Within a month, the singers of "When a Man Loves a Woman," "Stand by Me" ... and "The Thrill Is Gone" have all passed away.


May you Rest in Peace, BB!

I agree wholeheartedly.
Had the privilege and pleasure to see him perform in 2002.

A legend has passed. RIP

He's been in hospice for some time now. I'm glad to hear he went Home.
The 3 Kings, BB, Eddie, and Albert are the most influential Blues players from their era, and molded all that we grew up on.
Their spirit will go on forever in the music. Such Joy they've given the world.

And what about Freddie King, Scott? I met the man once, after a show at Davidson College over 40 years ago, and even partied with his band. Freddie was a bit of a jerk, but one hell of a Texas boogie blues guitarist.

Didn't mean to hijack my own thread, but thought all the Kings of the Blues deserve their due, as they all paid their dues.

Ben E. King passed, too? I did not know that. heck I likely thought he was gone. Yeah, we take this
pretty hard in Memphis, but we also raise em up, too. We do songwriter nights in a little juke joint I co-own
and all our B.B. prints are cornered with a black strip for now. Percy just went up on the wall, too. I was going
to print Percy a week before he died, and said NAH, went with Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed. But boy did
I find out later how poor a choice that was. On the night pictured below, we had a band made up of high school
kids and we let em throw an all ages show inside. This is a band from Chattanooga that opened up for em.
