BB King saluted Eric Clapton with a toast at the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival:
I’ve been around the world, I’ve met kings and queens. But I’ve never met a better man, a more gracious man my friend Eric Clapton. May I live forever. But may you live forever and a day. Because I don’t want to be here if you’re not around.
