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.
