B.B. KING 2019 fine art print / edition of 25 / $165.00

B.B. King redefined soulful blues in the second half of the 20th century. His style was smooth and impassioned, dignified and direct. His guitar was ever-present, but while B.B. sang, the guitar was essentially an ornament. When he stopped singing, he made the guitar sing.

One of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with Albert and Freddie), B.B. could effortlessly glide across a fretboard and through the friendly skies—he had an FAA-certified pilot's license and often flew himself to gigs.

B.B.'s was the quintessential cotton-fields to Las Vegas story. (Born on a plantation in Mississippi, died in Vegas after health issues caused the cancellation of gigs at age 89.)

We could recount a thousand more facts about King, but you can easily read more comprehensive chronicles in his Wiki profile or at AllMusic, which is where we'd be inclined to steal biographical details. But you won't see this original Drew Friedman portrait of the blues legend at either site.
