Σαν σήμερα, 10 Ιουνίου 1910, στο White Station του Mississippi γεννήθηκε ο Chester Arthur Burnett, γνωστός ως Howlin’ Wolf, τραγουδιστής, κιθαρίστας, αρμονικίστας και συνθέτης, ένας από τους μεγαλύτερους bluesmen όλων των εποχών. Μετά από ιδιαίτερα περιπετειώδη εφηβικά και νεανικά χρόνια, έχοντας ήδη καθιερωθεί ως φυσιογνωμία των blues του νότου, ο HW θα ανέβαινε στο Σικάγο στα early ’50s κυριαρχώντας στη σκηνή της πόλης με μοναδικό “αντίπαλο” τον Muddy Waters.
Και οι δύο θα οφελούνταν τα μέγιστα από το blues revival των ’50s και των ’60s και την υιοθέτηση της μαύρης κουλτούρας από το λευκό ακροατήριο.
Τα περισσότερα τραγούδια του, όπως και του M. Waters, είναι συνθέσεις του Willie Dixon.Κάποια ωστόσο πολύ σημαντικά [σ’ αυτό το podcast: “Killing Floor”, “The Big House”, “Tired Of Crying”…] είναι δικά του.

On this date, June 10, 1910, in White Station, Mississippi, Chester Arthur Burnett,better known as Howlin’ Wolf, was born. Singer, guitarist, harmonica player and composer, one of the greatest bluesmen of all time. After particularly adventurous teenage and young years, having having already established a name of the blues scene, HW would move up to Chicago in the early ’50s, dominating the city, with Muddy Waters as his only rival.
Both of them would be extremely benefited from the blues revival of the ’50s and 60s, and the adaption of the black culture by the white audience.
Most of Wolf’s songs, like the ones of M. Waters’, are written by Willie Dixon. Some, however, very important [in this podcast: “Killing Floor”, “The Big House”, “Tired Of Crying”…] are songs of his own.
