GUEST,Neil D Folklore: Crossroads (11) RE: Folklore: Crossroads 15 Oct 10


It was actually Delta bluesman Tommy Johnson who first claimed the crossroad/devil story. To enhance his fame, Johnson cultivated a sinister persona. According to his brother LeDell, he claimed to have sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his mastery of the guitar. This story was later also associated with Robert Johnson, to whom he was unrelated.
