Hubert Sumlin, Guitarist for Howlin' Wolf, Dies at 80

Man, i LOVE listening to Howlin' Wolf but you can't talk about the Wolf without talkin' about Hubert Sumlin. Hubert and the Wolf we're one. Together, they were one potent force. Both such beautiful characters. Here's a clip of Hubert talkin' about his time with the Wolf and showin' off like he does best. Rest In Peace, Hubert.

Well crap.

Not the best news to start the day with.

Howlin Wolf's legacy would've been a lot different without Sumlin.
