Why did I use the names of these 2 artists as the title of this blog? For they had nothing in common.
Well that is not entirely true. Both were born in Mississippi and both died on the 16th of August, Elvis 40 years ago today and Robert Johnson 79 year ago today. Both were pioneers in their music genre.
Also they both shaped my musical taste. It is a simple fact that there will never be any stars of their magnitude again.
Elvis was and is the undisputed King of Rock N Roll.
Whereas Robert Johnson was and is the undisputed King of the Blues.
Both men were legends and met untimely deaths and both were victims of circumstance.
I will not go to deep into their lives because there is nothing more that I can add to their stories. Below are 2 blogs though I have done in the past.
Let’s celebrate their lives with some of their music.
RIP Elvis and Robert. Thank you for the music
