Rest Well, John Lee

”John Lee Hooker passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning (June 21st).” – An elder statesman of the blues leaves the stage.

”One night I was layin’ down,

I heard mama ’n papa talkin’

I heard papa tell mama, let that boy boogie-woogie,

it’s in him, and it got to come out

And I felt so good,

went on boogie’n just the same.”

Rest well, John Lee.
