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.
