Albert Collins (October 1, 1932 – November 24, 1993) was a blues guitarist, singer and musician. He had many nicknames from fans, such as "The Ice Man" and "The Master of the Telecaster".

Born in Leona, Texas, Collins was a distant relative of Lightnin' Hopkins and grew up learning about music and playing guitar. Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, he absorbed the blues sounds and styles from Texas, Mississippi and Chicago. His style would soon envelope these sounds.
