Little Howlin' Wolf Makes 'Music of the Twilight'

June 5, 2015

“I’m the only one who plays on the streets all year round. I don’t do it for money. Most people ignore me but some people come by and toss a $5 bill and say, they’ve been listening for years and that I should keep it up.

"I’ve lived an impoverished life. I’m just playing for people to listen. I must have composed 4,000 songs.

"I am a Polish gypsy, a member of the on-going wolf tribe. I can play music from the Stone Age. I maintain music of the twilight.” -- Little Howlin' Wolf, 1980.
