Wikipedia : This day (January 10, 1976), in Hines, Illinois, died Chester Arthur Burnett a.k.a Howlin’ Wolf, an American blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player.

Official Site : His stage presence was absolutely feral, exaggerated by his physical size—he stood 6′ 3 tall, weighed 275 lbs late in life, and wore size 16 shoes.

@allmusic : As the ’70s moved on, the end of the trail started coming closer. By now Wolf was a very sick man; he had survived numerous heart attacks and was suffering kidney damage from an automobile accident that sent him flying through the car’s windshield.

@last.fm : Sam Phillips once remarked, “When I heard Howlin’ Wolf, I said, ‘This is for me. This is where the soul of man never dies.’” In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #51 on their list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.
