Robert Lockwood Jr., named after his real father, was taught to play guitar
by Robert Johnson, who was living with Lockwood's mother, Esther.  Growing
up in Blues rich Helena, he became known locally as "Robert Jr." because of
his relationship with his better known "stepdad".  However, Mr. Lockwood
today prefers to be known by his correct name... Robert Lockwood Jr.
