    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.

    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.

    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 decided to tune in to NOPD scanner now. What is the matter with this world. Why can't humans stop their crime sprees. Gee whiz. Legend made N.O. Have some respect.

    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):

    This has tones of the dispute surrounding Casey Kassem's death. The article you linked, newone, states, "Cops Say No Homicide Investigation in B.B. King's Death." But a Reuters article published on Monday claims, "Nevada officials said on Monday they would conduct a homicide investigation into the death of B.B. King..."

    What changed? The results of the autopsy performed on Sunday aren't due back for 6-8 weeks.

    My coworkers husband attended the funeral with a fellow security officer of Mr. King's.
    There is truth to the rumor that there could be a homicide.
    Apparently the manager of Mr. King has been cutting the family off from seeing him and the family are all extremely close.
    The manager has also been seen emptying out the estate.
    She is also the executor.
    It is not good.

    Mods, please delete if not appropriate.

    B.B King asked to be returned to his native Mississippi for his final resting place, and that wish was granted today. President Obama sent a message which I liked, that was read out at the ceremony:
