    That has a history of posting RIP's.

    Then step out of this thread and find you a political one. There are plenty of them around here.

    I know!! Right?!?

    There has to be one in every crowd I suppose. Oh well.

    I never had the chance to visit with Mr. King. As closely as he worked with Aaron and Mac, I thought that eventually we would cross paths. It never really dawned on me that he would not live forever. Too late now.

    Rest in peace Blues Boy.

    Yeah you'll always have a Hall Monitor complaining because you are out in the hall without a pass.

    FACT: B.B. King could not sing and play the guitar at the same time. Want to challenge me on that? Show one video.

    Seeing BB was on my bucket list. I had one chance during PA school but was far too broke to go see him. He was in on TV growing up too.

    He once said he named his guitar after the woman whom two men were fighting over during a party in a barn years ago-the barn nearly burned down and he was able to grab his guitar and escape before it did.

    He's known for playing Gibsons, but in his earliest days (early 50's) he played the Fender telecaster.

    Fact: I cannot play bass and sing at the same time either. I can play acoustic and sing all day. Put a bass in my hands and I'm stupefied. And bass guitar is my primary instrument!

    Apparently, you're the only one that cares.

    And that is relevant to what?
