^ I'm not really so big on him. sure people have all the stories about

the devil and the crossroads and all that. But as far as a legacy,

BB King or Muddy Waters or Albert King or any number of other guys

have got him beat.

 

Kind of like calling taki183 the "graffiti godfather."

Sure he was there doing it, but who actually claims him as their favorite?

Guest KING OF HELL

his actual music was so ahead of itself. he has not much of a legacy because he died real early. its not so much that he idnt have the music right down.

 

its more like some early style master that gets slept on because he only nailed it for a few years...

oh I am in total agreement about his music,

and the stories about his life are the stuff of legends too.

There's so many stories about his sleeping with married

women and getting caught then chased out of town. wild!

 

to continue with the writer comparisons...

 

I'd say he's like Spade.

He pushed the art form and influenced the entire history of people who came after,

but never really got the same level of recognition that some of his students did despite his bricklaying styles.

 

right?

Robert had a sad story, being poisoned and all. His music is quite something, and as I like listening to Clapton, and Jimi you can tell they listened to Robert Johnson themselves. Their music reflectes what he did, I have all his works in a box set, along with this comes a story about his death.

 

Keep on rolling

"On Saturday night, August 13, 1938 at a jook joint named Three Forks, Johnson played his last gig. Of the many rumors concerning Johnson's death in 1938 (stabbing, poison, the devil catching up with him), poisoning is the most prevalent and most substantiated. His death certificate was found in 1968, verifying his death in Greenwood, Mississippi."

 

I've heard that he was sleeping with the owner of the Three Forks.

He was a ladies man, and that caught up with him too!
