Riley B. King
September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015
The music world lost an icon yesterday. As much as I love music, I must admit that I don’t know much about the blues. It is a genre that I would like to develop an appreciation for and learn more about. Even without having a deep footing in the blues, it’s hard to deny the enormous the blues has had on music — not just American music. B.B. King played a huge role in the notoriety, influence, and global recognition of the blues. Rest in peace Mr. King.
