John Lee Hooker Jr.

For many, growing up in someone else's shadow is daunting, particularly when that someone is a looming legendary figure known world-wide. Eclipsed by that someone, you may constantly hear comparisons drawn as you try to establish yourself and your career.

This is not the case for John Lee Hooker, Jr. Born the son of Blues great John Lee Hooker, he acknowledges the significant contribution his father made to music, and knows he was never overshadowed by his father. Rather he was born to and carries on a legacy that's both broad and wide.

Born in the Motor City, John Lee Hooker Jr has Delta blues blood running through his Motor City veins
