has this to say at the Funeral…

“Hands that once picked cotton would someday pick guitar strings on a national and international stage. Amazing,”

 

One of B.B. King’s son’s said this…

 

 

“For a man coming out of the cotton field unlearned and you take his music and draw four corners of the world together — that is amazing,”

Fans say farewell as B.B. King laid to rest in Mississippi | New York Post

INDIANOLA, Miss. — Hundreds of people filled a church in the Mississippi Delta for the funeral Saturday of B.B. King, who rose from sharecropper in the area’s flat cotton fields to worldwide fame as a blues singer and guitarist who influenced generations of entertainers. King was 89 when he died May 14 in Las Vegas. At his request, his body was returned to his native Mississippi for a final homecoming. Amid rain, about 500 people filled the sanctuary of Bell Grove Missionary Baptist Church, a red brick structure that sits in a field off of B.B. King Road in Indianola. More than 200 people who couldn’t get into the sanctuary watched a live broadcast of the funeral in the church’s fellowship hall, many waving hand-held fans with a black-and-white photo of a smiling King hugging his black electric guitar, Lucille.

Love him or hate him. He may party with hookers and blow but he is living his life with not many regrets. Unfortunately he was in the press a lot over the past couple of years for swinging way out on the vine. Fortunately he didn’t drop off in the river and drown and it appears he is back on dry ground.

Check out what he did for the paparazzi kid that killed the other day chasing Justin Bieber’s car. He heard that the family was taking donations for the funeral bill and Charlie whipped out his pen and check book and cut a check for $12,000 bucks. Not only did he cut a check but he explained why he did. Seems he was friends with the photographer and had this to say.

“A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future.”
