Bruce Conforth, Gayle dean WardlowEt le diable a surgi: La vraie vie de Robert Johnson
And the Devil has arisen, finally revealing the true life of Robert Johnson, for the first time, the founding myth of his story is challenged! – Robert Johnson (1911-1938) is said to have sold his soul to the devil on the side of a road in exchange for his gift for music. Thus was born the legend of the blues, the founder of the ‘club of 27’. – Johnson recorded only 29 songs, yet he influenced many stars including Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. – For more than 50 years, the authors have interviewed those close to him and analysed all the documents that have been devoted to him.
They look back at the key moments of his life: his marriage, his stay in Memphis, his meeting with Ike Zimmerman and the exact circumstances of his death. – This definitive biography thus moves away from myths for the first time to focus on the real life of Robert Johnson.
