The Thrill is Gone

“I never wanted to be like other blues singers … I’ve never wanted to be like anyone other than myself.” – B. B. KingScreen Shot 2015-05-15 at 1.49.39 PM

B. B. King 

September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015

Of the blues, B.B. once said, “It’s good for me when things are bad, and it’s good for me when things are good.” Ed Bradley asked him in an interview, “Do you think you will ever stop touring?” B.B. leaned back, folded his arms across his chest, smiled and said, “When the great man calls and they bury me in the ground.”
