B.B. King

B.B. King has become one of the most recognized blues guitarists in the world. Surprisingly, he has been a stutterer since he was young, and despite his speech impediment, he was able to sing without a hitch. In his autobiography, released in 1996, he wrote “I struggle with words. Never could express myself the way I wanted. My mind fights my mouth, and thoughts get stuck in my throat. Sometimes they stay stuck for seconds or even minutes. As a child, I stuttered. What was inside couldn’t get out. I’m still not real fluent. I don’t know a lot of good words. Words aren’t my friends. Music is. Sounds, notes, rhythms. I talk through music.”
