    The 'King of the Blues' guitarist and singer, BB King, has died aged 89

    King, known for his hits Lucille, Sweet Black Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas.

    Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s. He went on to influence a generation of musicians, working with Eric Clapton and U2.

    Once ranked as the third greatest guitarist of all time, he had been suffering ill health in recent months.

    He was recently taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness.

    Man...this is a piece of my childhood gone. I remember when my momma and her friend use to sit with their home brew and listen to B.B, Muddy, etc. Also, I use to walk pass record stores on 63rd st and hear "The Thrill is Gone" playing.

    You know he had diabetes for the longest, he did a few commercials in the 90's (I think) advertising a testing device.


    Peace!

    It's a shame that we have let this part of us go by the wayside. BB, Muddy, Wolf, etc influenced and helped a lot of white rockers. I like the fact that they are not afraid to give credit where credit is due. I remember reading somewhere (I think it was Keith Richards) it said that we (blacks) don't know what we have, and we are throwing it away as if it was nothing. IMO, it's true. Whites permeated these concerts that these blues legends put on.

    I have a vid of him talking about how he was booed at the Apollo when he first played. He said when they said the blues, folks booed.

    He said it was like being black twice...:lol:

    Peace!

    WoW! I like that Enki ... @He said it was like being black twice... :wow:

    Your comments made me think of my boy, Jimi Hendrix. Its shameful Jimi had to go to Europe to become popular, and then receive fame here, afterwards ...
