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.
