BB King: Live in Paris 1973

Another legend of music passes away, with the death of BB King.

There are few musiscians who really merit the use of the description 'legend' but BB King was one of them.

There's not much that I can add that hasn't been said in a million obituary reports around the world. But his influenced spanned generations of musicians, from pub blues acts to stadium megastars, from the ghetto to the whitehouse.

He died at the age of 89, leaving a legacy that few will ever match.

So the least I can do is put up a clip of the master of the blues, at the height of his powers in a  clip from a show in Paris in 1973.

Does it get much better than this?
