This book is highly recommended to all you people who like to read about the bluesmen, much of it in their own words. IIRC, I think that there's a version of that John Lee interview in the book. If you're not the old fashioned book buying type like me, you can read Jas on the web.

In 1992, I had the wonderful experience of playing a stack of old blues records for John Lee Hooker. I taped his comments as he listened to T-Bone Walker and B.B. King's first recordings, Lucille Bogan's unexpurgated "Shave 'Em Dry," Memphis Minnie's "Ma Rainey," Lonnie Johnson's "No More Troubles Now," Blind Blake's "Hastings St.," Albert King's "Personal Manager Blues," and a couple of his own early 78s. In between songs, Mr. Hooker spoke about life and music. I've just posted a new and complete transcription for anyone who wants to see it. Man, I loved that guy! http://jasobrecht.com/

I've also posted a lot of other unique blues-related material on the website -- it's the culmination of my 30+ years work as a music journalist and author. Hope you enjoy it!
