Hubert Sumlin Passes

Blues 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.
