Illness and death[edit]

For the final few years of his life, Biden suffered from brain cancer.[29][30] In May 2010, he was admitted to Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware, after complaining of a headache, numbness and paralysis; officials stated that he had suffered from a “mild stroke.”[30][31] Later that month, Biden was transferred to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia and kept for observation for several days.[31]

In August 2013, Biden was admitted to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and diagnosed with brain cancer, after experiencing what White Houseofficials called “an episode of disorientation and weakness.”[32] A lesion was removed at that time; Biden had radiation and chemotherapy treatments, and the cancer was in remission.[33] On May 20, 2015, he was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland due to a recurrence of brain cancer; he died there 10 days later on May 30, 2015.[29][30]

Riley Ben King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known by his stage name B.B. King, was an American Hall of Fame bluessinger, songwriter and guitarist.

Rolling Stone ranked King number 6 on its 2011 list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time (previously ranked number 3 in the 2003 edition of the same list).[2] He was ranked No. 17 in Gibson’s “Top 50 Guitarists of All Time”.[3] According to Edward M. Komara, King “introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato that would influence virtually every electric blues guitarist that followed.”[4] King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. He is considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname “The King of the Blues”, and one of the “Three Kings of the Blues Guitar” (along with Albert King and Freddie King).[5][6][7] King was also known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing at more than 200 concerts per year on average into his 70s.[8] In 1956, he reportedly appeared at 342 shows.[9]

In 1990, King was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President George H.W. Bush.[10] In 2006, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush.[11] He is widely regarded as one of the most influential blues guitarists of all time, inspiring countless other electric blues and blues rock guitarists.[12] He died on May 14, 2015, in Las VegasNevada.



King’s favorite singer was Frank Sinatra. In his autobiography he spoke about how he was a “Sinatra nut” and how he went to bed every night listening to Sinatra’s classic album In the Wee Small Hours. Sinatra had gotten King into the main clubs in Las Vegas during the 1960s, He credited Sinatra for opening doors to black entertainers who were not given the chance to play in “white-dominated” venues.[69][70]


For more information about King’s guitar, see Lucille (guitar).

“When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille.”[71]

B.B. King used simple equipment. He played guitars made by various manufacturers early in his career: he played a Fender Telecaster on most of his recordings with RPM Records (USA).[72] However, he was best known for playing variants of the Gibson ES-355. In 1980, Gibson Guitar Corporation launched the B.B. King Lucille model. In 2005, Gibson made a special run of 80 Gibson Lucilles, referred to as the “80th Birthday Lucille”, the first prototype of which was given as a birthday gift to King, and which he used ever since.[73]

King used a Lab Series L5 2×12″ combo amplifier and had been using this amplifier for a long time. It was made by Norlin Industries for Gibson in the 1970s and 1980s. Other popular L5 users are Allan Holdsworth and Ty Tabor of King’s X. The L5 has an onboard compressor, parametric equalization, and four inputs. King also used a Fender Twin Reverb.[74]

He used his signature model strings “Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings” with gauges: 10–13–17p–32w–45w–54w and D’Andrea 351 MD SHL CX (Medium 0.71mm, Tortoise Shell, Celluloid) Picks.[74]

B.B. King’s Blues Club[edit]

In 1991, B.B. King’s Blues Club opened on Beale Street in Memphis, and in 1994, a second club was launched at Universal City Walk in Los Angeles. A third club in New York City’s Times Square opened in June 2000. Two further clubs opened at Foxwoods Casino inConnecticut in January 2002[75] and another in Nashville in 2003.[76] Another club opened in Orlando in 2007.[77] A club in West Palm Beach opened in the fall of 2009[78] and an additional one, based in the Mirage HotelLas Vegas, opened in the winter of 2009.[79]


In 2002, King signed on as an official supporter of Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organization that provides free musical instruments and instruction to children in underprivileged public schools throughout the United States. He sat on the organization’s Honorary Board of Directors.[80]

Television and other appearances[edit]

King made guest appearances in numerous popular television shows, including The Cosby ShowThe Young and the RestlessGeneral Hospital,[81] The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,Sesame Street,[82] Married… with ChildrenSanford and Son, and Touched by an Angel. He also had a cameo in the movies Spies Like Us[83] and Heart and Souls. He voiced a character in the last episode of Cow and Chicken.[84]

In 2000, the children’s show Between The Lions featured a singing character named “B.B. the King Of Beasts”, modeled on the real King.[85]

A feature documentary about King narrated by Morgan Freeman and directed by Jon Brewer was released on October 15, 2012.[86]

King appeared twice on the PBS television series Austin City Limits, in 1983 and 1996.


King, who was diabetic, appeared in several television commercials for OneTouch Ultra in the 2000s and early 2010s.[87] He appeared in a 2014 commercial for the Toyota Camry with his guitar Lucille.[88]
