THE KING HAS LEFT THE STAGE...BUT NOT OUR HEARTS!

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP HIS SOUL



September 16, 1925 ~ May 14, 2015

B.B. King had a long illustrious career with his guitar 'Lucille' by his side. The fans around the world were mesmerized by his talent as a guitarist, writer and singer. He was 89 years old when he departed subsequent to an extended illness.  "The Thrill Is Gone" was his signature piece, however, he performed many ballads and "groove pieces" that left his audiences exhilarated over the years with a musical legacy par excellence.

Many fans accompanied the hearse carrying the body of B.B. King in a very public display of grief.  When we lose those we love and respect, rites of passage are healing.
