B.B. King on Heaven and Hell

"I don't know what happens after this life. I haven't had my mother or anybody else come back and tell me. I think hell is hell on earth. And heaven to me is a beautiful lady and enjoyment with her. But if there is a hereafter—I wish I could go there."

— B.B. King, Blues musician, died 2015
