B.B King Passes Away At The Age Of 89
The legendary B.B. King passed away last night at his Las Vegas home. He had recently be hospitalized due to complications from Type 2 Diabetes.
He was a member of both the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. He was always known for playing his trademarked Gibson guitar named Lucille.
Over a span of 70 years he was awarded 15 Grammy Awards. The first one being awarded in 1970 and the last one in 2009.
I never got the pleasure of seeing B.B. King but I have been to his restuarant/ entertainment house in Memphis. It is such a cool place. The food is great and the entertainment is even better. If you are ever in Memphis and want a great live music experience make sure to stop at B.B King's!
