Those old 50's blues guys are disappearing quick. He played on most of those classic Howlin' Wolf records. My He also beat Jerry out by 3 places in the Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Guitarist list :-)

Here's a video of my buddy Bob Margolin playing with Hubert on Mountain Stage back in 2001 - Hubert was a youthful 70. I think the first tune will be familiar :cool:

Here's a cool pic Bob had on his FB page of some of the recently lost blues greats hangin' out together (Calvin "Fuzz" Jones, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Koko Taylor, and Hubert Sumlin).

I noticed he's playing through a Louis Electric amp on that first video. Those guys were at the Gear Expo..great guys with great equipment.

I didn't know he passed until I read it here.

Those Chess records he played on have been a big influence to me.
