Legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker lived more life in one of his songs than the collective lifetimes of many.

Spanning several decades of the American experience, One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer tells three tales of Hooker's storied life through the perspective of those who lived within his massive orbit, weaving textured and interpretative stories that rise to the lofty creative heights of his music and fall to the gritty reality of trying to thrive in several unforgiving eras.
