BB King was born Riley B. King on this day September 16, 1925 in Itta Bena, Mississippi.  The reality that you can still see a legend live in person, like BB King is just mind blowing, and he play’s a lot of shows.  So get out there and see this man, he is awesome in concert!  Rolling Stone Magazine in its 2003 listing has BB King as the third Greatest Guitar player of all time.  First and second is Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman.  From my calculations he is 43 years old in this video but he sure looks a lot younger then that.  Thanks to brucutu30 for the cool Jazz Blues.  Here is BB King, King of the Blues with Sonny Freeman- Drums, James Toney- Organ, Mose Thomas- Trumpet and Lee Gatling on Sax in 1968 on Ralph Gleason’s Jazz Casual. enjoy!
