Résumé:

Graves applies the lively narration of music journalism to this brief biography of Delta blues guitarist Robert Johnson. The author does not shy away from the famous legend about Johnson's apparently instant virtuosity--that he sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his chops--but investigates its source and the hoop-la it caused over the previously obscure guitarist, particularly after the movie Crossroads came out in 1989. Johnson's death came just 27 years into his life and it falls just five chapters into this book. The remaining nine discuss the Johnson legend and legacy, a feud over photos of the bluesman, and the three-second film that some say prove the legend. This book is distributed by Independent Publishers Group.
