B.B. King is another artist like Muddy Waters that really should have been inducted as an early influence not a performer.

Hailed as "The King of the Blues or "The Ambassador of the Blues", the great B.B. King is no doubt the most important electric blues guitarist in the last half of the 20th century. His bent notes and picking style have had an impact on later bluesmen like Robert Cray with his gitty and confident voice and capable of wringing a slight difference from any lyric provided a good match for his passionate playing.

I don't know where to put suggestions for pages on FRL, but I figured this would be an appropriate place to do so, since I'm proposing a page for a fellow bluesman.

FRL- Please add Three O' Clock Blues (1952) to the list of essential songs for B.B. King as it was inducted this month.
