About the image
This shot of Delta blues legend John Lee Hooker was an outtake from his 1981 album, Mad Man Blues . Born the son of a sharecropper, Hooker, despite being illiterate, was a prolific lyricist. And his use of the electric guitar tied together the Delta blues with the emerging post-war psychedelic music scene, influencing such classic rock artists as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton, among countless others.
