Biography

American musician nicknamed "Blind Owl," he was noted for his boogie-blues rock sound on guitar and in his vocals. He played harp as well. He co-founded the group Canned Heat in 1966, and the band's hit "On The Road Again" was released in 1969.

Wilson loved the blues and is considered one of those visionaries who restored the blues to popularity in the 1960s. He also loved nature, botany and ecology and often slept outdoors. A deep introvert, he battled his own demons with drugs and alcohol, and he reportedly tried to commit suicide once or twice. Wilson died of a seconal and alcohol overdose in the back lot of Canned Heat singer Bob "Bear" Hite's home in Topanga Canyon CA on September 3, 1970. Officials determined his overdose was accidental but his friends felt that suicide could not be ruled out.
