Remembering Hubert Sumlin (Nov. 16, 1931 - Dec. 4, 2011)

Today, I will break with my own assertions and be The R.I.P. Blog. Must post a few clips of innovative blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin, responsible for musical genius both on stage and in the recording studio over six decades. He is best known for his stinging solos on numerous 1950's and 1960's Chess Records sides waxed by the great Howlin' Wolf.

Hubert Sumlin's guitar work has been much mimicked, frequently out-and-out plagiarized, but never equalled.
