THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF MAY 16-17, 2015

Last week In Las Vegas, a Las Vegas judge ruled that after two investigations there was no evidence of any type of neglect of Blues Man B.B. King.  B.B.’s guardian, Laverne Toney, was taken to court by three of B.B.’s children who accused Toney of medical neglect and theft.  The judge said in his ruling, and I’m quoting here, “I don’t have anything here that says he lacks capacity.  He has some serious health issues.  But he has counsel.  If he feels like he’s being taken advantage of, he has remedies.” One of B.B.’s daughters stated after the ruling, “We lost the battle, but we haven’t lost the war.” Meaning that this is not over by a long shot.  A lawyer for B.B. said, “It’s all about the Money.” We all kind of knew that that’s what it was all about…. We all hope that they can resolve this situation….. Poor B.B…..

A guy by the name of Matt Marshall, a writer for American Blues Scene Magazine, wrote some B.B. fact on their web site…This is so cool…It’s called 20 Facts you didn’t know about B.B. King…… Stuff like his favorite singer…. Being a Pilot… His first radio appearance….Movies and Television… We have a link to  facts by Matt……

This is always a huge event for the Blues Foundation…Winners that you may know were…Bobby Rush for Soul Blues Male Artist, Lurrie Bell for Traditional Blues Male Artist….Keb Mo for Contemporary Blues Album…Bobby Rush for B.B.

This happened earlier this month and I’m just seeing this.. You may know it, but Ben E. King passed away. Ben had hits such as Stand By Me, Spanish Harlem, Don’t Play that Song for me…and Supernatural Thing, to name a few…Back in the 60’s, When he left the Drifters and went solo, he got on a roll…. Sorry to hear that about a great soul singer, Ben E. King….He was 76 years of age….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF MAY 9-10

After a visit to a Las Vegas Hospital last week, suffering from a minor heart attack,  it is reported by his web site that B.B. King is in Home Hospice Care.  And also on his site, he “Thanks all for the well wishes and prayers….Now, we knew this was coming sooner or later…. TMZ reported that one of King’s daughters call the police because King’s manager and power of attorney for failing to take B.B. to the hospital following his heart attack.  It is alleged by the daughter that the manager stole upwards of 30 million dollars from King….. This is not the last of this…There will be a whole lot more, especially about the money, to come…….So Sad….Really hope that the BB pulls through…At 89 years old, He is still the Greatest Blues Singer to ever sing the Blues…..

This is the Mothers’ Day Weekend and we have an audio note from a mother… It makes sense to me….Listen to it and think about it…..
