King of Blues, BB King dead at the age of 89

As you may know, B.B. King has died. The Fresh Music Page doesn’t cover much Blues music, but BB King is a rightful King of Blues. Gospel music often gets its respect for being a forefront for R&B but let’s remember that R&B stands for Rhythm and Blues and the art form of Blues has influenced both R&B, Gospel, and Rock. It is one of the true American Art Forms.

 B.B. King is gone, but the Blues will live on. Rest well King B.B.  Here is B.B. at his best and this is one of my favorites; "Don't Answer The Door".
