Band Name Origins:

  • I'll never forget being at the Shaboo Inn, in Willimantic Connecticut, the week Wolf died; Muddy Waters was there, and he played Smith's old anthem in tribute to his fallen comrade/rival. But Wolf himself claimed variously that he adapted the high, lonesome wail of country/western pioneer Jimmie Rodgers; and/or that his grandfather used to tell him scary stories about "how the Wolf done Little Red Riding Hood," and that these evocative tales led him to adapt the "Wolf" personna as his own.

  • Howlin' Wolf was a name in a FUNNY PAPA SMITH Record. It also described Wolf's voice very well. Source = History Channel special which aired in January, 2000. Submitted by: Bobo
