Charlie Patton was one of the first mainstream stars of the Delta blues genre. He is credited with creating an enduring body of American music such as the classic standards "Pony Blues", "Mississippi Boll Weevil Blues", "A Spoonful Blues", "Banty Rooster Blues" and "Down The Dirt Road". He died of heart disease on a plantation near Indianola, Mississippi. In 1990, musician John Fogerty bought Patton's grave marker. In 2003, his re-mastered boxed set recording "Screamin' and Hollerin' the Blues", won three Grammy Awards for Best Historical Album.
