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.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
