I was sorry to hear of the great Mr. King's death on May 14th. Sometimes when I hear of someones death it seems too soon or I feel sorry but B.B. King was an amazing man who lived his life to the fullest and shared his love with everyone who listened. He passed away at age 89 and had still been touring into his 80's. I have been lucky enough to see him play in a few small venues.
I always liked his music but seeing him play live was amazing. He played with so much passion. In fact I was so inspired by him that he plays a part in my first MS. Now I have to decide if he stays in the book or if I take him out so the book is not dated. I can't think of anyone else who would be as amazing and inspirational a musician with such a long career.
I couldn't let his passing go by without saying something. Thank you B. B, for all the music and wonderful concerts. Peace be with you.
