BB King 1925 – 2015


We all have been blessed to have heard and felt the music of BB King. A true King of the Blues !! Glad to have heard him live a few times. Met and talked with him @ Tower records Singapore in 1994. Myself, Mei Sheum and Blair Sherell played for him. He was so kind to ask where I was from and that led to more chit chat. I was compelled to ask him for an autograph. All I had was my Charlie Parker omni book. He said: Charlie Parker thats my Hero! A beautiful moment in time. RIP BB KING !
