"Some musicians play the blues. Some musicians feel the blues. Some musicians express the blues. B.B. King does all of that and more. Look at this photo I took at the Fillmore West in 1968, concentrate on his face: you hardly have to hear the words to know that B.B. is sharing 'his' blues with you, not simply a song but a tale of a life not always easily lived. Blues music in America has been around for decades; B.B. himself was born in 1925, on a Mississippi cotton plantation, the son of sharecroppers.

As told to @RollingStone by photographer @baronwolman #BBKing
