Howlin’ Wolf (Chester Burnett), was a blues singer, guitarist, and harmonica player with a booming voice. He is probably the best known blues artist of all time.
His songs “Smokestack Lightnin'”, “Killing Floor” and “Spoonful”, have become blues and blues rock standards.
Music critic Cub Koda noted, “no one could match Howlin’ Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits.” Producer Sam Phillips recalled, “When I heard Howlin’ Wolf, I said, ‘This is for me. This is where the soul of man never dies'”.
