Hello Herlock,

I think these people would have to bump their IQs up 50 points or so to be morons. Nasty, sick people.

I really have to stop watching this kind of stuff but it is like looking at a traffic accident. You know you shouldn't but you can't help yourself.

Hi c.d.

I know what you mean. It’s depressing that people like this still exist. I’m an atheist but I’d hope that every decent religious person would condemn this nasty Iron Age crap.

It’s 11.45pm here and I’m thinking of going to bed. Hearing that did nothing to help me relax!

I would guess he was kept alive, certainly in the early days, by the treatment offered by the NHS, which, with the possible exception of my dentist, isn't particularly demonic.
Anyway, everybody knows if you do a deal with the devil, you die in an ironic way somehow related to the thing you sold your soul for.

Like Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil to be the best guitar player in the world, which in turn got him more women, which got him killed by a jealous husband.

But your all right these people are troglodytes.

I always loved how people keep repeating that "story" first off.. it isn't true.. and 2nd... Johnson wasn't the best guitarist in the world...by a long shot ( don't get me wrong.. I love Johnson..but just being honest)...just off the top of my head I will name some contemporaries of his that were arguably better players...in Jazz you had Bill DeArango, Oscar Aleman and of course Django Reinhardt. I know, not fair to compare Jazz and blues... ok then 2 blues players of the same era come to mind.... Big Bill Broozy and probably the most underrated and forgotten great ever Charley Patton...anyone not familiar with any of these names I encourage you to look them up... all amazing players.

As for the thread.. sickening...and sadly this is what "faith" teaches...and folks don't get all up in arms.. not saying every believer thinks this way... but it IS what is taught, and what the true "believers" believe..and the comments....disgusting and just flat out wrong...why do people of faith have to put their fingers in their ears and whine when they are presented with FACTS!!!!

Being well into the blues, and a fairly crap-to-lousy guitarist myself, I agree with what you say. The blues guitarist Son House, who knew Johnson, laughed at the 'crossroads story' (which is nevertheless a damn good story) and said that Johnson just went away and practised very, very hard. I wouldn't be so eager to dismiss him as a very good blues player, if not the best then certainly towards the top of the tree. And also according to Son House, Johnson had more women than he could handle, at any time in his short life.

Off-thread a bit, but some time ago there was a website which played some of Johnson's numbers at slower speed, and to my ear they sounded a damn sight better than most of the rather frenetic recordings which have come down to us. This website suggested that the masters had to be speeded up to fit the songs onto a standard 3 minute disc. Clapton slows the tempo on his 'Me and Mr Johnson' c.d., and the songs sound all the better for it. Well, maybe, maybe not. I still like his stuff.

Another Johnson legend is that he's got two graves......

I'd add Andres Segovia and Julian Bream to that list. OK, they were/are "classical" guitarists, but musicians of unrivalled technique... and Bream played jazz and swing really well, too: https://youtu.be/g69B5S7t_lA?t=35.
