B.B. King is the biggest influence in my life on and off the stage. B.B. is love in all its beautiful glory. I believe he was chosen by God to represent the finest in the arts and humanity. He literally embodies the deepest soul, love and kindness. There will never be anyone like him again in music. He changed the guitar by inventing the style that has inspired and influenced many generations of blues musicians as well as other forms of music.
Sending love, respect and prayers for him and his family at this time. Ronnie Earl
