Guitar Player - October 2015 - B.B. King
Guitar Player – October 2015 – B.B. King
The October issue of Guitar Player celebrates the majesty of the late great B.B. King.
King had been a huge part of the extended Guitar Player family from the beginning. We first featured him in 1969, and continued talking with him well into the 2000s (his last cover feature was October 2000). He’s in our Gallery of the Greats, and the great man would occasionally stop by the office to jam back in the magazine’s early days. This issue is a tribute to a Blues King, a Jazz King, to B.B. King 1925 – 2015.
