    I guess that proves that SOMEONE sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads...

    Yeah,

    and I bet he wears a suit and works at HBO. Are there no musicians that could take this role?? On another board I saw Keb Mo or Chris King mentioned. They have both acted and ARE musical. I guess we're lucky it's not Bobby Brown.

    Keb Mo already starred in one:

    Can't You Hear the Wind Howl: Life & Music of Robert Johnson (1997)

    It's sort of a documentary with Keb Mo recreating certain moments in Johnson's life.

    I once visited the grave of Robert Johnson and had a really strange experience. I will not go into details but I will say a left there in a hurry. I also visited Sonny Boy Williamson's grave earlier that day.

    well that's just creepy.

    this is just funny:

    New Rap Song Samples 'Billie Jean' In Its Entirety, Adds Nothing
    NEW YORK—On Thursday, rapper and producer Sean "Puffy" Combs released "Tha Kidd (Is Not My Son)," a hotly anticipated new single that samples Michael Jackson's 1983 smash "Billie Jean" in its entirety and adds nothing. "When I was in the studio mixing and recording, I decided 'Tha Kidd' would work best if I kept all the music and vocals from the original version and then didn't rap over it," Combs said. "So what I did is put in a tape with 'Billie Jean' on it, and then I hit the record button. It turned out great." Combs' current number-one hit, "Eye Of The Tiger," is dedicated to slain rapper Notorious B.I.G.

    I thought CTK did a fine job of "Tommy" Johnson in the O Brother, Where Art Thou. He would have been a fine musician for the part. I guess they figure Puffy will bring in more $$$$$.

    Or Ben Harper as Robert Johnson

    That guy can play!
    I visited SRVs grave while on a business trip, it's right next to his Daddys. I guess some other folks were inspired by Stevie overcoming his addictions; there must have been a pack of cigarettes broken in half and tossed on the grave. I got down on my hands and knees in the mud and cleaned them up. Ruined my suit pants, but I was just doing one kind favor for a friend.
