Canned Heat

Biography

This veteran blues outfit has been together for more than thirty years and they continue to make records and tour even though there are only two members left. The band became famous after playing Woodstock and being prominently featured both in the film and soundtrack versions. They have a loose, hypnotic style that puts the rhythm before the soloists, unlike a lot of their '60s brethren. The band hit the charts with "Going Up the Country" and "Let's Work Together" and also achieved a certain amount of critical acclaim for their collaboration with John Lee Hooker on the record Hooker 'N' Heat. Founding members Al Wilson, Bob Hite, and Henry Vestine have all died, but the band carries on with bassist Larry Taylor and drummer Fito De La Parra.
