Let the Mississippi Delta weep-
Let every pop, rock and blues guitarist the world over bow their heads in tribute.
For the thrill is truly gone – the great legend B. B. King has left us.
Lucille, his constant companion
who with his gentle plucking made you feel every emotion known to humankind,
is now silent –
never again to sing out about lost loves and ruined opportunities.
Alas – the thrill is truly gone.
