I think he was emphasizing that Robert Johnson didn't practice voodoo.

That's what I got from it.

Either way...he didn't.

And if he did, it would have had no connection to the whole "devil at the crossroads" myth.

Exactly.

Has anyone else listened to the Radiolab podcast about Robert Johnson? It's pretty interesting, and as always with them, very well presented. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoy a good and informative story.

Voodoo was really only mentioned once. Not much was said about it.

It was mentioned in the context of selling one's soul to the devil, and then again in a claim that Screamin' Jay Hawkins was a practitioner, presumably because he used to dress in a campy way that was arguably inspired by American stereotypes about Voodoo. And all I said was I hoped those comments were jokes.

I see. Well maybe dr. John is a practitioner of voodoo as well. :laughing:

Sure. And maybe Peter Criss is a cat.
