What a loss… I woke up this morning to the news my favorite bluesman, B.B. King passed away. After seeing him play live quite a few times, I was hooked. The talent, the soul he had was unforgettable. The 89-year-old, 15-time Grammy winning bluesman will be greatly missed.

But at least he left us with a great deal of musical talent to remember him by. And what a talent it was. It’s impossible not to hear his influence on every electric guitar player out there.

After releasing his first single in 1949 to playing his final shows 60 years on, “The Thrill is Gone” but not forgotten. RIP B.B. King…
