, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, The Doors, Little Feat, The Who, The Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and scores of other important acts have all covered Wolf's songs and come under his spell.
Whereas Muddy Waters filtered the Country Blues of Son House and Robert Johnson through his amplifier and into the ears of the world, Wolf built on the foundations laid down by the original architect of the Delta Blues; Charley Patton.
