Big Day for BB King! BB is now 86! BB is still touring and if you play guitar - You've definitely played some of his stuff whether you'll admit it or not. For me, he is the man that can hit one note that will say it all!
BB King is the man!
Charlie Byrd would have been 86 but passed away in 1999 at age 74. Charlie played with Stan Getz and helped push Bossa Nova and samba into the mainstream
Earl Klugh turns 58 today (9-16-11) - Everything Earl plays sounds like you've heard it before and it's familiar and obvious. His touch and timing is impeccable.
