Farewell to BB King
Farewell to BB King, the ‘King of the Blues’ who passed away yesterday, aged 89.
“BB King was an enormous influence on me and for countless others. I first heard him on the record ‘Live At The Regal’ at 15, and was struck by the sound and the emotion in his playing and singing and the effect of both on the audience. It was an honour to be a part of ‘BB King and Friends’, his 80th birthday recording of duets. BB will always be in my heart.”
