RIP BB King

A true legend.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

He's even got an XM station named after him. This is one of my all-time favorite songs. rip

nice piece. I was never a big BB King fan - he was too jazzy for my taste, but clearly near the top of the blues pantheon.

Confirm X 2. Great piece. Although The Thrill is Gone is one of the great all-time songs, I MUCH prefer the total bodies of work of Howlin' Wolf and, especially, Muddy Waters.

yup. I saw a batch of traditional bluesmen growing up in Mississippi, so my preference is that, or rock it like Bo Diddly, John Lee Hooker, SRV or Buddy Guy.
