On the 3rd September 1970, Alan Christie Wilson aka Al „Blind Owl“ Wilson was found dead in his home in Los Angeles. The member of the legendary Blues/Boogie/Rock band Canned Heat died at the age of 27. Wilson was guitarist, harmonica player, singer and a founder member of the group and wrote one of the biggest hits for Canned Heat: „Gonig up the Country„. This track became the unofficial theme song of Woodstock.
The album „Hooker ‚N Heat„ is a double album released by Canned Heat with John Lee Hooker in 1971. It’s the last studio album featuring Alan Wilson. The photo for the cover was taken after Wilson’s death, but his framed picture can be seen on the wall.
