Update: B.B. King Doing ‘Much Better’

Legendary blues singer B.B. King was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital over the weekend, but relatives say that he is doing “much better,” according to The Los Angeles Times.

King, 89, suffered from dehydration stemming from his Type 2 diabetes. The star canceled a series of performances in 2014 due to health complications as a result of the illness.

King was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes more than 20 years ago.

The King of Blues was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Wishing you a speedy recovery Mr. King.
