I really wasn't expecting B.B. King passing away. He is and always will be a true pioneer of blues music and The Thrill Is Gone is one of my favorite songs.

RIP

San Francisco Giants legend Will Clark had "The Thrill Is Gone" on his home phone answering machine.

That's a huge bummer... BB was a legend and it was because of his music that I gained a great appreciation for the blues.  He will be missed.    :-(

B.B. King made a walk-on appearance on Classic Concentration in October 1990. I wish I had known he would for I would have recorded it.

I wonder if Lucille will be buried along with him?

Chances are I think she would be going either to the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame or the Smithsonian Institution.

Rest in peace, B. B. King. Enjoy paradise.

A Big Rich Fields Drew Carey And Jeff Davis Fan For Ever From Kirsten

Rich Fields Thanks Kirsten. I pick out and supply all of my own clothing. That light gray suit is hard to pair with shirts and ties... but I think the lavender shirt and purple patterned tie pulled it all together.

My Favorite Announcers On The Price Is Right Are Johnny Olson Rod Roddy Rich Fields Jeff Davis.

I Met And Took Two Pictures With Jeff Davis On May 24, 2012 He Is So Nice And Kind In Person.

Rich Fields said this about Drew Carey will always be the first to defend Drew (Carey). He's one of the most genuine, down to earth people in Hollywood that I've ever met. He was the first to come to me and tell me that the show was going in a different direction. He assured me it was not his decision to let me go and I believe him. No one else was open and honest about it, but Drew was. We've continued working together on different projects and we stay in regular touch. We'll be good friends well into the future.
