Once upon a time, in the land of the blues called Mississippi Delta,near the town of Itta Benna, a King was born. On September 16, 1925 Riley B. King began his journey to become the music royalty that he is. In his youth, King sang praises at his hometown church until he moved to Indianola in 1943. By then music was already a big part of what he wants to be and gospel, along with blues and jazz had become his early music influences. His cousin Bukka White, who was a guitarist, taught him how to play blues guitar in Memphis where he started broadcasting his music live on WDIA radio station. The radio station later on hired him to become a record spinner. It was during this time when he earned the on-air handle named B.B. which stands for Blues Boy.
It was not long before B.B. King's multi-faceted talent in music was recognized by listeners and field experts alike. He began spawning hits and continued to establish himself as a blues guitarist and singer/song-writer. He ranks 6th on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. Years passed and half a century after, B.B. King continues to reign as The King of Blues.
