Birth of The Blues - "The crossroads near Dockery's"





Rt. 8 east of Cleveland, Mississippi,

down a gravel road and past a graveyard,

is a crossroads.

On Dockery's Plantation was the home of Charley Patton

The master bluesman that Robert Johnson

went looking for to show him how to play the guitar.

Patton shunned young Robert away

due to Johnson's lack of ability.

Robert took this path in the video

late that same night as he left Patton's totally dejected.

The rest is history, and one of the most popular urban legends of all time.
