AD: John Lee Hooker for Dean Markley

“Bottom Line Bluesman”

This ad is from Guitar World, April 1994. What was the 76-year-old John Lee Hooker up to in ’94? A quick check of Allmusic.com returns 581 Hooker albums—most of which likely comprise a perplexing web reissues and re-packagings—so who knows.

  1. We created the Dean Markley advertising from concept, copy through photography&illustration from 1980 thru 2011. I recall this session with John
    Lee Hooker; throughout the photo session he kept asking me for strings
    they’d promised. We halted shooting to hand him the box of strings, then
    continued photographing him. Afterwards, we found he’d left the strings in
    our studio.
