Shortly after the news about BB King’s passing Tim Duffy (MMRF’s Founder) spoke to Taj Mahal about this incredible Bluesman. Both Taj Mahal and BB King are Music Maker Advisory Board Members. We were incredibly honored to have our photo exhibit We Are the Music Makers! at the BB King Museum in Indianola, MS last year. Here is what Taj Mahal had to say about BB King’s Legacy:

A global original!! B.B.’s music spoke to everyone, everywhere whose souls were alive!
All praises due-pass unto the light from whence you came, my dear Brother!
You certainly left this earth so much the better than you found it!

I and so many others are most thankful for the memories of your awesome graciousness, welcoming warmth, hugs, smiles, positive compliments, encouragement and most of all the purest of pure music. That music will continue to live within those of us who have known the privilege of a lifetime to be in your magnificent presence!

B, you will be more than just sadly missed – you’ll be a milestone in the history of humanity on planet earth!

Taj Mahal
