"Whoever do get to see my sing,
With the 3D ring, sitting stationary like B.B. King"

 

The last of the Three Kings of Blues
1925-2015

 

I know he was almost 90, but that came on kinda suddenly

RIP

I saw some funny footage today where he was like 'I'm pretty bad at chords' and Bono was like 'oh ok The Edge can do chords'

In fact most of the footage of Mr King I've seen today has been very humble for such a master musician

What's the edge's real name? Edgar?

U2 has been around so long that I sometimes forget that they have punk-era stage names.  Bono (formerly "Bono Vox") and The Edge's real names are Paul and Herman or somethin.

 

But anyway, yea, RIP BB.

:( not impressed, always though it would be cool if he did a blues album with Madlib, or something to that effect.

I feel weird about saying RIP to an artist I know but don't follow much. Regardless of all that, I got to respect how much of a legend he was.

Im just glad I got to see him perform at least once before he passed away.Even then it was kind of sad bc he had to sit in a chair like the whole time and looked like he wasn't in very good health.Same goes for the time i saw Johny Winters....he couldn't even stand at all and looked like he had to prop himself just to play guitar.He didn't miss a note tho!!
