I think he's under appreciated. To most people, he's just the blues guy with the most recognizable name, but what makes him spectacular is subtle and generally glossed over by non-players. It was a toss-up between B.B. and Albert for me. I just love Albert with his monster bends and his cut-through steel tone. I figured B.B. would be getting his fair share of votes anyways, but I guess not.
