Even though it was inevitable that we'd lose him this year given his recent health problems, I still feel a great pang of sadness that he's gone.

He was a legend and I always admired at how many gigs he would perform each year even well into his 80s.

 

The first time I got to see him was when I was 16/17 at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, front row seats. I went to the gig straight from college so I was wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt and ripped jeans.

After the show when I got up to applaud, B.B. saw me, beckoned me towards the stage and shook my hand, laughing and commented "yeah man, their singer can really sing" even though he probably didn't care for their genre of music.

 

Mr. King, I take my hat off to you. I'm honoured that I got to meet you and thank you for the great music you've given us over the years. I'm also proud that my 5000th post on here gives me the chance to pay you tribute.

I thought I might get through the year with no hits but am more gutted that BB was the first to go. When I compare him to some of the others on my DDP list it just goes to go the show the Universe does not care a jot.

The people who have gone this year are those who have serious and dedicated fan bases Nimoy, Pratchett, King, Benaud even Simon to some degree. When are all the murderers, dictators and light entertainers going to go?

Mayor declares today B B King Day in Memphis. http://www.washingto...red-in-memphis/

 

Possibly in celebration of outliving Sir C's prediction of his death yesterday?

 

I get a feeling that it won't be too long before B.B. King passes away. Early next month would be my guess and I'll be stuck in traffic as it hear it on the radio on my way home from work. My dad will probably text me the news and then 5 minutes later send another text to ask if I received the one that he sent initially. I'd then have to explain to him again that I don't always answer my phone straight away, especially if I'm driving.  

 

 

Can you PM with your feelings about other hopeful candidates in December. Cheers.

The cause wasn't widely reported 'cause he was in hospice care with severe diabetes and his death was kind of expected. So the immediate cause was the series of cerebrovascular accidents with diabetes and high blood pressure as contributing (complicating) factors.

Just when we thought John Nash' death was the first ever non-natural death in the Deathlist history!

B.B. King could take that crown. (Yes, in keeping with deathlist etiquette, pun intended)

(Edit: previous story -- "Three of Kings 11 surviving children Karen Williams, Rita Washington and Patty King said outside court they suspect Toney is stealing money and neglecting Kings medical needs while blocking them from seeing their father in home hospice care. They vowed to keep fighting."

This story - "His daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King, lay out their claim in documents provided by their lawyer to the Associated Press."
