We lost a great one Thursday night, B.B. King. He was 89 when he passed away in Las Vegas. King was a 15 time Grammy winner and influenced many with his blues guitar work.
Born Riley B King September 16, 1925 near Itta Bena Mississippi. King got his start with a gospel quartet in Mississippi but moved to Memphis to become a DJ at WDIA. He started playing under the name Beale Street Blues Boy which was later shortened to B.B. King.
This song to me is such a great song combining two legends. As he says in the song, he played the guitar until he died.
Who of today’s musicians will be a legend like B.B. King was?
