The music industry is mourning the death of guitar legend, B.B. King who died on Thursday night at the age of 89.

King’s lawyer, Brent Bryson confirmed to The Associated Press that the blues icon died in his sleep at his home in Los Vegas. King, who suffered from type II diabetes, had been in hospice care for the past two weeks.

Back in October, the Mississippi native was diagnosed with dehydration and exhaustion and was forced to cancel his tour.

King, who earned the nick name “The King of Blues, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. The musician rose to fame in the early 1950’s and became known for his classic hits including “You Know I Love You,” “Woke Up This Morning” and “Please Love Me.”

In 1970, the guitarist won a Grammy for his song “The Thrill is Gone.” The track also went on to become one of Rolling Stones’ 500 Greatest Songs Of All Times.

Following the news of King’s passing, celebrities and fellow musicians took to social media to remember the late star.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
