New image of Robert Johnson surfaces

Purportedly making a deal with the Devil down is enough to cement one’s status as a legend. And Robert Johnson’s mystique has always been enhanced by the fact that there have historically existed only two verifiable images of the blues man. Now a third photograph of the guitarist has appeared. From popphoto.com:

The Getty Images Hulton Archive recently restored and published a third image of the infamous blues singer. Seen standing next to fellow musician Johnny Shines, the photo was donated to Getty Images by Johnson’s estate.

Take a look at the shot at popphoto.com.
