Essentially the Jimi Hendirx of blues. Considered by many to be one of the most influencial guitarists (Blues or otherwise) of all time and the undisputed king of blues.
He and Jimi collaborated on a few songs, and if he were dead, he would be considered an equal to the late Jimi Hendrix.
His birth name is Riley King, but changed his name to Blues Boy.
Greatest guitarists of all time (in no particular order)
Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Tony Iommi, Eric Clapton, Randy Rhoads and ummm....Jesus
The greatest guitar player EVER, is so AWSOME and has one of the coolest guitars of all time!!
B B King is tha greatest!
Easily the greatest performing guitarist today, and arguably ever. B can be traced to virtually every blues and rock guitarist, and has influenced such greats as Jimi Hendrix, Tinsley Ellis,Johnny Copeland, Albert King, And Stevie Ray Vaughn. B.B. is often credited with inventing the sound and style of electric blues, and, although 80 years of age now, is still a total badass on the guit-fiddel.
I saw B.B. King live today, and there were bags under our chairs to catch the drippings in the event of a face melting solo
I creamed my Jeans several times during my air guitar session along with my favorite B.B. King Album
If Jimmy Page and B.B. king shared a stage, the music that would ensue would demolish the assholes of everyone within a 500 billion mile radius.
Bare-Back King - A dude who loves to have sex (with any and everyone) without using a condom.
