    Blues legend B.B. King is in hospital

    89-year-old blues legend B.B. King has been hospitalized, according to his representatives. His illness and condition isn't known, but he's had Type II diabetes for the past 20 years. When well, he still tours and performs.

    Nicknamed "King of the Blues", 89-year-old Mississippi-born Riley B. King is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has been ranked among the greatest guitar players of all time.

    B.B King is now in home hospice care.

    King’s long-time business manager Laverne Toney, who has power of attorney over his affairs, said the musician had slept well and welcomed the concerns about his health.

    I love B.B. King. Went to see him as a teenager at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Rest well B.B.

    Three of B.B King's 11 surviving children have had their bid to take control of their father's affairs thrown out of a Las Vegas court.

    Two said they suspect the musician's manager of stealing his money and neglecting his medical care. All three complained they were blocked from seeing him in home hospice care.

    But a judge tossed the dispute out of court, saying two investigations found no evidence King was being abused and that King's longtime business manager, Laverne Toney, should remain in legal control of his affairs.

    Toney and King's lead attorney, Brent Bryson, deny the theft allegations. They say King's children — including Karen Williams, Patty King, Rita Washington — can schedule visits as always.
    More than $5 million in assets is at stake and this is unlikely to be the end of the matter. B.B did not attend the hearing himself.

    I got to see BB King perform here in Orange County, up close and personal, in the mid-90's. I knew I was lucky to have that opportunity. The world will miss him.

    Rest in Peace, Sir.

    Can't have a B.B. King remembrance without his joy in music (IMO):
