"Absorbing commentary on the legendary blues singer (and) his terrifyingly sad songs." - Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Hellhounds On My Trail: The Afterlife of Robert Johnson is a heartfelt tribute to the influential and legengary bluesman Robert Johnson (1911-1938). In his short life, Johnson managed to create some of the most powerful blues ever recorded. His music has not only had a lasting effect on blues musicians of all generations, but also has had a major influence on rock and roll as well as folk, country and jazz artists alike.

The film is centered around the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's annual American Music Masters series, a week-long group of events dedicated to an artist who has considerably impacted the evolution of popular music. Hellhounds features performances of Johnson's work by some of the top names in popular music including: The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir with bassists Rob Wasserman; Grammy Award winner Keb' Mo'; Johnson's stepson and blues great Robert Lockwood Jr.; Joe Louis Walker with Billy Branch; David 'Honeyboy' Edwards; Tracy Nelson, Marcia Ball & Irma Thomas; Rory Clock; Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green with Nigel Watson; Chris Whitley and Henry Townsend among others.
