Rolling Stone magazine rated him at No. 6 on its 2011 list of the 100 best guitarists of all time (formerly rated No. 3 in the 2003 version of the same list), and he was rated No. 17 in Gibson’s “”Top 50 Guitarists of All Time””. Based on Edward M. Komara, King “”introduced a refined style of soloing based on liquid string bending and shimmering vibrato that would affect almost every electric blues guitarist that followed.”” King was also inducted into 2014 group of the R&B Music Hall of Fame. King can also be known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing at 250300 concerts annually until his seventies. King continues to appear at 100 shows a year. Over time, King has developed among the world’s most identifiable guitar styles. He borrowed from Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker and others, incorporating his exact and intricate vocal-like string bends and his left hand vibrato, both of which have become essential elements of rock guitarists’ vocabulary. His market and phrasing has been a model for thousands of musicians. King has combined blues, jazz, swing, mainstream pop and jump into a unique sound. In King’s words, “”When I sing, I play in my head; the minute I quit singing orally, I begin to sing by playing Lucille.
