Legendary musician B.B. King passed away last night at the age of 89. CLICK HERE for details.

When I was a teen, I don’t know how many times I listened to U2’s fantastic album, Rattle And Hum. I wore out that cassette tape on my yellow Sony Walkman, and stupidly have yet to replace the album in any form.

The album was also accompanied by a terrific documentary, with tonnes of music of course.

Plus, here’s the studio version of ‘When Love Comes To Town’:
