Canned Heat

Canned Heat

Canned Heat was rare among the American blues-loving bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s: The group had a few hits. As one critic noted, the musicians were more popularizers than purists. The 1981 death of cofounder Bob Hite essentially ended Canned Heat's most visible period, but the players have always persevered. They endured Al Wilson's death in 1970 and weathered dozens of personnel shifts. Canned Heat has continued under the leadership of Fito de la Parra.
