Fito De La Parra (Canned Heat)

Fito De La Parra (Canned Heat)

Woodstock veterans Canned Heat were not just another blues/boogie band. They had some top talent on their team - to name just a few, frontman and major-league blues record collector Bob Hite, musicologist, harpist and bottleneck guitar player Alan Wilson (one John Lee Hooker once remarked that Wilson played his own music better than he himself did!), and a gifted drummer who'd begun his career in the mid-1950s playing with Mexico's top pop acts.It is with this drummer, Fito De La Parra, that I speak this time. We discuss his career before and with Canned Heat, for whom he still plays.
