bbking„The 'King of the Blues', guitarist and singer BB King, has died aged 89.“

Lucille weeps.

You know if I can sing pop tunes like
Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis Jr.
I don't think I still could do it
'Cause Lucille don't wanna play nothin' but the blues
And I think I'm, I think I'm pretty glad about that
'Cause don't nobody sing to me like Lucille, sing Lucille

[update] The best obituary for B.B. King was written in 1966: „[He] safely guarded his sound and refused to compromise on what his art was. There aren’t many musicians like B.B. King left in the world, who want the sanctity of their sound more than fame or fortune.“
