Well he would be if he was still alive. Go on, break out your favourite Howling Wolf and play it as loud as the neighbours can stand.

Smokestack Lightning !

I have heard that, when Howling Wolf was dying in a hospital in Chicago and on a dialysis machine, the Rolling Stones were in Chicago at the same time but did not call in to visit him

Any truth in this ?

Haven't heard that one before. There may be something about it in Moanin' at Midnight: The Life and Times of Howlin' Wolf by James Segrest and Mark Hoffman.

I was just with a relative who died after being removed from the dyalisis machine.

The last thing she would've wanted was a visit from the Rolling Stones.

Sat with Howling Wolf in a room underneath underneath Milwaukee County Stadium during a rock festival in 1968 or 1969 -- wish I had recorded our conversation. Have some pictures of him that day -- slides I haven't looked at in years. Really should dig them out. I got into some of the damnedest places because I had a Pentax with a fairly long lens -- everyone thought I was press.

Hey, Big Guy, you be da man...

I gotta a Howlin' Wolf pin I wear on my hat... It's of a postage stamp that was released some time ago with him in... Been to the Howlin' Wolf Museum in West Point, Mississippi... Might of fact, sold some CD's outta there...

Howlin' Wolf was in calss by himself... Nobody, absolutely nobody can touch him...

I'd close up the Old Town Folklore Center, where I worked, about eleven PMW and head over to hear Wolf at Big Johns on Wells St. in Chicago's Old Town area -- 1965-'66. He was simply a wonder. Half way into a song, he'd lay on the stage and go into a sort of trance playing harmonica while the band wailed standing over him. If it was possible for a fellow to dance lying down, he surely did do that. I think that was every Tuesday. Mondays it was Muddy Waters. Wednesday Little Walter was there. Thursday at the time I'm thinking it was old friend Mike Bloomfield's band with Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite. Either them or Siegel-Schwall, or Ira Kamin.

A year later it would be Butterfield and Bloomfield--or another of the white kids bands that were working into the mix.

It was a fine/era to recall.

I once heard Tony Bennett on a call-in radio show, answering questions from the callers. It must have been 20+ years ago.

Someone mentioned Howlin' Wolf and Tony thought it was the name of a punk rock group and started ranting about how terrible "they" were.

If this thread is going to slip off the list let's at least let the Wolf have the last word.

When I first moved to Chicago some friends talked me into going to hear some guy play blues in some church basement in Evanston (contiguous suburb).

yes, it was Howlin' Wolf

I'be been a fan of Chicago Blues ever since.

Had trouble with the white boy stuff.sometimes it sounds like a parody.

and Art, I remember the one-handed pianist at Quiet Knight, where I was given to understand he was the janitor. Complete aside.
