Hey, my friend AnnMarie (Rev Johnny) reminded me that it is Black Music Month. I am so late, as usual. She put up some Robert Johnson today. He was so ahead of his time. Where would the Stones or Eric Clapton be without RJ? I'm just saying.
I only have 4 days left in this month so RJ can get busy and represent.
Sweet Home Chicago
Eric Clapton has recorded most of Johnson's 29 songs. Here Clapton plays "Stones in My Passway" and talks about how difficult it is to recreate Johnson's playing. Believe me I know he's right. Robert Johnson was the transition to the modern blues. Muddy Waters followed as did electric bluesmen B.B. King and Jimi Hendrix.
