Default BB King Dies at 89

The King of the Blues passed in his sleep, at his home late Thursday night.

First thing I saw when I turned on the TV this morning. So sad. I never
was a huge fan of his music, but him and his music was loved by the
majority of Blues Music fans as well as just music fans in general. Lucille
has lost her lover.

R.I.P Mr. King

Used to live in Indianola, MS. Sometimes he would come home play a concert @ July 4th... The town was small enough that I could listen from my back porch. Great musician. Always appreciate those who stay connected with their roots.

I met him twice. The first time was in 1990, or 91, at the Columbia Marriott. I got to help him check into and out of his room. He was very gracious to me, and kept Lucille within a few feet at all times.
The second time was at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel about 10 years ago, and I helped him in and out again. On that occasion, I told him about my young son who had been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Mr. King was doing tv commercials for some diabetes related product at the time. He was very gracious again, and took the time to chat with me about his battle with diabetes. His parting words to me were: "Tell that boy to take care of himself, and he can live a long, healthy life!"
I have met many less famous people than he who were much less gracious. RIP, Mr. King!

First time I saw BB was at an outdoor pavilion in 1972. I thought he was old then because back then, all the music I listened too were mostly youngsters.

He was always one of my favorites. His name is prominent on my Spotify account and my kids have become used to me blasting Lucille throughout the house. World lost a legend. Thank God his music lives on.
