Sorry to hear but he was going downhill fast so hopefully he didn't suffer too long. Great legend.

Time to hang up Lucille. RIP.

Obituary: BB King


Quote:
His vibrato style of playing influenced a generation of rock and blues guitarists, including Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Rolling Stone magazine once ranked BB King in third place in its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time, just below Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman.

His output crossed musical barriers, from jazz and blues to mainstream pop.

He was born Riley B King in Indianola, Mississippi, on 16 September 1925. His parents were sharecroppers and, as a young boy, he helped them work in the fields.

The family struggled. "When you live in a house that you can always peek out of and see what kind of day it is," King later said, "you're not doing so well."

The sound of his co-workers hollering the blues was his first introduction to the style of music that he was to help take from a purely black American audience into the mainstream.

RIP. The dude's voice will always be one of a kind. A true pioneer and such a nice man when I had the chance to talk with him before a show. He and my convo with John Wooden are huge highlights of my life still.

An absolute legend. He will be missed, but his creations and what he did for music will last on forever.

One of my all-time favorite artists. Was fortunate enough to see him play a few times.

Go and see these older artists whenever you can. Don't put it off if you don't have to. You never know how much longer we'll have them.
