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

A sad, sad loss and one of the true greats in any style of music. My favourite BB King song is Hummingbird, check out this live performance from the Letterman Show in 1983.

We saw him about 1998 .

Even then there appeared to be a doc at the side of the stage.

Fantastic music, great voice.

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.
