“the thrill is gone”

in my small town have the “hot licks blues fest” every September.  you can find me parked in my chair from morning till they sweep the streets at the end, through great performances and some not so great.  a full days of the blues…yes, please!

this morning the world received the news that the “king of the blues”, b.b.king has passed. the man who saved the blues.  the man who influenced and inspired some of the great guitarists of our age…clapton, hendrix, richards, and fellow blues man buddy guy.  I was fortunate to have been able to see him perform.  his talent defies description.

“Lucille” is silent and we mourn with her.
