79-Year-Old Beverly Watkins Is the 'Queen of the Blues Guitar'
This 79-year-old woman rocks harder than you.
Beverly “Guitar” Watkins has been called the “Queen of the Blues Guitar” by Guitar World Magazine. In her long musical career, she’s worked with artists including James Brown, Ray Charles, and B.B. King. The review of her 2005 album “The Feelings of Beverly Guitar Watkins” called her a “…pyrotechnic guitar maven whose searing, ballistic attacks on the guitar have become allegorical tales within the blues community.”
A video of Watkins playing the guitar went viral after it was filmed at the “Ladies Rock Camp 2019” in Atlanta, GA, and shows that she can shred with the best of them.
