B.B. King- 1925-2015

Posted on:May 15, 2015

Blues legend B.B. King passed away in his sleep on Thursday, May 14. B.B. was a nickname for "Blues Boy" and he definitely lived up to that monicker. B.B.'s playing style was so straight-forward yet so unique with his signature vibrato. He was quoted as saying "I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions." As a frequent visitor of San Diego B.B. enjoyed playing venues like the Belly Up and House of Blues. He also was involved in charity work in San Diego as an ambassador for Photocharity, a non-profit that houses homeless youth. He would autograph guitars (that looked similar to his 'Lucille') and othe memorabilia that would be auctioned off for the benefit of the charity. His smile was infectious and his appeal crossed over many generations and genres of music. Rest in peace King.

Our annual Music Matters Instrument Drive is nearing an end! For the rest of the month of May, San Diegans can donate their used musical instruments to Jazz 88.3 and in turn, we will refurbish each instrument collected and distribute them among San Diego City School music programs. So dust off your old instrument(s) and swing by the Jazz 88.3 business office to drop 'em off (we're located in the L-Building on the City College campus) and help keep San Diego's youth musically-inspired!
