Hubert Sumlin is right at the top of the list of blues legends. Such an amazing guitarist, but still a humble and unassuming man. R.I.P. Hubert, and thanx for all the great music you left us with.
Thank you Hubert. Thanks for all of it. I was pleased and privileged to meet and spend a couple of hours with you back in the mid '80's. We enjoyed each others company and to this day I remain impressed with what a down to earth,unassuming man you were. You made an indelible mark in American music without a doubt. When Wolf saw and heard you way back when, he knew you were something special and who can question that? Rest in Peace

Ed and I will never forget the weekend you spent at our house in St. Paul and how you put the whole can of Draino down the bathtub. You were so concerned how slow the water was running. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for being so kind to Grama. She loved you just like we do. Rest in peace my friend. I know how much you meant to Curt and how you took him under your wing when he first came to Chicago. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Godspeed Barb Obeda

Hubert was the first person I met when arriving in Chicago in 1976, and he was the most gracious and inspiring man I have known. For someone so gifted, he was truly humble. Hubert was a unique artist and a unique human being, and he will be missed by everyone who ever came in contact with him.
Sweet Hubert. Words cannot express all we feel in our hearts. Will cherish moments spent with you.
Hubert, I know our parents Chester & Lillie Burnett aka Mr. & Mrs, Howlin' Wolf, greeted you with love and happiness when you arrived in Heaven Sunday morning. We love and miss you. You have been a part of our family (brother) for as long as we can remember. We know you are at peace now. Love you always!!!

One of the greatest Blues guitarists of all time.He will be missed.Michael Brady,N.J.
My Prayers goes out to your Family! You will be missed. I'm glad we met.
Heaven done called another Blues-stringer back Home! We love you Hubert!!
I had the pleasure of meeting Hubert and sitting in with him a few times. He was a sweet guy AND a bit of a rascal. When God made him, that mold must have been so hot that he dropped it and it broke. Ain't been another like him since. R.I.P. Hubert!
Rest in Peace, Mr. Hubert. You were a wicked picker and a hoot to boot.
Sad to see you go so soon, your music speaks for itself, I hope your in a better place, God Bless Ya. Keep on Rockin'.
You will be missed. I will always remember the respect you always gave to me on many shows during the 90;s. Especdially when you appeareed at the MT Wachussetts blues festival. Yes we will miss you.

You will always live in our hearts and prayers.
