Riley B. King aka B.B. King (born 16th September 1925)

In 1925 Mr. Riley B. King aka B.B. („Blues Boy“) King was born in Itta Bena, Mississippi, USA. King is one of the most outstanding Blues musicians of all time. In 2011 the magzine Rolling Stone ranked him at number six on its year list of the „100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time„. Eight years before B.B. King was ranked on the third position of this poll.

King’s own description: „When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing my guitar Lucille.“


Jon Brewer directed the documentary film „The Life of Riley“ on the life of B.B. King which features the 88 years old „King of Blues“ and othere legends like Bill Wyman, Bono, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Willis, Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, Dr. John, Eric Clapton, George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Walsh, John Mayer, John Mayall, Johnny Winter, Mick Taylor, Morgan Freeman, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood and Slash – just to name a few 😉
