Doug Fir

When Jordan Cook swaggered out of machine-made fog a couple years ago, he was already Reignwolf, a seemingly fully formed blues-rock hero for the 21st century. His look is like if Bob Dylan and the Wolfman had a baby, and that baby joined a biker gang. His sound is classic, thunderous electric blues, all serrated guitar licks and scorched-earth howls. His show started out as a solo spectacle with Cook playing, singing, and stomping on a kick drum at the same time. (He has a band now, though his sets still feature some of the old one-man-band thing.) Also, he calls himself Reignwolf. Reignwolf! Like a wolf that reigns over all of the blues-rock landscape! Cook is the natural heir to the Led Zeppelin/Jack White throne, or maybe more; as a commenter at Rolling Stone's website says: "Jordan Cook is 100 percent this generation's Jimi Hendrix. Only dirtier, filthier, fuzzier, and way more badass." BEN SALMON
