incredible voice, and his best songs are unbeatable.

RIP His throat was un-fucking-touchable. I remember the first times I heard his music, being so blown away, and I still am. Great people get old and sick, but this one... crushes me regardless. Seemed like such a sweet guy.

No one else like him. A real stylist. Never played an instrument, just sang.

Glad to see a major newspaper mentioned him. Rest easy.

He was a neighbor of mine growing up, but for years we assumed that his tour bus driver lived there because we couldn't imagine a legend like BBB living in among us (he was on the road performing most of the week, but usually home for Sunday dinners). I always felt he was unfairly overshadowed by BB King, even though Bland was more of a soul and R&B guy. I am glad I saw him perform at the Memphis BBQ Fest a few years back. RIP.

He was the black folks' BB King.

Seriously, could ANYBODY sing like him?

Funny you say this. I went and saw him years ago and I was the "white guy" in the audience. And he was fantastic! And I was very under dressed...

the three dudes that sit on the corner in "do the right thing": robin harris name drops him and it's hilarious.
