http://www.JohnLeeHookerJr.com and http://www.Musiceur.comJohn Lee Hooker Jr. caught live at The Compund Grill in Scottsdale, AZ Jan. 27th, 2010. He was born in Detroit Motor City with Delta blues-filled blood running through his Motown veins. The son of the great John Lee Hooker, he was exposed the life of the blues from a young age. At only eight years old Jr. performed on Detroits WJBK radio and knew from that moment that he wanted to follow the path of his father and become a world-class musician. Touring alongside Hooker, Sr. throughout his teens, Jr. had already performed in prestigious venues such as Detroits Fox Theatre with acclaimed musicians like Jimmy Reed by the time he was 16. In 1972, an eighteen year-old John Jr. was singing vocals alongside his father for the recording of Hooker, Sr.s album Live at Soledad Prison (ABC Records). Distributed by Tubemogul.
