Actually, it wasn't a documentary about Led Zep's influences, I think it was a more specific Blues documentary. It was on Sky Arts 1. Can't find it anywhere

Well at least your making an attempt to prove your theory. The fact is, very little is actually known concerning the life and times of Robert Johnson. I think the mystery that surrounds RJ is what most people find intriguing about him. I will try and see if I can find anything that supports your statement, to be honest, I have to find out if there is any truth to it for my own curiosity, now that you've mentioned it.

@ Garrett, I'm not trying to be sarcastic or anything like that my friend. But do you ever involve yourself in actual debates concerning music, genres, artist, or what have you? I think your around the same age as I am, and your knowledge concerning music has to be abundant. But it seems all you ever post is pictures, videos, and links to internet sites for information. I remember this is also, all that you seemed to do on the Muzicforums site as well. It really doesn't matter to me, and it may not actually be any of my business, but I like to think that MB does have a certain standard above most other music forums.

It can be almost as irritating as the younger members posting "childish" one liners all the time that just end up clogging good threads.

I hope I haven't insulted anyone because this is not my intent.

The story was basically that Robert Johnson wasn't allowed to play at the same clubs Son House, Muddy Waters, Charlie Patton etc, so he just vanished. He ended up with this random guy (REALLY NEED TO FIND THE DOCUMENTARY!) and came back a genius.

The documentary had an interview with a relative of the guy who he learned to play with (she was white I remember) and talked about how she could hear his style in certain songs.

Sun House spread the "Sold his soul" story in the 60's.

I have also heard this story about Johnson leaving - where he went, i don't know - and when he came back he had gotten so much Better. I remember hearing that guitarists like Son House couldn't believe how much better he had gotten. I'm not saying this is true, but I have heard it. I believe it was from a blues documentary that came on the "ovation" channel.

I do remember reading somewhere about him disappearing for awhile now that you mention it.

Thanks TomClancy!

I think TomClancy stated that it was a blues documentary also.

I didnt mean for it to be an insult Garrett. I was trying to get you more involved because I like you. Hell! I nominated you as one of the nicest members here. But if your going to be a little baby about it, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

I did apologize and thanked all for the opportunity, so there no need for rudeness.....I just don`t fit in here.

Here are a few facts behind Robert Johnson as they were told to me by Honeyboy Edwards
The devil at the crossroads myth is older than Johnson, Skip James, Petie Wilson, Tommy Johnson, and other older delta musicians already used this schtick, so it was something that Johnson embraced as a gimmick.

He left the area for over a year and when he returned he had become much better, more likely due to practicing and gigging around other parts, but who knows, the devil works in mysterious way!

Every one of Johnsons songs can be traced to older songs, unfortunately Robert wasn't as original as we give him credit for . . . but he did develop a very cool fingerstyle way of playing.
