    We've Lost A Blues Icon

    We lost B.B. King yesterday from complications of Diabetes. He passed away at his home at age 89. Truly one of the all time great masters in the Blues and Jazz world. "Lucille" is gonna be lonely without you sir. Rest in peace Mr. King.

    Thanks for the videos Richard! I met B.B. in Sao Pualo. He and his entourage were staying at the same hotel as I was. He was very approachable and friendly. Made you feel like you knew him for a long time.

    If a man speaks while in his garage and his wife does not hear it, is he still wrong?

    I'm not sure that any of us can imagine how many hurdles he had to overcome in his life to achieve the well deserved fame that he had. I've heard that about the only person that didn't know how good B.B. King was, was B.B. King himself.
