The legendary B.B. King would’ve turned 92 today (September 16), and out of all of the things we admire about the guitar great, it was his willingness to collaborate with different artists his entire career.

King recorded/performed with countless musicians in his illustrious career, so choosing just a handful of songs to make a playlist was rather daunting.  Alas, here’s seven of our favorite B.B. King collaborations.
