He's so damn raw. Whenever i try to play his stuff, all i do is listen to the song to get the feel and then improvise. And he is the king of talkin blues.

JLH used to be my favorite blues man, my favorite is Boogie Chillun, great song

The DVD of him is good too, I think it's just called John Lee Hooker?

He was an amazing dude, pretty much the last free-form bluesman. I would play his songs but I just don't have the groove to use 1 chord for a whole song and sing out of time without sounding ****e. He does it better than anyone.

My favorite songs are Bad Like Jesse James or Crawling King Snake.

And I like how a lot of people think he's blind becuse he used to wear glases all the time, his daughter (I think) says on that DVD that he always wore them because he would often cry when playing his songs.

A cool thing I read somewhere was that soeone asked him to engrave their guitar as like an autograph, to which he replied "I don't scratch no guitars, man."

Amazing guy, amazing legacy. I think he'll certainly rank as one of the best bluesmen EVER forever.

he was a real cool cat too. a sax playin friend of mine told me a story about how he, JLH, and some other cats went to a Denny's down in LA and they wouldn't serve em on account of them bein black. my friend was gettin real hot in there but JLH said "nah man, it's cool, let's go to a bar" and they all got real drunk. the end

my pops went to a show of his one time. it was supposed to be a 2 hour somethin set by him. but JLH went through 5 hours of his stuff! they jammed on tracks for 10 minutes at a time too. my pops said that they had to change drummers 3 times during the show.

and that is why mr. lucky is my hero.

John Lee Hooker was probably my first discovered original blues man. People always say my playing sounds alot like his and thats a huge compliment to me, but anywayz I was at Borders one day and I found an albumn called "Hooker and the Heat", its a live albumn with Canned Heat playing the first set then like half way through they introduce Mr. Johny Lee himself and they just jam the FOOK out. If you guys like Hooker this is a must hear albumn!!!!

A lot of times, he's playing acoustic. A lot of other times, he's playing electric. It's more difficult to tell on the earlier albums, especially the ones he did in the late 40's.

But for a stark contrast of similar era Hooker, look up the album Burnin Hell. All acoustic. That's a 1964 album. If you look at "That's Where it's At!", a 1969 album, you can hear the difference between the electric and acoustic.

Unless I'm completely wrong.

08-28-2009, 05:46 PM
Ah, I got a cheapo album in HMV - Essential John Lee Hooker or something. I'm pretty sure it's him, but it contains "Bang Bang Bang Bang". A song which is just Boom Boom, but with a less defined riff?

Anyway, I love him - about the only old blues-man I can get into at the moment. And yeah, he just exudes that old blues cool.

What about his stuff with Santana? It has a tendency to descend into repeated lyrics, which works with his solo stuff, but clashes with the elaborate orchestra and crazy Santana-lead :/ Still great though.

i agree with this.. his style is pretty hard to get sounding good with a band because he doesn't always change in the right place, and sometimes has a 12 bar melody over just the I chord. Stuff like that makes it hard to fit in with a band, plus it just sounds better solo imo

I'm glad I'm not the only person that feels that way. :haha

I have the John Lee Hooker box set, and it has a few songs with Bonnie Raitt and Santana, and I always skip those. :o

Sometimes i get the impression he had a band lumped on him by some producer in a record label tbh. A lot of the times the band is way to loud and you can't hear his guitar playing properly :(

I imagine that's exactly what happened..

Hey guys,
Here is a littel JLH trivia. For the first years(as far as I know at least) of his carrer he didn't go beyond the 5th fret of his guitar. He was able to do more with those five frets than more people can with the entire fretboard.
I simply love that guy to pieces.

JLH cut his first record in 1948 - here's one from the same year

It's in Bb, and goes well beyond the 5th fret of the guitar. I see what you're trying to say, but it doesn't really serve anyone if you just flat out make stuff up..

To avoid any future flames - I want to redeem myself.
I read it in a album booklet and silly little me thought it was true. So really - just have a coke and a smile, okay ;)

I don't say I was flamed - it was just to make sure I wasn't open for future flamers. A whole unrelated topic: Stop poking me :D

To start off, find a compilation like the best of john lee hooker or something. I dont know what his comilations are, but to me, thats the best way to start off with people from before 1960.

I got his box set. If you can find it for a good price, that's a great starting point. It's plenty of music.

I grew up listening to John Lee

Amazing artist with such an emotion in his playing and singing!
