Robert “Junior” Lockwood Photos

Robert Lockwood, Jr., A.K.A. Robert Junior Lockwood, (March 27, 1915 – November 21, 2006) is a true legend of blues guitar. The stepson and student of Robert Johnson and a heralded session musician for Chess and J.O.B. Records, Robert Jr. has influenced all blues guitarists after him. His fretwork is an integral part of many of the classic recordings of Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Eddie Boyd, Sunnyland Slim, and many more. Bob first met Robert Jr. in the mid ’70s and has produced recordings with him since 1979. No blues guitarist deserves more respect than the great Robert Junior Lockwood.
