Robert went to the crossroad and sold his soul to devil to make him the best guitar player in the world.. and .. it works. He took 2 recording sessions and recorded 29 songs in 41 takes. It was a commercial disaster. in 1938 he died in the age of 27. Poison, syphilis or the devil himself took his soul.. Robert Johnson’s songs are the prototype songs of delta blues and modern blues in general.. he ist the best guitar player of all time.. the devil didn’t lie but the price was high!
