Albert  KIng

With his trademark Gibson Flying V guitar wailing, and a soulful voice (and stature) earning him the tag, “The Velvet Bulldozer,” Albert King was a seminal post-war blues guitarist who changed the face of American music. Signing up with Memphis-based Stax Records in 1966, his 1967 “Born Under a Bad Sign” launched him to stardom. Born Albert Nelson in Indianola, Mississippi, King played guitar left-handed, without re-stringing the guitar from the right-handed setup accounting for his difference in tone. In 1983, he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.
