They called him the “The Ice Man” and “The Master of the Telecaster,” but above all else, Albert Collins was a consummate Texas bluesman. He was born in the tiny east Texas town of Leona, but he grew up in the infamous inner city Third Ward of Houston, where he picked a little acoustic guitar around his cousin Lightnin’ Hopkins and fellow future guitarists Johnny Copeland and Johnny “Guitar” Watson. “Ice Man” or not, Albert was on fire the night of his taping on October 28, 1991.
