Hubert Sumlin was born in
Greenwood, Mississippi on November 16, 1931. He picked up the guitar as a
child, and met the legendary Howlin’ Wolf, who would go on to be his musical
mentor after inviting Sumlin to move to Chicago and join Wolf’s band in the
early 1950s. He quickly became the lead guitarist for Wolf, and contributed to
some of the man’s most well known recordings including “Hidden Charms”, “Killing
, “Wang Dang Doodle”, and many more. Sumlin remained Wolf’s
sideman until Wolf’s death in 1976, and he continued playing with other members
of the band into the 1980s. He recorded solo projects throughout the years, but
nothing showcased the awe he inspired in some of the most famous names in music
like his career capping 2004 LP About Them Shoes, a collection of
old-school blues songs originally written by Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon that
boasted contributions by such luminaries as Keith Richards, Levon Helm, and
Eric Clapton. He was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 2008,
three years before his death on December 4, 2011. Four years later, a special
issue of Rolling Stone selected the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,
and Sumlin ranked 43rd
