B.B. King became a universal star and a figurehead for the blues, through longevity, perserverance and sheer talent. He met with appreciation and recognition wherever he went. As of 1990 and up until his death, the most official tributes, rewards and honours rained down on him regularly like so many signs of affection and recognition. A both modest and generous character, over the space of seven decades, B.B. King kept a mischievous and kind-hearted eye on all those - both laymen and celebrities - who came to show their attachment to and admiration for him.
