Blues musician B.B. King has been hospitalized, but his daughter says he is doing “much better.”

The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that the 89-year-old was in the hospital for dehydration caused by Type 2 diabetes.

King was diagnosed with diabetes more than 20 years ago. In October, he canceled his concert tour after being diagnosed with dehydration and exhaustion.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has released more than 50 albums.

Representatives for King did not initially respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.
