The weekly top 5 playlist – 7 March – John Lee Hooker

He was born near Mississippi and began his life as a sharecropper’s son and grew to become a symbol of all that embodies a traditional blues man. With an idiosyncratic and expressive musical style he invented Delta Blues and couldn’t have been bothered to let a silly thing like timing get in the way of his music. John Lee Hooker is an inspiration to us all. Here’s our top 5 John Lee Hooker playlist:

  1. John Lee Hooker – Boom Boom
  2. John Lee Hooker – Boogie Chillen’
  3. John Lee Hooker – One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
