The Howlin' Wolf Story is fantastic!
Wolf was a stand-up, family-man guy who came from "meager" (his daughter's word) beginnings, ran a tight band, and paid his guys well, including unemployment insurance. His mother kicked him out at the age of 13 and would never speak to him again, including on his deathbed, because he played "the devil's music."
I think it's the devil's work to turn your back on your own son!
There are some amazing clips of Wolf LICKING the neck of his guitar.
Here's his version of "Dust My Broom"...
