B.B. King: “I think I’ve done the best I could have done.”

B.B. King, 1948

“I think I’ve done the best I could have done. But I keep wanting to play better, go further. There are so many sounds I still want to make, so many things I haven’t yet done. When I was younger I thought maybe I’d reached that peak. But I’m 86 now, and if I make it through to next month, I’ll be 87. And now I know it can never be perfect, it can never be exactly what it should be, so you got to keep going further, getting better.”

– B.B King, who was known as “The King of the Blues.” B.B. was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and is one of the most important blues musicians ever.
