Take a Minute to Marvel at B.B. King


The world lost one of its blues masters May 14th with B.B. King’s passing. The man who kept blues alive brought his virtuosic playing to bear on generations of American experience, influencing musicians across all categories. Take a minute to marvel at his work: read about his career and legacy, take in views of his life from fellow icons and admirers. And, really, just watch him play (after the jump).
