From Jimi to BB

iPhone sized wallpaper I made of the Jimster

Marc Silber (owner, the Fretted Instruments Shop) ; “Once I asked him for advice on who to study electric blues from, Jimi said, ‘It’s only a matter of the three Kings.’ I remember thinking this was some sort of Christian reference but eventually I realised he meant Albert King, Freddie King and B.B. King.

[extracted from Eyewitness Hendrix by Johnny Black]

If you click on the Gibson on the right; B.B. King describes how he came to name his guitar Lucille.
