Riley B. King, American blues musician, better known as B.B. King, was born on this day, September 16, 1925. King started out as a singer and disc jockey at WDIA by the nickname Beale Street Blues Boy, which later became Blues Boy and eventually B.B. Today, King is known as one of the most influential blues guitarists in all of history. King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Throughout his career, King had performed more than 200 concerts every year until he reached his seventies. King still continues to play several shows a year with his heart in the blues. Celebrate his birthday with his performance of The Thrill is Gone in this video at Montreux, 1993.
“And if you call me at 4 am, too sad to even say hello, I will listen to your silence until you fall asleep. If you need to cry I will not wipe your tears away because you are only human and sometimes tears are as close to laughter as you can get and that’s okay. If you get sleepy I will let you drool on my arm and I won’t laugh at you if you snore too loud. If you need to yell so hard that your voice cracks and your knees fail I will hold you up and yell with you. If you get so angry you punch your hands red I will ice your knuckles and tell you that wounds heal both inside and out, and just like the cold that is harsh and burning, I will always be the warmth to soothe you and make you feel better. I will love you.”
