The Legend of Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson is one of Mississippi’s most famous sons.  Considered to be the fifth greatest guitar player of all time (Rolling Stone), Johnson influenced generations of musicians including Eric Clapton and Keith Richards.  He’s been described as:

“Robert Johnson – The root source for a whole generation of blues and rock and roll musicians”
“The most emotionally committed of all blues-singers”
“The greatest singer, the greatest writer”
“The greatest folk-blues guitar player that ever lived”
“The most accomplished and certainly the most influential of all Bluesman”
“He is a visionary artist”

These are just some of the descriptions offered by musicians and writers that have been awed by the music of Robert Johnson. Little wonder then that the man’s life and work have become the stuff of legend.  But one of the most enduring legends surrounds the belief that he sold his soul to the devil at a Mississippi crossroad to learn how to play the guitar.
