King of the Blues
B. B. King I woke up to the news that we had lost the King of the Blues last night. While at 89 and knowing he had been put into hospice care weeks ago it was still a bit of shock or maybe that was the fact R texted me with the news 30 minutes before my alarm was set to go off.
B.B. was the undisputed king of the blues and until the fall was still touring at least 100 days a year. He was rarely without his guitar named Lucille by his side.
B.B. was on my bucket list of artist I want to see in concert. R & I have tried in recent years to find a way to hit one of his shows but couldn't get both of our schedules to get it in.
I know what will be playing in the background tomorrow while cleaning my house.
