I have always wondered, if there has ever been any huge musicians (past/present), who never knew any chords at all?

All who i've heard is Elvis?

Quoi?

Elvis played nothing BUT chords...Carl Perkins did all the fancy stuff. I once heard BB King say he couldn't play chords...on telly, he didn't come round for a cup of tea and a jaffa cake or anything like that. He probably can though, but says he can't so he gets to play lead all the time.
Actually called Mark!

3 notes = 1 chord...so it's pretty much impossible.

I've seen a video where B.B. talks about the fact that he does know chords, but his knowledge of them isn't as broad as he wished it to be...if I remember correctly, he said his biggest regret in learning guitar was not spending enough time with them.

Well I'm sure there's loads of wind instrument players who have never played chords.

Would you do it?

What would you do?

I honestly dont know how thats possible, at any rate. If you dont know chords, chances are you dont have any idea where to start when writing a song.

No one said anything about physical ability to play chords. Anyone with fingers could randomly push down on a few strings and strum. The question was about musicians knowing chords.
