From Vanity Fair (November 2008): “In the seven decades since his mysterious death, bluesman Robert Johnsonâ€™s legend has grownâ€”the tragically short life, the â€œcrossroadsâ€ tale of supernatural talent, the genuine gift that inspired Dylan, Clapton, and other greatsâ€”but his image remains elusive: only two photos of Johnson have ever been seen by the public. In 2005, on eBay, guitar maven Zeke Schein thought heâ€™d found a third. Scheinâ€™s quest to authenticate the picture only led to more questions, both about Johnson himself and about who controls his valuable legacy.”
