Howlin' Wolf

There's no mistakin about how Howlin' Wolf got his name. Not the greatest harp player, but no reason to complain either. And backed by one of my favorite blues guitar players, Hubert Sumlin!

Howlin' Wolf was a real performer that paved the way for many of today's rock stars to make themselves look like buffoons. Wolf would get down on his knees on stage, crawl all over, and sometimes lick his guitar. He was a madman, and was received with shock and awe when he first started to do his stage antics. Iggy Pop oughta pay some dues.
