“...we have some history together that hasn’t happened yet.”

A fella by the name of Chester Arthur Burnett, otherwise known as Howlin' Wolf, possessed a voice that could topple buildings. Born in White Station, Mississippi, he sang, played blues harp, and bent steel rails with his bare hands. When he sang, wild animals cowered, strong men wept, and clocks ran backwards. He joined the army in World War II, and worked as a radioman in Seattle.
