There have been many kings in rock. But there is only one true King of the Blues — and that would be the incomparable B.B. King. King, who started performing in the 1940s before there was even music called rock & roll, has influenced almost all blues and blues rock guitarists to follow him.
You can learn how more about B’B. King, his music, and his influence by picking up and reading my new book Come Together: How the Baby Boomers, the Beatles, and a Young Counterculture Combined to Create the Music of the Woodstock Generation.
