John Lee Hooker

1917 - 2001

Origin: United States

Genre: Blues

Hailing from the cradle of Delta blues, Mississippi, John Lee Hooker developed his own free form style and raw sound, playing the electric guitar like a percussive instrument, half-singing, half-speaking lyrics as he spontaneously "wrote" them and pounding his foot all the while to keep the rhythm rolling. The blues legend recorded more than 100 albums during a career that spans half a century.
