Obituary: B. B. King (1925-2015)

B. B. KIng has died; read Guardian’s obituary here and here. I don’t know the music of B. B. King at all–I know nothing about the blues genre–except the song “The Thrill is Gone,” which is used in Scorcese’s great movie Casino. I have always liked that song since it sounds like rock music, like Cream. But I hear B. B. King all the time; K plays his music all the time. Rest in peace, B. B. King.
