John Lee Hooker

Today in 2001 we lost one of the greatest blues men to ever grace this planet. He was also one of my favorite people to shoot. He was humble and so sweet. This photograph was taken as he was leaving the club. I was gobsmacked when he threw me this kiss. I am so happy that I caught it.

I just found this amazing video of JLH that has less than 16K views. This is a must-see treasure...

 

See a ton more photos of John Lee Hooker in my book,
Everybody I Shot Is Dead.
