As I 've wrote in the first post, my first contact with the Delta Blues came some years ago when I accidentally “discovered” Robert Johnson, this legendary figure of the Blues. Although I already had a contact with the genre, this “return to the roots” was something truly amazing. Robert Johnson was a musician who changed, in his 27 years of his life, the history of blues music. With that in mind the first subject that will occupy us in deltacrossroads naturally will have to do with the great grandfather of rock. This “tribute” to Robert Johnson has been divided in three parts. In the first part there will be a short bio of his life and the second will regard his music. Finally in the third and last part we will see his legend and how these survive until today. In the third part we shall also see the myth of his contract with the Devil.
