Last week, I blogged about Jim Morrison from The Doors. He passed away at age 27.
Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson died shortly before him at the same age. Co-founder, leader, and primary composer for the American blues band Canned Heat, he played guitar, harmonica, and sang. I featured him once before for his harmonica virtuosity as he’s one of my favorite blues harp players.
Enjoy “Going up the Country” from a unique voice, sadly, gone too soon.
Alan Wilson passed away September 3, 1970.
