    He also fooled around with to many married ladies analogmike which that's what really killed him besides his fast paced & dangerous life. They have two graves with Robert Johnson's name. Robert Lockwood Jr. who was his last relative MAYBE would've known but he passed away a few years ago.

    Willie Brown & Son House.........would love to know where he went for six months. He lived a fast paced & dangerous life which cost him his life. We're VERY lucky that he was recorded in time. All of his songs are classics and about five are big classics which this is one of them.

    ~GREAT1~and if you listen closely to the words, Son House's account of the deal struck between the soon-to-be LegendMan and Lucifer kinda makes sense. sad, but could well be true ~OhYeah~

    The legendary tale fraught with peril. Crossroads? Where's a good overpass at when you need one?

    The magic spring of modern rock indeed: Robert Johnson, and his mythic "encounter with Old Scratch".
