The Thrill is Gone Away. May he rest in peace

Riley B. King was born on a cotton plantation in Berclair, Mississippi. He died last night at the age of 89. King began playing guitar at age 12 and started recording his music in 1949 with producer Sam Phillips who later founded Sun Records.

B.B. and Lucille will be missed. Rest in Peace.

  1. R.I.P. B.B.
    A little over a week ago the news broke that Ben E. King(The Drifters) had died and because B.B. had been in bad health many people believed it was him.
    Loved B.B.’s music. He had been a musical presence my entire life and now another piece of my life is gone.
