John Lee Hooker: Boom Boom

Like a lot of Americans, Kevin and I spent Memorial Day weekend outside doing yard work. And when you're digging a bunch of four foot post holes and moving dirt from one end of the yard to the other, there's nothing like some good, tough blues to keep you going. So we blasted John Lee Hooker most of Monday. Check out this video of Boom Boom I found on YouTube. I've never seen footage of his guitar playing, and it's pretty darn cool to watch him break it down.

who can do a whole blues album with just a kick drum? JLH could. so underrated and unique.
