The Thrill Is Gone

On May 14, 2015, the world said goodbye to a legend.  The King of the Blues, Riley "B.B." King passed away at the age of 89.  Throughout the years, he shared his God-given talent with the world bringing joy and happiness to the masses through his mastery of blues music.  I had the privilege of seeing BB King perform live in Memphis almost 20 years ago.  It was an unforgettable night.  The raw emotion could actually be felt from both his powerful voice and his guitar, Lucille.  The world was lucky to have someone like BB King and he will live on through his music and mastery of the blues.  Rest in peace Riley King!

You know I'm free, free now baby
I'm free from your spell
Oh I'm free, free, free now
I'm free from your spell
And now that it's all over
All I can do is wish you well
