You Better Come On In My Kitchen. It's Gonna Be Rainin' Outdoors

Robert Johnson recorded 16 songs at the Gunter Hotel in San Antonio in 1936. He died at the age of 27 under mysterious circumstances. Other musicians in the Greenwood, Mississippi area at the time of his death said they believed he had been poisoned with strychnine placed in an open bottle of whiskey by a jealous man. Over the course of 3 days, Mr. Johnson suffered agonizing pain before he passed.

His work as a singer-songwriter has inspired many rockers, including Mr. Eric Clapton, who has immortalized Mr. Johnson's "Crossroads."

If Robert Johnson wasn't from Texas, well, he got here as quick as he could, as they say in Ostentatious, capital of The People's Republic of Travis County.

So long, 2010; you put on a hell of a show and followed all the rules you find in the average knife fight. It's been real.
