Screamin' Jay Hawkins

You may or may not be familiar with this guy. He is extremely famous for I Put A Spell On You (the song you'll find below). Later on, Bette Midler covered it in the Disney movie Hocus Pocus. But that's not that point, this is about Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

He is considered to be one of the first "shock rockers" and rockers to do theatrical stuff on stage. He has a pretty storied career and it's interesting. You can read more about him here: Screamin' Jay Hawkins | AllMusic

I don't know what else to say about him. I do like him and he's on a rock 'n' roll boxset that I have that feature other songs besides I Put A Spell On You. They're pretty damn great songs and they really showcase his awesomeness and talent. Anyone here like him?
