Episode 20 – Jack’s Influences: Robert Johnson

Catch hell with the Third Men Podcast this week as we dive head-first into the Mississippi delta! Jack White has incorporated many different musical influences into his style and sound over the years, but perhaps none quite as prevalent as the Delta Blues. In this first chapter in a continuing series spotlighting those influences, we begin our exploration with the king of the delta blues singers: Robert Johnson. Though he only lived to record a mere 29 songs, Johnson’s eerie and compelling voice, impeccable charisma, rock’n’roll lifestyle and supernatural guitar-playing abilities score him a special place in not only Jack White’s world, but in the music world at large. PLUS: We give Third Woman Kali Durga the 99th degree as she schools us on some other key delta blues elements of Jack White’s catalog. Said my God we’re gonna podcast your brains out – it’ll make ya lose your mind!
