As a tribute to B.B. King, who died May 14, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Animals As Leaders’ Tosin Abasi and Dethklok’s Brendon Small performed King’s “The Thrill Is Gone” Friday night at LA’s Wiltern theater.
You can enjoy some fan-filmed footage below.
We’ll have more information on the show, including a photo gallery, later today.
In the meantime, enjoy this guitar-solo-packed performance that also features Satch’s backing band: Mike Keneally (vocals, guitar), Marco Minnemann (drums) and Bryan Beller (bass).
Although King released his well-known version of the song in late 1969, it was written almost 20 years earlier by Rick Darnell and Roy Hawkins.
