At 85 years of age, having gigged some 15,000 times and garnered countless awards, titles and honorariums — well, if B.B. King isn’t a music legend, nobody is. King, whose initials are shorthand for “Beale Street Blues Boy,” has lived a life rivaling such mythological bluesmen as Robert Johnson and “Blind” Willie McTell. For instance, he once rescued a guitar from a club set ablaze when two brawling men knocked over a barrel of kerosene (he named the guitar Lucille, after the woman they were fighting over). Ranked third on Rolling Stone’s all-time guitar greats, King’s style — slinky, vibrato-tinged, with sudden runs and bends — brought electric guitar to the modern blues, and visa versa. Watch him go at 7:30pm Wednesday, Nov. 3, when he graces Hult Center; $39-$69, tickets at www.theshedd.org or 434-7000.
