Howlin' Wolf (June 10, 1910 - January 10, 1976) was born Chester Arthur Burnett in rural Mississippi where he became one of the leading Delta blues singers. He recorded in Memphis and Chicago, and many of his songs such as "Backdoor Man", "Little Red Rooster" and "Smokestack Lightnin" were covered by rock/blues groups. Unlike many other bluesmen, he lived frugally and was financially secure. In his 40's he returned to school, earning his GED and taking business courses. #TodayInBlackHistory

Delta bluesman Howlin' Wolf was one of the most influential and imposing musicians of the post-World War II era, and his later electric Chicago blues — featuring his deep, lupine voice — helped shape the sound of rock & roll. Numerous blues-based rock artists, from the Rolling Stones to Eric Clapton, sang his praises and helped sustain his career throughout the 1960s and beyond.
