Tribute to John Lee Hooker
The Gov' April 2008
Known to many as simply "The Boogie Man", the late, great John Lee Hooker is considered by most to be the 'coolest' singer and musician ever to play the blues. In a career that spanned 70 years, Hooker redefined the blues form with his hard-driving, earthy and minimalistic style on songs such as "Boom Boom", "Boogie Chillen", "The Healer" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch & One Beer".
For one special night, some of Adelaide's finest blues musicians joined together to pay tribute to the great bluesman. The lineup included:
Sweet Baby James & Rob Eyers
David Blight (from 'Cold Chisel')
Nick Kipridis (from 'The Streamliners')
Jack Mouhalou (from 'Smokin' With Joe' & 'The Lounge Lizards')
