LAS VEGAS - Blues legend B.B. King remains in hospice care Saturday at his home in Las Vegas.

King's longtime business manager Laverne Toney says the musician had a good night and she welcomed the concern about his health. Toney has legal control over King's affairs.

The 89-year-old musician posted thanks on his official website for fans' well-wishes and prayers on Friday after returning home from a brief hospitalization.

The hospitalization was the second in a month for King, who was diagnosed with diabetes decades ago.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

His guitar, famously named Lucille, has soared and wailed in songs ranging from "Every Day I Have the Blues" to "When Love Comes to Town" to "The Thrill is Gone."
