Today in September 16, 1925, B.B. King was born in the rural Mississippi Delta. The king of the blues is 86 years young today, and still touring and entertaining crowds across the world. Thank you, B.B., for being the most prolific blues man alive. We continue to celebrate the amazing life of a man who has the distinct honor of having one of the biggest hearts in show business.
