Saw BB King in 1988 as a student in Newcastle, brilliant performance. Sad day today but thank you for the music, thank you for the musicians you inspired.
The 'King of the Blues' guitarist and singer, BB King, has died aged 89, his lawyer says.
King, known for his hits Lucille, Sweet Black Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas.
Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s. He went on to influence a generation of musicians, working with Eric Clapton and U2. Link.
