A story everyone should know...
1 May 2019 | by Austin7397See all my reviews

Was slightly hesitant to watch this documentary because I'm not extremely familiar with Blues history but then I thought that's even more of a reason to watch and I'm so glad I did. Just hearing the trials and tribulations Johnson went through lends a higher amount of respect to his music and himself as a person than can even be imagined. What a fantastic musician and also adds more fuel to the fire for all of you conspiracy theory folks out there. A MUST WATCH!
