I hear B.B. King is in a hospice and may not be with us much longer. I hope he gets well soon.
Whenever he DOES pass on, though, I hope you guys will give him a special issue or at least a cover story - I can't think of anyone more deserving for lots of reasons.
MUCH AGREED. B.B.'s right up there with ANYONE as far as influence and increased popularity of guitars and guitar-music go.
Reminds me of the fact that my first copy of Guitar Player
was the August '83 issue with Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter on the cover, in the wake of Muddy's passing... Great issue, if a sad milestone, with many excellent articles and features related to Muddy and Johnny.
