A restoration to the original condition. A name given to the theological belief that a time will come when all free creatures will share in the grace of salvation, even the devils and lost souls. According to this dogma, the reason hell exists is to separate good from evil in the soul. It is therefore not an eternal punishment, but an amelioration. A time will come when all evil shall cease to be, since it has no existence of its own apart from the free will.

An alter ego of Doors lead singer Jim Morrison, to imitate a Native American shaman. Shamans identified strongly with an animal deity. Jim chose the lizard, which included the ability to shed his skin (leather pants, which he wore chronically). It may also be said he chose a Tyrannosaurus rex for "dinosaur fear" -- the theory that we have a genetic memory from the time when dinosaurs not only ruled the earth, but also snacked on our furry ancestors.

References to the "Lizard King" and his greeting have since appeared in pop culture and entertainment, such as role-playing and computer games, animated cartoons, comics and literature.

Due to Hurricane Katrina, a large number of New Orleans musicians could be relocated to Houston. This could be a major movement, similar to the Great Migration of southern blues artists up the Mississippi to Chicago and all points in between, c. 1914-1945. A richer, storied heritage combined with the progressive culture and entertainment dollars Houston offers. This could be big.
Houston and New Orleans have always shared a regional popular music tradition. Blues, rock, zydeco, soul, gospel, R&B. Mix in some Big Easy jazz and Texas conjunto. Hayail yayass!!!

"The King of the Delta Blues Singers" Arguably the single most influential musician of the 20th century. Born c. May 8, 1911 in Hazelhurst, Mississippi.

Wrote 29 songs that were recorded in San Antonio, Texas in November 1936 and Dallas, Texas in June 1937. Among them was "Cross Road Blues" which fueled the myth that he sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his guitar and vocal skills.

Robert Johnson is important because he personified the most popular songwriting, vocal and guitar styles of the Mississippi Delta and played the music better than anyone before. He profoundly influenced the mid-century blues artists of Memphis, St. Louis and Chicago, thereby planting the seed that became rock 'n roll.

Died in obscurity c. August 16, 1938 in Greenwood, Mississippi -- one month before John Hammond Sr. located him to play a national tour. He was 27 at the time of his death, preceding Bryan Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and other members of the 27 Club.
Robert Johnson wrote "Sweet Home Chicago," "Love in Vain," "Stop Breakin' Down," "Traveling Riverside Blues" and "Dust My Broom."
