I thought that was just for the story within Crossroads....?    A blues player *should* not have to sell their soul for talent, they are already in their own little hell, called the blues....  Expression of sadness and dispair thru music....  :sad:

Thats the Myth at least. And yes Jcoke he is the man who invented blues as we know it, and with only 29 songs.

As an interesting little sidenote, Son House started the rumour that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil. Johnson played in front of Son House and wasn't really very impressive, then a year or so later played to him again (having greatly improved), and House said something along the lines of "He must've sold his soul to the devil to play like that". I studied blues last year, interesting little genre really.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Cool tidbit. Funny how a legend like that could get blown up from an off the cuff remark.

Robert Johnson's pact with the devil
Famously, Johnson sold his soul to the devil in order to play guitar like a demon. You want prima facie evidence? How about 'Me and the Devil Blues', and the fact that young Robert was a poor guitarist whose improvement was remarkable. Actually, he used that little known voodoo technique 'practice', and was tutored by a bluesman called Ike Zimmerman. Not Satan.
