Songwriter: Howlin' Wolf

I love the blues, it’s my favorite genre, since I was 17 I’ve been completely immersed in all facets of it. This was one of the first blues songs I heard and it’s still my favorite, this is the type of blues I really like, if I could listen to only three blues musicians for the rest of my life they would definitely be:

1. Howlin Wolf
2. Albert King
3. Stevie Ray Vaughan

There a lot of other but if I had to pick three it would be them.

The reason I love those three the most is because their blues has a mean flavor to it, just purely sad blues isn’t as enjoyable to me. If you read this far, leave me a reply telling me your favorite blues musicians.
