Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has been given the all-clear following his cancer treatment.
He underwent seven weeks of medial treatment after a tumor was discovered on his tongue. Following a recent MRI scan, Dickinson has been given a clean bill of health.
In a Facebook post, Bruce says:
"I would like to thank the fantastic medical team who have been treating me for the last few months, resulting in this amazing outcome. It's been tough on my family and in many ways it was harder for them than me. I'd also like to send a heartfelt thanks to all our fans for their kind words and thoughts. I'm a firm believer in trying to maintain a positive attitude, and the encouragement from the global Maiden family meant a great deal to me. Right now, I'm feeling extremely motivated and can't wait to get back to business as usual, as soon as I can!"
Bill Wyman has recalled the moment B.B. King tried to teach him his signature guitar trick – but the ex Rolling Stone couldn't learn it.
The last time Wyman met King was in 2009. He remembers: "He could do that tremolo beautifully. He asked me if I could do it, and I said, 'No, I'm a bass player.' He sat me down with his guitar and I tried to do it – but it was impossible for me. He kept saying, 'Come on, you can do it.' He was so sweet."
King passed away in his sleep last Thursday at the age of 89.
Blues legend B.B. King died on Thursday, May 14, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV. He was 89 years old.
King's passing follows a series of recent health scares including being taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness. Even as recently as a year ago he was still performing 100 concerts a year with his famous guitar he named Lucille.
