“It Serves Me Right to Suffer” by John Lee Hooker (1966)

22 11 2008

Most musicians I’ve known have an innate reverence for the blues.  And many, like me, have a “favorite” bluesman.  Mine is John Lee Hooker.  The music just flows through the man, like a swollen river, the mighty Mississip’ boiling through America.

Here’s the thing about blues:  it’s a fairly simple form of music.  The meat of blues is the sincerity, the feeling, the authenticity.  You will hear a lot of blues played by local musicians, for example, and I’m pretty sure that they all know of, and truly respect, Mr. John Lee Hooker.
