High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Canned Heat is a
blues-rock/boogie rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California
in 1965. The group has been noted for its own interpretations of
blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in
this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two
blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from
Tommy Johnson's 1928 "Canned Heat Blues," a song about an alcoholic
who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called
"canned heat." After appearances at Monterey and Woodstock, at the
end of the 1960s the band acquired worldwide fame with a lineup
consisting of Bob Hite, vocals, Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson, guitar,
harmonica and vocals, Henry Vestine (or Harvey Mandel) on lead
guitar, Larry Taylor on bass, and Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra on
