Yeah John Lee Hooker is dead ... but John Lee Hooker Jr. is probably who you are seeing. I never saw him but I have seen Kenny Wayne Shepherd at the B.B. King Blues Festival last year and it was incredible.

I've never heard of John Lee Hooker, Jr., but if he's anything close to his dad, he'll be great. KWS with Betts sounds like a good show, too.

I mean in Kyle's case, it is in the best interest of mankind that he impregnate anything that looks at him funny...

Hmm. Junior doesn't have the presence of his dad, but his voice/guitar is eerily similar. Sounds pretty cool, I'll check him out if he ever comes over here.
