Robert Johnson Named One Of The Greatest Guitarists Of All Time – Rolling Stone

Robert Johnson is included in Rolling Stone’s new list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. Here is an excerpt:

He was barely known for decades after his 1938 death. But the 29 songs Robert Johnson recorded in 1936 and 1937 became holy writ to rock guitarists from Clapton to Dylan. … Dylan remembered playing King of the Delta Blues Singers, the 1961 LP that rescued Johnson from obscurity: “The vibrations from the loudspeaker made my hair stand up. The stabbing sounds… could almost break a window.”
