Hubert Sumlin: The Wolf’s Man
Alan Paul, Guitar World, 1998
INTRODUCTION: I had heard that Hubert Sumlin was a genuinely nice guy. But before I ventured uptown to a Manhattan club to interview him, there was no way I could have grasped the warmth, humor and deeply entrenched good-time vibe given off by the guitarist whose pithy, perfectly placed lines put much of the sting into the great Howlin Wolfs most famous sides with Chess Records --easily some of the greatest blues ever recorded.
