It’s a sad day that we’ve been dreading for the past several months: blues great B.B. King has passed away at the age of 89. News broke earlier this month as the legend was brought into hospice care and his demise was written on the wall.
A man who personifies the blues, he was an unforgettable guitarist who always knew how to evoke the spirit of the genre – especially with his guitar, Lucille. Goodbye, B.B. King. You’ll never be forgotten and thank you.
