I Went Down To The Crossroads

Post by PhineasQP » Sun May 19, 2013 6:57 pm

Satan said I was the first to actually do it; everyone else had backed out at the last minute, despite what the legends say. Paganini, Robert Johnson and the others had all chickened out before the transaction was made. Each had eventually achieved greatness through love of the music and unrelenting determination.

But not me. I made the deal. And now I play guitar like no one else ever has.

Thing is, I can't get signed, and nobody even wants me in their band. They all say the same thing:
"Yeah, he's technically amazing... but the dude's got no soul."
What the what?
