The Thrill is Gone: B.B. King
Today, May 15th marks the day the Blues died. Musical icon and ‘King of the Blues’, B.B. King passed away in his Las Vegas home at the age of 89. King is known for transitioning blues music from the barrooms and porches of Mississippi to the concert halls and main-stages of the world. Throughout his 7 decade career, B.B. King inspired countless musicians with his blistering solos, smooth gospel, and immaculate charm.
In his honor, we present a full 1974 live performance from B.B. King in Africa. The concert was held in honor of the historic Ali vs. Foreman fight “Rumble in the Jungle.”
