On June 21, 2001, John Lee Hooker died aged 84. He was musician (guitar), singer and songwriter, regarded as one of the most important blues artists ever. He rose to prominence performing an electric guitar-style adaptation of Delta blues and became world-famous by his endless driving rhythm boogie style, but he also incorporated other elements, including talking blues and early North Mississippi Hill country blues.  In his career that stretched across more than half a century, Hooker composed big number of blues classics including “Boogie Chillen'” (1948), “Crawling King Snake” (1949), “Dimples” (1956), “Boom Boom” (1962), and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” (1966).
