Before the days of rappers and mixtapes, there was just good old fashioned rhythm and blues. And before the days of producers and drum machines, there was just a man and his guitar. At the front of that genre, was blues star B.B. King. Ranked as the 6th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine, King is best known for his countless singles and inspiration of what has now become the modern day Hip Hop and R&B genre. You can check out one of the King’s biggest albums, King Of The Blues, below, as we remember the legacy of one of the greatest musicians of all time.
