Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

I came across this video a few weeks ago while surfing on YouTube and fell in love with John Lee Hooker's eerie songwriting ability all over again. I'm not sure what this clip is from; presumably it's one of Hooker's early television appearances, but exactly what show it's from is a mystery. Either way, the subtitles at the bottom of the screen are somewhat offensive in my opinion but it doesn't take away from Hooker's bone chilling performance. Check it out. -- Jonathan Cunningham

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
