legend Hubert Sumlin passed on December 4 at age 80. While he fronted
his own groups and worked with others in Chicago, he is best known as
the guitar "voice" on Howlin' Wolf's records and live shows. There was
nothing standard or conventional about anything he played. He is
instantly recognizable and endlessly inventive. His guitar is like a
voice print. Check out the classic Chess recordings and be amazed. Rest
in Peace, Mr. Sumlin.
