Robert Johnson Was One Of The Most Inventive Geniuses Of All Time

In a new interview with The New York Times, Bob Dylan spoke about Robert Johnson:

“…What we used to call people of high character. Genuine, plenty talented and who knew themselves, weren’t swayed by anything from the outside. … So was Robert Johnson, even more so. Robert was one of the most inventive geniuses of all time. But he probably had no audience to speak of. He was so far ahead of his time that we still haven’t caught up with him. His status today couldn’t be any higher. Yet in his day, his songs must have confused people. It just goes to show you that great people follow their own path.”
