Standing at the Crossroads

Although most of us live within amplifier range of Eel Pie Island, that nursery of early 60’s British Blues, there isn’t very much that any of us know of Robert Johnson, described by Eric Clapton as “the most important blues singer that ever lived.” In fact because his life is so poorly documented there is little that any of us really know about him apart from the fact he has become a prime influence in blues and a legend - the man who sold his soul to the devil one night on a Mississippi crossroad in exchange for success.

He cunningly called it the “1st St Margarets” and himself, being the leader, “Skipper” The story has it that the first meetings were held under a gaslight on a street corner.
