Delta Blues Museum Online Store
John Lee Hooker (Aug 22, 1912 - June 21, 2001) was born near Clarksdale and grew up in the Delta. Hooker’s music blends several musical traditions - Delta blues, talking blues, and early North Mississippi Hill country blues - into an original, driving-rhythm style that marks his signature sound.
A multiple Grammy award winner, Hooker’s best-known songs are blues classics, among them "Boogie Chillen”, "Boom Boom”, and "Burning Hell.” Follow his life and times at our "Explore and Learn” feature about his "endless boogie.”
Check out Hooker’s colorful history in a vivid biography, listen to a CD collection of his greatest songs, and wear your shout out to "The Boogie Man” with a JLH tee, all available from our Gift Shop.
