Howlin Wolf Silenced [VIDEO]

January 10th 1976 Howlin Wolf dies following brain surgery.

Little Chester Burnett grew up picking cotton in Mississippi. After a chance meeting with Charlie Patton, he taught himself blues guitar,  and eventually formed one of the first “electric bands” in the South. Ike Turner (of Ike & Tina fame) discovered Chester and encouraged him to record for Sam Phillips at Sun Records in Memphis. Sam recorded his tracks, and leased them to Leonard Chess of Chess Records in Chicago. Chester ( Howlin Wolf) recorded “Little Red Rooster” (later recorded by the Rolling Stones), “Spoonful” ( recorded by Cream), “Back Door Man” (on the first Doors album), and “How Many More Times” ( a staple of Led Zepplin’s playlist) to name a few. His fans included many greats in R&R such as Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood,  Ringo, and more.
