B.B. King, Featuring Reggie Richard: Let The Good Times Roll, Live 2009

The King is gone, but he’ll never be forgotten. We’re remembering the legacy of B.B. King today with a clip of “Let the Good Times Roll” from his performance at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2009. The song’s lyrics talk about living life to its fullest, and we can all agree that’s something the guitar legend did.

King always had great bass players, and bassist Reggie Richard is no exception. He lays down a solid walking line throughout the song with a tasteful solo at the 2:05 mark, to which the King applauds.

The King will be missed. I saw B.B. three times where Reggie was laying down the low end. A righteous bottom feeder indeed.

blues | blooz | /n./ 1. melancholic music of black American folk origin, typically in a twelve-bar sequence. 2. B.B. King



B.B.King was to blues like John Coltrane was to jazz. You cannot even MENTION the blues and not know who B.B.King is. That’s a legend right there! He would be surely missed! You felt his every note, lyric, most of all his passion. May he R.I.P 😎🙏🏾


Most excellent bassist ,,,

May B.B. King rest in peace .
