By the time this picture was taken, The Howlin' Wolf was already a living legend. Having pioneered Chicago Blues, his song spawned Rock n Roll -- the biggest bands in the world idolized the big bad Wolf.
But this night back in 1974, Chester "Howlin' Wolf" Burnett was just another bluesman rockin' a club called Joe's Place in Massachusetts. His band that night was Eddie Shaw on sax, Hubert Sumlin on guitar, and a couple of colorful musicians named Detroit Junior and Chicken House Shorty on keyboard and bass. Little more than a year later, Wolf's failing health declined and he passed away following surgery.
