RIP to one of the greats!

Sadly, B.B. King has passed away last night at the age of 89. The “King of Blues” died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas. News of his death comes two weeks after he was put in home hospice care after suffering from dehydration.

King has been suffering from Type II diabetes for over 20 years. He was hospitalized back in April 2015, because of a diabetes-related emergency. He dealt with a similar medical problem in 2014, when he was forced to cancel eight performances due to dehydration and exhaustion stemming from the disease.

Check out some of his genius.
