He was blind, homeless, sick and sad, but remember: This song left the solar system.

The stars we look at are already dead.....think about that. How fitting. Rip Mr Willie Johnson. From one blues man to another, thank you. Your struggles where not in vain. Love you my brother.

Just think, the only reason the vast majority of us know about this song is because it was slapped onto a golden record shot into space. This song would have gone completely under the radar if not for Voyager. Now I wonder how many other sounds exist out there, just like this one. How many other blind, homeless, destitute individuals retiring to a scrap of newspaper in the cold, musty night after playing a tune on the old six-string.
