Robert Johnson, 1911-1938

“At first the music almost repelled me, it was so intense, and this man made no attempt to sugar coat what he was trying to say,or play. It was hard-core, more than anything that I had ever heard. After a few listenings I realized that, on some level, I had found the master, and that following this man’s example would be my life’s work.” - Eric Clapton

“when Johnson started singing, he seemed like a guy who could have sprung from the head of Zeus in full armour.” - Bob Dylan
