I was lucky enough to see him twice.

Rest in peace Riley.

RIP Mr B.B. King I saw him so many times,
he regularly played in Spain since early 80's and was the blues godfather of an spanish gipsy guitar "Raimundo Amador" well Mr. King allways called him Raimondo.
He was so influential apart from being a nice and funny gentleman, we'll sorely miss him.
Sure he's playing and telling great stories on the other side

Love this animated interview

A Tale of Two "Kings"




One born in Berclair Mississippi.

One born in "Donegal.

Both picked up a guitar at an early age.

Both learned to play blues and Rock to rage.




One "King" was black.

One was white. Both had a talent that took you back.

Both traveled the world far and wide.

One had "Lucille" the other mastered the slide.

One died too Young. The other passed at a ripe old age.





"A Tale of two "Kings" sharing the same crown.

Both real. Both humble.

Get them on stage and feel the "Rumble".

One white, one black, both good, both right,

take you higher than a bird in flight.



One's "A Million miles away" the other "The Thrill is Gone"

And someday we'll see them both again.



A Tale of two "Kings" Riley Ben King and Rory Gallagher!



My tribute for them both.
