After blues legend B.B. King died last night at age 89, musicians took to social media to mourn his passing.
I had a beautiful dream in 1995. I will never forget. BBKing asked me to come on stage to sing "KING BEE" with him (a muddy waters song- find it on, my favorite, the first Rolling Stones record) and when we were done he waved John Lee Hooker out to the red lit stage & BB played lead while John played rhythm, John asked me what song, I said "Maudie", and we all smiled and I sang with John & BB kept up them rolling solos... 🙏 RIP BB You are loved and thank you for your life's gifts to us all 🙏 Both of these legends xxxx I love u xxxx #bbking #johnleehooker #dreams And John sat in a chair, and BB stood, just like this. 🙏

Snoop Dogg posted a series of black and white videos in which he listens to King classics like "The Thrill Is Gone" while smoking weed. "You gone but you ain't forgotten, we love you baby," Snoop says, shaking his head. "True legend." The rapper also announced that he's working on "a B.B. King mix that's gonna be available on Cadillac music via Dash radio."
