B.B. King Rushed to Hospital Over Easter Weekend

B.B. King was reportedly rushed to the hospital over the weekend in Las Vegas, according to TMZ.

The 89-year-old legendary guitarist suffered dehydration issues, due to his type II diabetes.

If you were unaware, B.B. had to cancel eight performances on his tour last fall after he fell ill during a performance in Chicago.

“I’m back at home now listening to music, watching movies, and enjoying some down time,” B.B. shared after canceling his tour. “I think I’m busier at home now than on the road talking to friends calling to check up on me. I do appreciate everyone’s calls and concern. I want to tell you, I’m doing alright.”

B.B. has been living with diabetes for over the last two decades.

We are wishing B.B. a speedy recovery during this time!
