With Regards to The Hooker Family Musicians


My online friends BeautysSymphony and JadedJ commented on the fact that they did not know that Earl Hooker was related to John Lee Hooker. Which got me to thinking, didn't John Lee Hooker have a son, who is also a blues musician?

He did and According to Wikipedia;

John Lee Hooker Jr is a blues musician, born in 1952 in Detroit. He is the son of the late John Lee Hooker. The younger Hooker's musical style is markedly modernized, featuring contemporary arrangements.

In 2008 Hooker toured with a back-up band consisting of George Lacson (Bass), Jeff Horan (Guitar), Mike Rogers (Drums), and Brian James (Keys).

His third album, All Odds Against Me was released on August 19, 2008. Many of the tracks reflect the demons he has faced in his life.
