Bill pays tribute to unique blues legend BB King

Bill Wyman has joined to list of celebrities paying tribute to blue legend BB King, who has died aged 89.

Bill made his tribute on BBC News – and you can watch the video tribute at BBC News.

Bill recalls going on tour with the music legend in 1969, and revealed that he last saw BB King in 2009. Bill says:

In 1969, we asked him to tour with us, in America. And, so I was able to stand side stage and just watch BB with the entire band. I;d never seen him before that, and so that was quite a fascinating thing, and you realised just what a talent he was.

As Bill says, BB King was a giant – and a unique musician. He’ll be sadly missed.
