Today is a day of remembrance and mourning for blues players and music lovers the world over – as we have lost yet another music Legend.

Riley King was born on a cotton plantation near Indianola, Mississippi in 1925. He received his first guitar when he was 12 – and the rest as they say – is history.

The impact of his soulful voice and his powerful playing has been a true inspiration for generations of musicians across all genres of music. With just one, stinging, vibrato filled note -B.B. could touch his audience’s heart – and they would know exactly how he was feeling – happy or sad. It’s because with every performance and every carefully selected note – B.B. King bared his soul and passion for his craft – and we were lucky enough to have witnessed it. The World was lucky enough to have him for 89 fantastic years – and for that I am truly thankful.

Rest in peace B.B. King – music would have been a lot different without you.

BB King September 16, 1925 – May 15, 2015
