Happy birthday, Howlin’ Wolf

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

I was watching “Cadillac Records” just the other day (surprisingly it was a whole lot better than it had any right to be), and I got jonesin’ to hear the primordial blues growl of Howlin’ Wolf tearin’ up “Killing Floor.”

The man was a genius.

So here’s a toast to the late and truly great Chester Burnett, who would be celebrating his 99th birthday today.
