HAMMOND B3 KING of NEW ORLEANS
SIDEMAN TO ROCK AND BLUES LEGENDS
BREAKFAST WITH HOWLIN' WOLF
The café was almost empty, but I saw an elderly black man sitting alone. I was almost certain he was my blues idol. After some hesitation, I gained courage and walked to his table. The big man looked at me and smiled. I asked, “Sir, are you Howlin’ Wolf?” He nodded and said, “Yeah, they call me 'Wolf '.” When I mentioned that I was a musician, he growled, “Hey, man, have a seat!” Howlin’ Wolf and I had breakfast together.
