A Video Tribute to B.B. King

May 15, 2015

Today is a sad day for all guitar players, particularly those of us who started playing in the '60s. The legendary BB King has died. Eric Clapton perfectly captured the moment on his Facebook post:

There's not a lot left to say because this music is almost a thing of the past now, and there are not many left who play it in the pure way that BB did. He was a beacon for all of us who love this kind of music.

For those of you unfamiliar with the work of BB King, I offer these three video clips:

The Thrill is Gone (Montreaux 1993)

Live at Sing Sing Prison 1972

And This Version of Lucille
