At over 70, legendary Delta/Detroit Blues man John Lee Hooker releases the enormously
successful albums The Healer (1989) and Mr. Lucky (1991). These
albums put Hooker in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest United
Kingdom chart position ever attained by a blues album and as the oldest performer ever to
reach the top five. As if that weren't enough, The Healer sold over a million copies
and won Hooker his first Grammy.
