RIP Legendary Blues Singer B.B. King

The King of Blues B.B. King has passed away at age 89 at his Las Vegas home.

His attorney Brent Bryson told The Associated Press that King died peacefully in his sleep. The 15-time Grammy winner suffered from diabetes and had been declining health for the past year.  Collapsing during a performance in Chicago last October due to dehydration and exhaustion, King had been in hospice care ever since.
