Albert Collins (born October 1, 1932, Leona, TX, USA - died November 24, 1993, Las Vegas, NV, USA) was an American blues guitarist, singer and (occasional) harmonica player. Husband of Gwendolyn Collins (married in 1968).
Collins was the embodiment of the Texas blues guitar style, using non-standard tuning, and slashing out blocked chords and sharp flurries of treble notes to produce an "ice-cold" sound from his Fender Telecaster as a consequence, he had many nicknames such as the "Ice Man" and "The Master of the Telecaster".
