RIP BB KIng


Recommended Posts

Indeed; few in the industry deserve the accolade 'legend' - BB King certainly does.

A truly great bluesman.  I preferred his early work (very late 40s and 50s) which was authentic traditional blues.  I didn't fancy his stuff after this period as it did become influenced by the soul scene prevalent at the time (60s) and with the inclusion of loads of horns in his band; he did have a great voice right to the end.  I saw him at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1978.
