Incurable Blues—the first and only authorized biography of Hubert Sumlin—is a fascinating look at the life of an influential guitarist who has overcome cancer, alcoholism, and undeserved obscurity to carry the Chicago blues sound into a new millennium. Heard on most of Howlin’ Wolf's classic Chess recordings, Sumlin’s style has inspired guitar masters such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Keith Richards, and Jack White, and his story touches the careers of blues greats such as James Cotton, Muddy Waters, Lonnie Brooks, and Chuck Berry.
Told through first-hand interviews with Sumlin and those who know him and his music, Incurable Blues creates an indelible portrait of an often-unheralded musician who deserves a place of honor in the pantheon of blues greats.
Will Romano has written for magazines such as Guitar Player, Bass Player, Modern Drummer, and Blues Revue, as well as for publications such as the New York Post and New York Daily News.
Backbeat Books publishes books for people who are passionate about music, whether as performers or avid fans. For more information on Incurable Blues, please visit www.backbeatbooks.com.
