231. Albert Collins
An artist who may have had more nicknames than albums, Albert Collins was an Electric Blues star who despite his high level of acclaim in the music world, really didn’t receive any real level of fame until his 50’s. The master of the Stratocaster, Collins was a huge source of influence for other who incorporated Blues Rock in their sound and with the Blues revival in the 80’s, he was able to find an audience that eclipsed him during his first twenty years of recording. Collins died prematurely in 1993 and sadly was unable to enjoy the career that he had deserved.
