Now has 309 albums. We still don't know what he looks like. - JoLeKosovo
Wears KFC buckets, does robot dances, releases an album every week (he currently has 190 albums in his catalog), and is a guitar genius - that's all we know about him. - winner333
Despite the legend he is, there are only two confirmed photos of Robert Johnson in existence. Beautifully put by a music journalist - "It seems nobody has a clue who he really was. They just know his music." - winner333
I'm really so surprised, Only 2 confirmed photographs of him...That's very strange... - Ananya
This man is the stuff legends are made of. Before pursuing a career in music, he disappeared from his hometown only to come back a week or two later with a guitar. People who knew him said that he wasn't really that good before his disappearance, so they think he made a deal with the devil to increase his musical talents (and because his lyrics discuss the matter).
But that's not all. He died at the young age of 27, cause of death unknown (many believe it was poisoning), only two confirmed photos of him exist and has three different graves in three different states all with the same birthdate and death date.
Another musician who dies at the age of 27.
He always wanted to play guitar and the blues but wasn't very good.
One night he went away and came back changed. Acc. to his friends, he seemed to have acquired the mastery of guitar overnight, And when they asked what he had done, He said he met the devil at a crossroad ( In Mississippi ) The devil had tuned the strings of his guitar and given Johnson a talent of guitar in exchange of his soul. He also wrote a song ' Me and the devil' - Ananya
Syd Barret from Pink Floyd. Almost all of us know Syd's sad and strange story. - winner333
The most attractive, charismatic singer did have a dark side of his life... “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” was written about him as well as many other songs.
One of the most private and insane musicians who thinks "mysterious" is a good character trait. - winner333
I'm glad to see Ghost up here. They have a gimmick that mocks the Roman Catholic church, with the singer being a satanic anti-pope. Their music is amazing and has lots of satanism in it, and all the members' identities are secret - ryanrimmel
Everything about the band, including the band members' names is unknown. Their music is quite weird too. - winner333
His guitar playing is mysterious lol. - Userguy44

His interest in the occult and Aliester Crowley (occultist who created the religion of Thelema), and his soundtrack for the "Lucifer Rising" movie. Jimmy's always been a little strange. - winner333
She isn't really mysterious in my opinion. - Userguy44
So beautiful and famous, and yet people don't know a thing about her. Controversial statements about death, feminism and alcohol - shy person but tenacious persona. Nobody is ever sure of her real intentions.
"She just stabs my soul all the time and makes me just want to cry. I love how mysterious she is as well. And I love that she just puts a record out and that’s it.” - Adele
He's a singer with a very rare type of voice - baritenor (baritone voice with tenor range).
His interest in the occult and sex/eroticism comes through in his songs - "frighteningly intense images of doom" and "darkly seductive" (ex. - How The Gods Kill, The One).
Martial arts - Danzig became a student of Jerry Poteet, a world-renowned martial artist in Jeet Kune Do and also earned a teaching degree in the discipline.

His large book collection - subjects including the occult, religious history, horror books, comic books, true murder cases and New World Order related conspiracies.
He started his own company to produce "crazy, violent, erotic comics." (an adult-oriented comic book company called Verotik)

Anything mysterious about this guy, starts with his name. - zxm
Several big secrets - gay, HIV/AIDS,... - Metal_Treasure
Anna is a trans-gender and the leader of the Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows. She/he stays isolated from public life and refuses to perform "in front of humans". Anna's music is just as eerie as her persona. - winner333
Should be higher. He was a depressed guy who cut himself during mayhem concert because he wanted to let escape everyone
I'm genuinely curious to find more about this genius of music. Where does his incredible talent and ability to outdo himself come from? What inspires him to make these deep and haunting pieces? - PositronWildhawk
