Obituary : B.B. King, “the King of the Blues dies

B.B. King, “the King of the Blues,” whose stinging guitar solos and husky, full-throated vocals made him an international music icon and the most commercially successful performer in blues history, died Thursday in Las Vegas, his attorney told the Associated Press. He was 89.
The winner of 15 Grammy Awards, the most in the blues genre, Mr. King achieved his success despite having only one Top Twenty single, “The Thrill Is Gone,” which reached number 15 on the pop charts in 1970. His distinctive singing voice, which ranged with ease from commanding roar to beseeching falsetto, has for decades been part of the soundscape of music lovers the world over.
