He was an absolute legend. I really liked the album he did with Eric Clapton 'Riding With the King'

I never really thought about it, but reading last night I found that the BB came from people calling him Blues Boy.

Sad. I am glad that he lived long enough that he was able to be recognized and appreciated for his work. Unlike countless others that were ripped off and died poor.

BB didn't just play the blues; he defined the blues. In my own playbook there aren't a lot of musical legends. He is one of them.

RIP my friend.

Extraordinary, indeed. He helped shape the sound and direction of popular music in the 20th century. He took a background rhythm instrument and gave it a singing solo voice. A true legend.
