B.B. King (born Riley B. King; September 16, 1925 - May 14, 2015) - Passes Away In Las Vegas at age 89

Here in Memphis (where I learned to talk the jive) our hearts are heavy this morning. We have lost our greatest & our last true legend. Memphis & B.B. are one, akin to Memphis & the blues. The only thing bigger than King's famous chops was his heart. We have lost a true ambassador. A little bit of our city died last night. The only thing worse than our tears, is we will never hear Lucille cry again. We have his legacy and that will never fade away. Rest Easy old man, you did your family proud.
