John Lee Hooker: One Burbon, One Scotch, One Beer

Cool video of John Lee Hooker. Its always an adventure for sidemen when they play with the old master. John Lee had a tendency, like most elder statesmens of the blues to play a song different each time. You have to be on your toes and listen good to play with the greats! although I must admit that when I played with Jimmy Pryor he always knew where the changes were. BTW, Jimmy knew John Lee Hooker from his Detroit days, and the two of them played together quite often.
