B.B. King Background
B.B. King, born Riley B. King, spent his childhood in Mississippi, where he sang in the
gospel choir at his church and started learning how to play the guitar at the young age of 12. Throughout his childhood, King
was always performing and playing his tunes to whoever would listen, and he knew from the get-go that he needed to pursue
his dreams of becoming a professional musician no matter what it took. He moved to West Memphis, Arkansas in 1948, where he
became a regular performer on Sonny Boy Williamson's radio program, which helped him garner an enthusiastic local fan base.
He soon became an in-demand performer on several different radio shows, including on the Memphis radio station WDIA. He became
such a popular draw on the radio that he became a disc jockey and singer at the WDIA, earning the nickname Beale Street Blues
Boy. He later shortened this name to Blues Boy, and later to B.B, eventually deciding on his stage name, B.B. King.
1949, King had gained such outstanding recognition as a radio personality and performer that he decided it was time to take
the next step in his career, so he signed with RPM Records and started recording his own songs. He became one of the biggest
blues performers in the entire world, and kept cranking out phenomenal tunes and touring heavily to promote himself as an
artist. In 1956, King broke records for his heavy year of touring, performing at an incredible 342 shows in just one year!
During the Fifties, King released countless hit tunes, such as "3 O'Clock Blues", "You Know I Love You", "Every Day I Have
the Blues", "Sweet Little Angel", and many more. With so many hit songs in the 1950s, King started to earn the reputation
as one of the biggest sensations in not just blues, but in music in general.
There's no doubt about the fact that B.B.
King has created a phenomenal legacy. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has been awarded 15 Grammy
Awards, has been inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, and has been widely regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time.
