    I've heard of the name obviously, but never really heard his stuff..... my internet is slow right now , so will check it out at work later.


    Whilst we're on the subject of king's, didn't hear a mention on here for Ben E King last week, or did I miss it?

    That's true, that one didn't get a mention. 2 of the greats.

    If you want to really understand the greatness of B. B. King slap a copy of Live at the Regal on the gramaphone and prepare to have your ears blown back. That's some awesome shit right there.

    I read the title and assumed that you were sad that BlackBerry had discontinued one of their models.
