T-Bone influenced BB and countless others. He's ground zero for electric blues.

No T-Bone. No Jimi.
This is the foundation of blues guitar. T Bone has touched so many artists. God bless you T Bone Walker.

Beautiful, simply beautiful.  T-Bone was so influential, even moving outside of pure blues into r&b, rock, country, jazz (he played and recorded with a major west coast jazz band, Les Hite, for several years).  And he stood in direct line to older innovators and the earliest blues recording artists, coming from Texas and having been one of Blind Lemon Jefferson's 'guide boys' as a child.
