This is truly a sad day.
I pulled him over many years ago outside of Parkin, Arkansas and got a chance to talk with him. He was a true legend and will be missed.
He will live on in his music for generations to come.
Sad. I had the pleasure of meeting him in an airport in France when I was 12....he had broken his leg when he slipped on ice there. He gave me one of
his gold BBKing pins in the shape of his guitar.....I still have it somewhere.
He was truly a legend and his music will live on forever.
That's really cool that you pulled him over. I would have as well : )
He wasn't just the King. He was iconic. He was the dude who played guitar so long that he couldn't stand the entire length of the show anymore. So
he told someone to get him a chair and played another 27 years! As long as Hendrix lived! My God there is one hell of a jam going on in heaven right
now. God Bless all of the bluesmen who showed the world what it's all about.
I'm going to write a MEAN blues right now and dedicate it to the greatest influential player this world has ever seen. My heart is broken.
