(Where is) The Soul of a Man?
Courtesy of: Texas Psychedelic Rock.
Due to some diligent work on the part of music scholar Jack Ortman, Beaumont Texas historians believe they have found the final resting place of sanctified blues singer Blind Willie Johnson. Plans are to erect a fitting monument in the pauper's field in which Johnson is intered by late 2010.
Next time you are in Beaumont, stop on by and pay your respects to the man that, for all intents and purposes gave the 'Power Chord' to the world.
