The title says it all, I guess. There's a new boxset released for John Lee Hooker's 100th birthday. Here's the link and a couple of videos of this great musician.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Saw him on one of his later tours, circa 1991. He sat in a chair, but he still sounded great, was a privilege just to be in the same room as this man.
