John Lee Hooker Exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA

To commemorate 100 years since the birth of Blues legend John Lee Jooker, the Grammy Museum in Mississippi, Hooker’s home-state unveiled a special exhibit including his awards, guitars, photos and more from his estate opened last year. On March 29, this exhibit made its debut at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA with a special Q&A conducted by Grammy Museum executive director Scott Goldman with Hooker’s daughters Diane and Zakiya and the exhibit’s curator Nwaka Onwusa. Hooker’s daughters told stories of how he would let musicians at his shows come up and sit in for one song to the importance of preserving his legacy and being a major influence on many of the biggest Rock N’ Roll guitarists. After the Q&A concluded, Zakiya performed her own music along with two other guitarists and a bassist along with one of her father’s songs. The exhibit runs through June 2018.
