The story of Robert Johnson stands as one of the founding myths not just of the blues, but of the rock genre it eventually, if carelessly, spawned. While I can't think of any other musicians murdered, as Johnson supposedly was, by drinking strychnine-laced whisky (courtesy of a jealous husband), there are plenty who have claimed to have sold their soul to the Devil in exchange for their musical chops. In fact, it is the most intriguing detail of that "crossroads" myth that Charles Shaar Murray picks up on in his debut novel: the manner in which the Devil transmits his wicked fretboard skills.

Tito Burns: 1940s bandleader who went on to manage Cliff Richard and promote the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix
Friday 17 September 2010
Tito Burns was an accordionist and bandleader who found success in the 1940s and then became a noted agent, manager and impresario with Cliff Richard, the Searchers, the Zombies, Victor Borge and Sacha Distel among his clients. His attitude was to "take it while you can as it might not be there tomorrow" and his wheeling and dealing was filmed in 1965 by DA Pennebaker for the Bob Dylan documentary Don't Look Back. He was satirised as "Tito Bums" by the Goodies.
