Hubert Charles Sumlin (16th November 1931 – 4th December 2011)

Happy birthday to Chicago Blues man and guitarist Hubert Charles Sumlin, who was born on 16th November 1931 in Greenwood, Mississippi! When Hubert was eight years old he received his first guitar. In 1954 the Blues icon Howlin‘ Wolf invited Sumlin to be in his band – so he moved to Chicago and joined Mr. Chester Arthur Burnett. After the death of Howlin‘ Wolf, Hubert Sumlin continued playing with several band members under the moniker „The Wolf Pack“ until 1980. Sumlin also recorded many solo albums – some of them were nominated for a Grammy Award. Like his last LP „About them Shoes“ (2004), which features performances by Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Levon Helm, David Johansen and James Cotton. Hubert Sumlin was listed as number 43 in the Rolling Stone list of „100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time„. On the 4th December 2011 Hubert Sumlin passed away of heart failure at the age of 80. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards paid the funeral costs for the Blues legend.
