HUBERT SUMLIN
 


Hubert Sumlin is a living legend. He is the hero of all our guitar heroes but he doesn't think about that. Sumlin grew up playing his guitar with harmonica great James Cotton. In 1949 at the age of eighteen he became Howlin' Wolf's lead guitarist, a position he held down for the next twenty-five years, except for a brief six-month stint in Muddy Waters' band. He has played with Pinetop Perkins, Willie Dixon, The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry and countless others. He counts among his biggest fans Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, and John Mayer as well as Keith Richards and Eric Clapton. In 2003 Rolling Stone Magazine included Hubert on their list of the Greatest Guitarists of all time.
