I love the Blues but more than that, my husband is a Blues musician and singer. Mr. King was one of his strongest influences. He was a mentor to him as he grew up and an example to him of what it means to play the blues with integrity and skill.
It is always sad when we lose anyone close to us. BB was not a friend or family but he was as much a part of our lives as if he might have been.
So, Mr. King, you will be missed and remembered by so many. Lovers of music, lovers of the Blues, musicians known and unknown. You have blessed us with your talent and your life.
Rest In Peace
