Writer Pete Welding in the blues history "Bluesland" sums it up best:
"His music, born of his vision, worried into perfrection over years of hard meticulous work, has shaped and colored the whole of the modern blues to the degree that virtually no performer of the music since his time has escaped the pull of its all-persuasive influence. He has become the single most popular and successful of all blues performers of modern times. The real foundatioin of his music, no less than his great success, has been the direct, earthy fundamentalism of the blues which he continues to perform with a brilliant, fervent contemporaneity of feeling as have few others."
B.B. King is in the eighth decade of his life (he turned 80 in 2005) and can probably lay claim to being Ameria's most active senior. King is in his seventh decade as a performer, having moved from small town street corner for nickels and dimes to big city concert halls for top dollar. As a recording artist, he celebrates his sixth decade, with million sellers and 14 Grammy Awards on his resume. B.B. King is, and remains, a force of nature, still at the top of his game and still looking down new musical avenues in which to present his brand of the blues. And, as eer, he lives his life by clicking of the odometer. Not B.B.. King the road less traveled.
