Interview with scholar/musician Bruce Conforth
In his all too short life (he died at 26), Robert Johnson's musical work changed the Blues, inspired Rock and Roll, and had a huge impact on World Music that we're still feeling today.
What do we know about the real life of this singular artist who roamed the country in the Depression era with little more than a guitar, massive intelligence and a boundless capacity for work?
Not much...until now.
Meet the REAL Robert Johnson - beyond the mythological haze.
Bruce Conforth, a guitarist and harmonica player, has been studying Johnson's life and work for 40 years.
Here's the Facebook page for his upcoming book on Johnson. The working title is "Up Jumped the Devil: The Real Life of Robert Johnson."
