Howlin' Wolf (Chester Burnett) died today in Chicago 1976. Wolf stood 6'4", 300 lbs, intimidating as hell as he looked down at you from the stage! He worked with Robert Johnson (THAT Robert Johnson), Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy and all of the Chess Records legends. Wolf's Mother: "You play The Devil's music." But Wolf was a really smart guy, as he didn't died broke like almost every other Black Blues Legend did. Wolf managed his money and his career himself.
