From the Los Angeles Times:
B. B. King, the singer and guitarist who put the blues in a three-piece suit and took the musical genre from the barrooms and back porches of the Mississippi Delta to Carnegie Hall and the world's toniest concert stages with a signature style emulated by generations of blues and rock musicians, has died. He was 89.
The 15-time Grammy Award winner died Thursday night in his Las Vegas home, said Angela Moore, representative for his youngest daughter, Claudette. He had struggled in recent years with diabetes.
King died peacefully in his sleep, Claudette King told The Times.
Three of his songs are known to have been played at the radio station 'WKRP In Cincinnatti', Ohio. And "Chains And Things" was played on the record player in the Swan station, as heard in 'Lost'.
Here are some of his appearances in Toobworld. Some of them are as a member of the League of Themselves. In others he plays other characters who are similar to him.
In February of next year, BB King will be inducted into the Television Crossover Hall Of Fame....
Good night and may God bless.......
