Howlin' Wolf (June 10, 1910 - January 10, 1976) was born Chester Arthur Burnett in rural Mississippi where he became one of the leading Delta blues singers. He recorded in Memphis and Chicago, and many of his songs such as "Backdoor Man", "Little Red Rooster" and "Smokestack Lightnin" were covered by rock/blues groups.
