    Last night I went to my favorite hangout wearing my BB King Blues Club tshirt.We played all blues including
    BB`s songs on the jukebox.Seemed like he toured nonstop for years,all of us had BB King stories.I`ve seen him
    many times.Last time was just two summers ago when he played with Peter Frampton.It was very touching to see
    Frampton lead BB out to his chair and jam.
    Two weeks ago I was in Memphis for Memphis in May and strolled Beale St,ate and listened to the blues at BB`s
    Club.
    He passed away in Las Vegas on 05/14/2015.May he rest in peace.

    He was special and irreplaceable. I remember seeing him so many times on Carson. RIP.

    He was a one of a kind talent. I feel fortunate to have seen him live four times, including once in Oxford while I was still in college many years ago.

    I saw him many years ago at the crossroads guitar fest in Chicago, he was such an incredible guitar player. RIP BB.

    An American icon in the truest sense. Right up there with Ruth, Ali, Eastwood, Elvis and Sinatra.

    Sad we've lost BB King and Ben E King this year. Those of us who saw and heard them will feel a vacuum. RIP

    But wait! There's more!

    The talking heads are now saying that the Clark County officials are investigating a report of possible poisoning.

    Film at 11, I'm sure ...
