In southern black communities it was a well-known notion that one could go to the crossroads and sell one's soul to the devil. The concept dates back to African Folklore.

And so there were always rumors that Robert Johnson had done just that, from lyrics to his song crossroads " I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knee's, I asked the lord above, save poor bob please" and I believe to my soul now,
Poor Bob is sinkin down". Its just a story to explain why all the greats die at 27.
