Blues legend B.B. King died peacefully in his sleep while in hospice care last night in Las Vegas. He was 89. An incredible loss for the music industry as there was no one like him out there in the game.
One of my fondest memories of King was from a Cosby episode where he portrayed a blues singer by the name of Riley Jackson (Riley being his real first name). I’m sure many of you will also remember this episode.
Rest in paradise, Riley. The musical world will now be singing the blues.
