"Boom Boom Boom Boom" and More | John Lee Hooker | Mississippi Delta Blues #Music

Recorded long before he did the same song in "The Blues Brothers" and so far back he called the songs 'numbers.'  In this session, he has time to talk to you in-between the songs and you will know the wisdom as only a real bluesman can bring it.

"Boom Boom Boom Boom" is one of the greatest grooves ever but it's not a virtuoso type of performance and the Rockhouse is glad of that since we see the drive toward virtuoso performance makes music antiseptic and unapproachable.  With John Lee, it feels like I could go up to talk to him after the set.

I suspect his speaking voice and delivery will remind you of someone.  Maybe try Morgan Freeman for a fit.

"Nothing else in the world I want to do but this.  Thank you." - John Lee Hooker
