During an #AskTheStones question-and-answer session on Twitter, Keith Richards was asked to remember the music, life, and times of B.B. King. Richards said that he had just found out King had died, and that he was, “one of the greats—beautiful style. B.B. was a great guy, you know? He was one of the true gentlemen and I shall miss him a lot. I always had a great time with him when our paths crossed.” He continued, “Well, what can you say now? At least we have his records. And farewell, B.B.” The clip is streaming below.
