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. Therfore he had many nicknames such as the "Ice Man" and "The Master of the Telecaster".
