Robert Johnson a one man band

What amazes me most about delta blues legend Robert Johnson is that he traveled alone with no backup. Keith Richards once asked, “who’s the other guy playing with him?”, referring to RJ’s powerful and intricate guitar play. It’s just RJ, though: No rhythm guitar, no bass, no drums. And he carried it along as good or better than any band or orchestra of the time. He was his own orchestra.
