Blues legend B.B. King has died in Las Vegas at age 89, his lawyer says. The one-time farmhand brought new fans to the blues and influenced a generation of musicians with his heartfelt vocals and soaring guitar on songs such as “The Thrill Is Gone.” King sold millions of records worldwide and was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Steve says, of King’s passing: This time the World has lost a friend. BB King was friends to everybody. To listen to his music will seem like he is still here. One of God’s most “Beautiful People”, an inspiration to everyone.
