Robert Johnson IS blues. He defines it! Gotta love it!

The Wild Man 01-18-2009 08:21 PM

He really created "evil music". What kind of songs had that dark element to them at that time? He also was a very great guitarist/

I just watched a documentary with Eric Clapton paying tribute to the music of Robert Johnson. And now I understand why Clapton is revered as a great blues guitarist. Anyone that is able to cover Johnson's music the way Clapton does has to be an extraordinary talented artist. The combination of playing the guitar and covering Johnson's lead vocals at the same time, (as explained by Clapton). "One could easily spend a lifetime trying to replicate his music/timing perfectly".

What's yer guys' favorite Johnson song? Cross Road Blues is an obvious favorite, but mine has to be Stop Breaking Down Blues.
