Just heard that blues giant BB King passed in his sleep last night, 14/5/2015 in Las Vegas, aged 89. RIP BB King.

Float like a butterfly sting like a bee, that was BB's tone. His left hand vibrato was unmatched, well Gary Moore did a great version of it on their collaborative "Thrill Is Gone".
The Beale Street Blues Boy started on a Fender it isn't widely known.

BB later thought Gary was head cuttin' him, but he was paying homage in the only way he knew. They later toured again on BB's farewell tour in Europe.
Two great men of the blues now gone.
Live at the Regal, Cook County Jail Indianola Seeds all great BB LP's.
That hummingbird vibrato was the most amazing still of all time.
RIP blues man
