    Chester Arthur Burnett born 1910, White Station Mississippi. 6' 6" of raw power, a man that could rock the joint to it's foundations. He became a cornerstone of the Chicago Blues Scene in the 50's, and an icon in the music industry. My favourite Blues Legend.

    I agree! Howlin' Wolf was already a legend by the time the British Invasion broke! And the "London Howlin' Wolf Sessions" is an album that does a great job of showcasing his talents.

    ^^^ Agreed I have the London Sessions on vinyl and disc just a fantastic sample of the Wolf mixing it with the UK's top musos and the man gives Eric a lesson in how it's done much to the joy of Clapton.

    Howlin' Wolf fell under the influence of Charlie Patton at the Dockery Plantation. Charlie was one of the early blues stars and Wolf was a big fan.
