I can't remember a day going by that when blues was mentioned that BB King's name wasn't in the conversation. Very sad to hear of his passing. Heaven will be a much better place with him playing up there now!
My son and I met him at a concert, and my son, like others there, had a guitar for him to sign. Only problem was my sons' was a Fender. BB gave him a hard time about the Fender in fun, but did sign it. He was truly a class act.
Amazing how many lives were touched by this legend. I can't recall ever hearing one negative comment about him, and all the musicians that he played with through the years, is a testament to the love of his craft. He will be missed but never equaled.
