Robert Johnson (USA, Hazlehurst, 8th May 1911-Greenwood, 16th August 1938), is universally considered the king of blues. It is said that, in order to achieve greatness and fame, he sold his soul to the devil.
He wrote only 29 songs, but many are convinced that the 30th, the best, must be hidden somewhere. His end is shrouded in mystery. Some say that he was murdered by a jealous girlfriend, some that he died in a fight in a sleazy bar; nobody really knows what happened to him. What is certain is that he still remains the best and most famous of them all.
This is his story.Or, at least, one of his stories…
