The "King of the Blues", guitarist and singer BB King, has died aged 89.

King, known for his hits My Lucille, Sweet Little Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas.

Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s, going on to influence a generation of musicians and work with Eric Clapton and U2.

Once ranked as the third greatest guitarist of all time, he had been suffering ill health in recent months.

He was recently taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness.

Not a good week for music. :(

BB King will never truly die until the very last of his records turns to dust.

My favs of BB:



My friend, blues singer H-Bomb Ferguson, told me he toured with BB in the early 50s when they both had some hit records.
One night B woke up to find his watch and money gone.
The woman he was with ran out after he fell asleep.
