Today is the birthday of delta blues guitarist Robert Johnson.
Born in Hazlehurst, Mississippi young Robert was always interested
In music but was never very good, that is until he disappeared for
A short time and returned a virtuoso.
Johnson claimed that the source of his new abilities to be attributed
To having sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads at midnight.
Weather you buy into the myth or not it's still worth giving him a
Listen to celebrate the man who continues to have such a great impact
On music so many years after his death.
Robert Johnson is one hundred years old today, Let us pay him
Respect with one of his jazzier songs.
