It's been slightly less than a month since his passing and the world has certainly lost one of greatest guitarists to ever play the Blues. With more than 15 Grammy awards to his credit and a string of accolades that is nothing short of amazing, B.B. King has long been considered one of the Top 100 Guitarists in the world. Because his music and personality touched so many persons, B.B. King will be remembered for many things! While guitar and blues aficionados will certainly remember many of his hits, most of the world will always recall his hit; "The Thrill is Gone". Grammy Hall of Fame Awards are only given to recordings that are at least 25 years old and considered to have 'qualitative or historical significance'. 'The Thrill is Gone' received that honorable designation in 1998.
