The first run of the LHC provided us with many new insights on rare leptonic and semi-leptonic B decays. Highlights were the first observation of Bs --> mu+mu- and improved results on B --> K mu+mu- and B --> K* mu+mu-, including first measurements of many angular observables. In this talk I will discuss the implications of the recent experimental results on rare leptonic and semi-leptonic B decays both model independently and in the context of new physics models. Particular emphasis will be put on possible new physics explanations of the anomaly observed in B --> K* mu+mu-.
