One of the most influential blues musicians of all time, B.B. King is often referred to as the “king of blues,” ranked number six on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. The living legend has spent over sixty years blending blues, jump, jazz, swing, and pop into the unique sound strummed on Lucille, the name given to each of his guitars.

Over the years, King has developed one of the world's most readily identified guitar styles. His precise vocal-like string bends and shimmering left hand vibrato have both become indispensable components of the rock guitarist's vocabulary. King’s economy – his “every note counts” phrasing – has been a model for thousands of players including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and Jeff Beck. In King’s own words, “When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille.”
