how many people believe that Robert Johnson went to the crossroads and sold his soul to the devil. I do, what do you think?
#4
Wasn't it actually Tommy Johnson who did that? They just said that about R.J. because he was so good.
#7
I imagine it would be quite difficult to sell something that doesn't exist to a mythological creature.

Robert Johnson is awesome.

This thread belongs in the jazz/blues forum.

That is all.

I laughed my ass off when I found this in a bookstore. A manga about the untold story of Robert Johnson. It bore a striking reskgemblance to Bluesklok.
#16
it's a cool legend but no he just isolated himself for a couple years and practiced his ass off
#18
He may have, but he was NOT the first.


2 words:


Niccolò Paganini

HE sold his sold to the devil, no doubt.
The proof is that Ralph Nachio's character played His 5th Caprice to beat Steve Vai.

No.

I've read countless stories told by friends of his 'bout how he never set that guitar down. His brilliance was just pure, raw talent. Like Hendrix, or Stevie Ray. The Devil story most likely was started by him, he used it the same way that Alestorm uses pirate ****. It was a gimmick. A very, VERY good gimmick, but a gimmick nonetheless.

Also, he was a god.
Jesus wouldn't give you the sweat off of his balls if you were dying of thirst.

Read the moron's posts, ironically enough he knows what he says.

He really doesn't even seem like such a great player to me. Maybe it's just because I'm not very familiar with pre-'40s blues.
#21
i think it would be brilliant if it were possible, but like many of us have stated already, he just cut himself off from the world and practised his butt off

I don't believe in the supernatural, and while he was great it's not like he was superhuman, I've heard better players.

EDIT: So, the Supernatural episode? Mildly entertaining but ultimately formulaic and predictable, or mildestly entertaining but ultimately formuliac and predictable?
