    Thanks for having a tribute/Birthday for John Lee Hooker. I worked closely with the Santa Barbara (California) Blues Society and was asked by John Lee to drive for him during a concert & visit in 1978, and whenever he visited for a few years afterward. I got to know him very well ~~ he was a very kind and generous man ~~ with lots of great stories.
