The Thrill will never be gone…

We’ve lost another one…

When I read the news this morning that the music world had lost another icon, tears were running down my face.

I’m so sad, but I’m so glad I’ve had B.B. King’s music as part of the tapestry of my life. I’ve always adored and loved him.

This photo was taken at the last show I worked with him. I was so glad I got to spend a few minutes with him after the show and got this autograph.

He will live on in anyone who’s ever picked up a guitar..

EG and BB King back stage

About EGKight

I've made music most of my life, and I enjoy every aspect of it. I'm a roots singer, songwriter, entertainer, publisher, and producer. My musical style has been called “country-flavored southern-fried blues.” I've headlined at clubs, theaters and festivals across America and in Europe. And my songs have been recorded by artists across the genres. Even my mentor, Koko Taylor, recorded a couple of my songs, and they landed on her last two Grammy nominated albums. I've had songs on five major TV networks, and I placed five songs in a movie that's available on Amazon Prime. I love songwriting, and I love performing, and I love to see all my fans at my shows. I'll see you out there on the road!

    A really sad day for all blues lovers, one of the masters rip Mr BB King. We’ll all be hurting, but thanks for all of the great music. John.

    BB had been to the State Theater in Kalamazoo a number of times and we never made it to one of his shows until a friend urged us – “If he comes back again, you guys better get there. It could be his last trip here.”
    We took his advice and were thrilled to the bone watching and listening to a legend live – the way it’s supposed to be.
    The fact that I was sitting next to the fattest man in the world and it was hot as hell didn’t dim my enthusiasm. Much.
    Thankfully his music will live on forever. Aren’t we lucky?
