Howlin Wolf Blues Backdoor Painting

Howlin’ Wolf (born Chester Arthur Burnett, June 10, 1910 – January 10, 1976) was a Chicago blues singer, guitarist, and harmonica player. Originally from Mississippi, he moved to Chicago in adulthood and became successful, forming a rivalry with fellow bluesman Muddy Waters.

A man bigger than his booming voice, the Wolf has a place in music history that is matched by a very select few – and his work with Hubert Sumlin remains one of the benchmarks for electric Blues.
