Certainly looks much more like BB than Robert for sure, Terry.

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate you taking the time to have a look and leaving your opinion on the images I posted.

Cheers,

Terry

Ok and when we've decided that it's not BB King, what famous guitar player are we gonna go with next?

Would that be the Royal we or just some tossers on this forum?

Everyone's patience & interest on this subject seems to have passed its limit but I'm always riled by it. RJ is also a bit overkilled for the Weenie crowd as well, don't sweat the negative reaction too much. I haven't seen anyone do such a comparison with images as you have Terry, good job. Without doing such a close comparison the gentleman just never looked like RJ to me, for the reasons you've already stated.

I still find this interesting from an anatomy point of view. All the pics of BB King have a heavier glabella (between the eyebrows and above the nose) than any of the pictures of RJ. But then i don't think the two pics of RJ are the same person either.

My guess is that Henderson Chatmon and two or three other badass wandering dudes of his era fathered 95% of the top Southern players.....hence lots of confusion since..... ;)

Based on this and other analyses and conclusions on this topic - here and elsewhere- please remind me if I should ever commit a crime and get caught and have an alternative to a jury in the form of plea bargain deal, to plead guilty and take the plea bargain deal. Thank you.  :(

For those that are still interested in the photo that ain't  Robert Johnson.
 
1. BB King looking left instead of straight ahead.
2. BB King now looking straight ahead instead of left.
Swapped the eyes, clever in it.



And a little bonus, BB king looking down at the photo taken of him earlier and wondering how the fuck Johnny Shines got there  O0



Cya,

Terry

Terry,

1:  BB King has apparently said it's not him.  He ought to know.
2:  If you read through the original posts on this photo, you'll see that the way the clothes button indicates that the photo has been reversed, and the guy with the guitar is holding it as if he's a lefty.

This is two unknown guys who were not guitar players getting their picture taken with an old prop guitar.  End of story.

Tenaciousness will only get you so far if you're driving down a dead-end street.  It's time to give this topic a rest.

1. Do you have any evidence of BB King saying it's not him? I doubt it.
2. It was suggested that the other guy was reversed. Johnnie Shines daughter said it was him, she ought to know.

I've provided you with a wealth of evidence that clearly shows the guy to be BB King, it's only your stubbornness to take a proper look at the evidence that prevents you from seeing that. It's quite clearly him  O0

Terry, you come onto this forum, your first post is the equivalent of an Obama birth certificate thread that the entire internet is tired of, some understandable sarcasm ensues, you call members tossers, the thread is locked, and you start a new thread and then get belligerent again. You've clearly made what you believe is your point. Now it's time to move on or we -- meaning the administrators of the website and forum -- will have to ban your account.
