    BB is the best, May he rest in Peace. Truly the King of the blues.

    :cry:

    I'm gonna go home from work tonight, and crank up my LP of Live at the Regal.

    I'm truly saddened today to hear of his passing. BB King was a true American Icon who helped bring the music of America's South to the rest of the world. Even to me as a small kid in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
    Celebrate his life America, he was one of your great ambassadors.
    RIP BB KING

    This morning I actually put on the shirt I got last time I saw him at the House of Blues Anaheim back last summer.

    I have no words.

    I am saddened to read/hear this. It's a little like the sun is shining less brightly or something. At least he was playing until very recently. Live at the Regal in particular gets me every time. Thank you for the music BB.

    I'm kind of shook up over it. Just this past afternoon, the wife and I had a long talk about how lucky she'd been to see BB many times in Canada. She's seen BB more than anyone else put together. She's asleep and won't hear this news until morning. She's going to be one sad lady. I guess we're all sad. I am.

    It didn't come as a surprise, but it is still a shock.
