'Robert Johnson at 100'
Robert Johnson gave his soulas in, his immortal soulto the blues, as in his immortal soul. And who knows if Time Warner services hell, but maybe the 27 Club forefather will be able to strum along to a live feed of this belated 100th birthday party (or at least get Wi-Fi for ?uestlove's live tweets of the event). Why is it belated? Probably the devil's handiwork. That, or the behind-the-scenes machinations of producer-impresario Michael Dorf, whose own deal with the devil probably included this gig as a bargaining chip. The Roots, Chuck D, Bettye Lavette, Taj Mahal, and others will all be at the Apollo to hail Satan.
