BB King Net Worth $30 Million

B.B. King’s Net Worth is $30 million. This really is valid, and no surprise here, as the more than accomplished 88 years old Blues legend has dedicated his whole adult life to music. A perfect guitarist as well as a one-of-a-kind vocalist and songwriter, B. B. King is among the most powerful musicians alive today.

In 1949, King signed his first recording contract with RPM Records in Los Angeles and by the end of 1950 he was already the main name in R&B music. Going on a huge selection of music tours, acquiring Grammy Awards and with his hit songs all over, from radio stations to Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, in 1956 King created his own record label in Memphis — Blues Boys Kingdom.

Born on September 16, 1925 near Berclair, Mississippi, King was married only twice, but he’s the presumed father of 15 children. A skilled private pilot, King was diagnosed over 20 years past with type II diabetes. Regardless of his diabetes, he never laid low.

Is BB King's Net Worth Deserved?

    Hell yes! People bought his tickets and albums because they loved his music and entertainment. Unlike our government who takes whatever they want from us. BB King paid the price for his fortune! I, for one, will miss him dearly…….

    This article was interesting. it was also difficult to read in some areas due to the manner in which it is written; the wording in some areas, as well as present tense words which were used in place of past tense words.
