Willie "Sonny Boy" King: Alabama Bluesman $12.00


"As for my advice to kids today, they are worried too much about what kind of guitar they have. I tell them, as long as it got the strings on it, play it. The guitar does not play itself. You got to play it. But the most important thing is you have to treat people right, to get treated right.” -Willie "Sonny Boy" King
