I Just Stopped by to See the Man archive"Tonight I'm up on stage. Robert Johnson number. I'm singing it and it hits me. Crossroads. That's where he'd go. He'd go to live at the crossroads." Jesse Davidson, last of the Delta blues singers, died in 1886. But legends continue to surround him - like the story about him selling his soul to the devil so that he could play guitar. And the story that he isn't dead at all. When an English rock band hits town, their leader comes looking for the truth and triggers a confrontation of mythic proportions.
