He could play. His vocals weren't too shabby either. Some talent.

Saw King once too. Sad day for all you guitar players out there. We still got Buddy Guy. If you you dig Blues Guitar- Buddy Guy is almost right up there with B.B.King.

B.B. King was an amazing musician, although he couldn't read music or play chords, he knew how to play and play he most certainly did. The man made some incredible music, even heard today from Clapton that he learned a lot from BB back when he was as young musician. The world once again has lost another great legend and the sad thing is, there will never be another like him and even that genre of great and talented line of musical legends is drawing to a close, very sad indeed. You will never be forgotten.

R.I.P B.B. King. Now he was in heaven and God has looking after him. Unfortunately, it will be beginning of wrestling between his children and his business manger Laverne Toney for his estate.
