American bluesman (1910-1976). Real name: Chester Arthur Burnett. THE powerhouse blues performer. Though many other musicians have been more skilled, the Wolf's distinctive growl was capable of driving an audience wild with excitement (and sometimes terror). He recorded many songs written by Willie Dixon, backed up by blazing guitarists Willie Johnson and Hubert Sumlin. The Wolf made his television debut on ABC's rock music show "Shindig" in 1965--the Rolling Stones were scheduled to appear on the show and insisted that Howlin' Wolf perform as their special guest. Some of the Wolf's hits included "Smokestack Lightnin'", "The Red Rooster", "Back Door Man", "Killing Floor", and "Wang Dang Doodle". Many of his songs were covered by the Rolling Stones, the Doors, Cream, Jeff Beck, the Blues Project, and the Electric Flag.
