Last of original Hill Country Deep Bluesmen

HILL COUNTRY BLUESMAN ~ Robert Wolfman Belfour

ROBERT WOLFMAN BELFOUR

Robert “Wolfman” Belfour (September 11, 1940 – February 24, 2015) was an Americanbluesmusician. He was born in Red Banks, Mississippi.[1] When he was a child, his father, Grant Belfour, taught him to play the guitar, and he continued his tutelage in the blues from the musicians Otha Turner, R. L. Burnside, and Junior Kimbrough. Kimbrough, in particular, had a profound influence on him. His music was rooted in Mississippi hill country traditions, in contrast to Delta blues. His playing was characterized by a percussive attack and alternate tunings.[2]

THE LEGEND – HUBERT SUMLIN – played w. Howlin’ Wolf.

AN INSPIRATION TO THE ROLLING STONES, TO ERIC CLAPTON ET AL .. ONE OF THE TOP FIFTY GUITARISTS IN THE WORLD… Howlin’ Wolf’s LEAD guitarist. Hubert is in the BLUES HALL OF FAME.  WHEN HE DIED, THE ROLLING STONES PAID FOR HIS FUNERAL WHILE ERIC CLAPTON PUT ON A BENEFIT SHOW WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST MUSICIANS TO HONOR THIS MAN. I MET HIM IN HIS ‘DRESSING ROOM’ BEFORE A SHOW .. HE KNEW A COUSIN OF MINE .. COULDN’T BE HAPPIER TO MEET ME AS I WAS BLOWN AWAY MEETING MY IDOL. WE CHATTED / LAUGHED .. ONLY HE, I AND HIS MANAGER WERE THERE … WHAT A TERRIBLE LOSS.
