UPDATE: B.B. King passed peacefully yesterday, May 14.
I've been sad since hearing the news, that B.B. King is in hospice care. It was confirmed by a statement by King on his website, BBKing.com:
“I am in home hospice care at my residence in Las Vegas.
Thanks to all for your well wishes and prayers.”
King has packed more life, expression and creativity into his years than probably any ten of us put together ever will. And I can't think of any popular music artist who treated his fans better. Can you?
I've never met King, but many of us have. Let's thank and celebrate B.B. King by sharing your experiences meeting him, and the autographs he signed in-person for you.
And thank him.
I'll set up a discussion for B.B. King autograph authentication, so please don't post anything but autographs you received in-person here.
Thanks, Mr. King, for the joy you've brought us by singing the blues.
