B.B. King

BB-King-Rolex-President

There are three undisputed Kings in the world of blues—Albert King, Freddie King and B.B. King. At the tender age of 88, B.B. is the only King still alive. He sings as well as he plays, and is ranked sixth on Rolling Stones’ list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. King’s guitar accompanies the smooth tenor of his singing voice perfectly. In King’s words, “When I sing, I play in my mind. The minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing my guitar.”
