GUEST,Steve Latimer bashing Robert Johnson (44) RE: bashing Robert Johnson 30 Sep 00


I for one am Robert Johnson fan and I feel that he is the father of the Modern Blues. Virtually every one of his songs has been covered successfully by modern musicians and it is through these covers that most of us discovered the likes of Charlie Patton, Son House, Bukka White, Blind Willie etc.

I think he consistently wrote the best lyrics of his era and was a wonderful player and singer. I'm not saying that he is necessarily better than the others, but certainly more influential and deserves the respect that he is given.
