Personal Fact of Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson was an American blues composer, guitarist, and singer whose eerie falsetto voice and masterful, rhythmic slide guitar influenced both his contemporaries and many later blues and rock musicians. In Robinsonville, where he spent the bulk of his youth, he came in contact with Delta blues masters Willie Brown, Charley Patton, and Son House, who were not particularly impressed by his talent.

They were, however, astonished by his musical ability when he returned to his town after being away for a year. According to legends, during that period he made a deal with Satan at a crossroad, acquiring his prodigious talent as a guitarist, singer and songwriting in exchange for the stipulation that he would have only eight more years to live.

He traveled throughout Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas and Tennessee and as far north as Chicago and New York, playing at house parties, juke joints and on the street. In 1936 37, he made a series of recordings in a hotel room in San Antonio, Texas, and at a warehouse in Dallas. His repertoire included several blues songs but his original numbers, Hellhound on My Trail, and Terraplane Blues are most compelling pieces. Despite the limited body of work, he had a major impact on several other brilliant musicians, including Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones.
