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. Unlike many other bluesmen, he lived frugally and was financially secure. In his 40's he returned to school, earning his GED and taking business courses. #TodayInBlackHistory
