I never thought Thorogood was bad, I just don't think he sounds like Hooker. I find Thorogood's tough bad boy persona rather entertaining. I personally think he's got a pretty solid recognizable sound going for him too. I just don't think it is so easy to compare the two because of their very contrasting sounds.

Saw John Lee Hooker open for Muddy Waters in a little club in Berkeley back in '78(?).
Got Muddy's autograph!

Thumbs up Thanks for the videos!

Wow, I got a copy of the songs Chill Out and the Healer from a friend a couple of years ago and I STILL listen to both often. I had never seen the videos and enjoyed them a lot. Great music!
George T. ripped off BoDiddly. It's hard to listen to a whole song that has only one or two cords but both those guys made it work (sometimes). Give George a listen on "Night Time is the Right Time".

I enjoy his music and I think he's got a great casual, not-trying-too-hard sound. He just lets it roll just as slow or fast as he feels it needs to.
I agree with this comment 100%. Couldn't have worded it better myself.

I discovered John Lee Hooker from my uncles record collection. Seen a song on LP entitled Boom Boom. Had heard Pat Travers perform this song. Been a fan of John Lee Hooker ever since I listened to those old LP's when I was 14
