“BB really helped us get going. He was probably the most popular blues artist in the ‘70s. He had a couple of hits back then – Sweet Little Angel and The Thrill Is Gone. All his stuff is so good.
“We used to play his songs in our set when we were doing the clubs every night. He was a great influence on all of us. BB King’s quite a role model to anybody who loves the blues.
“As a guitar player, he’s got that sound and that feel. Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and those guys – I love it when you hear a few notes and you know who it is. With BB, I think you can tell in one note.”
