Hubert Sumlin died while I was away this week, but I’d still like to mark his passing. I was fortunate enough to catch Sumlin perform at this year’s Kitchener Blues Fest (read about it here), and I am glad I was able to see such a monumental and influential figure in the development of Blues and Rock music before it was too late. Check out Sumlin’s razor sharp guitar lines in Howlin’ Wolf’s “Wang Dang Doodle” below. Rest in Peace.
