      King of Blues BB King dies

      King of Blues BB King dies - BBC News
      The 'King of the Blues' guitarist and singer, BB King, has died aged 89, his lawyer says.

      King, known for his hits Lucille, Sweet Black Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas.

      Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s. He went on to influence a generation of musicians, working with Eric Clapton and U2.

      Once ranked as the third greatest guitarist of all time, he had been suffering ill health in recent months.

      He was recently taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness.

      A former farmhand, King was awarded his 15th Grammy award in 2009 for his album One Kind Favor.

      He was also inducted into both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

      Rolling Stone magazine placed him behind only Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman in its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.

      Until recently, King performed in at least 100 concerts a year.

      I can only hope that that these claims prove to be untrue, but if they are, there will be a lot of upsetting news in the coming months...
