Another good one gone. BB King, the king of the blues, died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas yesterday. You’ll find an obit on his life, times and exploits here. He played Ireland several times, including a great show at Dublin’s College Green in 1994. Remember him – and Lucille – this way. The thrill really is gone this time.
