ロバート・ジュニア・ロックウッド

ホーム > ブルース人名録 >

経歴・特徴

ロバート・ジョンソンが自分の母親と暮らしていたため、わずか三、四歳年下なだけだったが「ロバート・ジョンソンの義理の息子」という肩書きをもつロックウッド。その音楽スタイルは、たしかにジョンソンを出発点としたものだった。ロックウッドはまだほんの十五歳の時からハーモニカのサニー・ボーイ・ウィリアムスンIIの伴奏者として、ミシシッピやアーカンソーで旅をしながら生活していた。41年にシカゴでブルーバード向けレコーディングを行なったが、じきに南部へ戻って、ヘレナのラジオ局、KFFAで生放送のブルース番組の仕事を始めた。50年代にはシカゴに移住。重要なセッション・ギタリストとして活躍。リトル・ウォルターサニー・ボーイのバックで名人芸を残している。人気ピアニスト、オーティス・スパンのソロ・アルバム『オーティス・スパン・イズ・ザ・ブルース』でも見事なギターでバックアップ。「マイ・デイリー・ウィッシュ」など数曲で歌も歌った。60年代に、シカゴからクリーヴランドに移り、サニー・ボーイらと活動。70年代以降、ギルドの12弦のエレキを使いはじめたが、偉大なミュージシャンは人と違うことをしたがるということか。
