Howlin’ Wolf Disses Son House

I ran across this clip while watching a documentary on the late, great blues master. It seems that Howlin’ Wolf wasn’t a big fan of Son House’s drinking. As most of you know, Son House was the king, the innovator who all the younger guys — Wolf being one of those — respected. But according to close friends of mine who new Son House, he was also a heroic drunk — turning up a bottle of gin or vodka as if it were water. In this clip, Wolf is plenty pissed about it. — Ace
