Canned Heat

About Canned Heat

Founded in 1966 by blues historians and record collectors Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, Canned Heat were, with the exception of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, every bit as deep into the roots of the blues as any other combo of the time mining similar turf. They played the Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals (and made it into the documentaries about both) with their passionate, hard-rocking variation on the blues, and while their greatest stardom faded by the end of the 1970s, they continued recording and performing well into the 2010s.
