B.B. King was reportedly rushed to hospital in Las Vegas over the weekend.

King’s daughter, Claudette, has since told the Los Angeles Times the music legend is doing “much better.”

Claudette said King’s illness resulted from dehydration brought on by Type II diabetes, a condition the guitar great has had for more than 20 years.

Last October, King had to cancel a series of concerts because of similar medical issues leading to dehydration and exhaustion. He may have cancelled 8 shows, but he did play 70 dates in total in 2014.
