Re: King of Blues BB King dies

I discovered him fairly late, after his collaboration with U2 in 1989, he was already in his 60's then. What struck me most about him was his honesty, but also how 'at one' with the music he was. Music wasn't just an extension of his voice, it WAS his voice. Legendary doesn't come close. RIP B.B.
