As much provocateur as journalist Milo is a special figure in the media landscape.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. I am a large fanatic of RJ, Muddy Waters and the Blues in general. It gave some nice in-site into his life and death. There have been so many rumors about RJ and this place some of the myth to rest by separating fact and fiction. I knew there was a Robert Johnson, Jr. who got a settlement from the estate of RJ. There was also a stepson, who gave some nice input into his life. The Blues researchers and musicians who focused on his melody were nice to listen to also. I sincerely suggest it for any Blues enthusiast.
