B.B. King has passed, and with him, a little piece of blues history…

The legendary guitarist died Thursday at home in Las Vegas, according to his attorney.  He was 89, and in hospice care since the first of May.

TMZ broke the story that some of B.B.’s children had recently battled his longtime manager Laverne Toney about his medical care and finances. Earlier this month, Patty King accused Toney of elder abuse but the claim was eventually shot down in court.

King was famous for bringing the sounds of the Mississippi Delta blues to the mainstream, starting with his hit 1970 version of “The Thrill Is Gone.” He also recorded countless collaborations with other superstars including Sheryl Crow, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton.

You will be missed, B.B., but not forgotten!
