Blind Willie Johnson

The man’s stepmother threw lye in his face when he was 7. Ry Cooder idolizes him. His music was launched into space for aliens to find as an indication of the art that humans have created. He sings about God with a voice like a cheese grater and a slide like a harp.

Find him and listen to him.
