B.B.KING

Post by LEATHERSTOCKING » Mon May 18, 2015 7:08 pm

The late, great B.B.King`s real first name was Riley, does anyone know what his middle name was? The B.B. stood for Blues Boy.

Very off topic Forrest, but a bloody good question! While I did enjoy the man's music I have no clue of his middle name.

Really? Is that Ben as in "Benjamin" or Ben as in "ben the hoose"?

Are you revealing the undiscovered evidence of proto-rave culture in the 1940s blues scene? "Ladies and gentlemen, wave your hands in the air - BB King is ben da hooose! Massiiiiive!"

According to THIS, the B wasn't an abbreviation!
