"I believe everybody's had the blues at one time or another." B.B. King.
I was sad when I heard B.B. King had died, and felt the same way as I did when Stevie Ray Vaughn passed away, only consoled by the knowledge that his music will live on forever in my and millions of others' hearts.
Anyone who's had the blues and turned on B.B. King has felt comforted by his music and the sweet sound of Lucille, as he called his guitar. He inspired generation after generation of guitarists and was an example to all musicians who aspire to play that most deceptively simple and deeply emotionally complex genre of music - the blues.
