Since B.B. started recording in the late 1940's, he has released over 60 albums, many of them considered blues classics. Over the years, B.B. has developed one of the world's most readily identified guitar styles. He borrowed from Lonnie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker and others, integrating his precise vocal like string bends and his left hand vibrato, both of which have become indispensable components of rock guitarist's vocabulary.
B.B. has so far been the recipient of 15 Grammy Awards as well as a Grammy Life Time Achievement Award in 1987. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2006 and is also a member of both the Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2003, Rolling Stone Magazine voted him the 6th greatest guitarist of all time. B.B. continues to play 100 shows per year, and shows no signs of slowing down!
