Albert King Biography (Wikipedia)

Albert Nelson (April 25, 1923 – December 21, 1992), known professionally as Albert King, was an American blues guitarist and singer, whose playing influenced many other blues guitarists. One of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with B.B. King and Freddie King), he is perhaps best known for the 1967 single "Born Under a Bad Sign".

King stood taller than average, with sources reporting 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) or 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), and weighed 250 pounds (110 kg) and was known as "The Velvet Bulldozer" because of his smooth singing and large size.

In May 2013, King was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
